{Blogger Tools} GripTight GorillaPod Stand Review

Gorilla grip 1When I started blogging I was not too much concerned with my blog pictures or how I was going to take them in general. I was interested in just writing my post end of, until after reading other blogger’s posts on the importance of having pictures in the post (good quality pictures) and I will not claim to have achieved that but working on it. Almost all the bloggers I have the pleasure of meeting or talking to or even just following seems to have the latest big camera’s for their blogs (Nikon mostly) which is nice investment but unfortunately I am not one of them. If you skim through my blog you will find that almost 3/4 of my pictures were taken using my iphone. I do have a simple but good enough camera I was given for christmas last year and I love it but usually forget it when I am out and about.

Gorilla grip 2When the opportunity with giffgaff arose to test out the GripTight GorillaPod Stand I was all over it as I use my phone to take pictures and/or make videos a lot so this stand would come in very handy for me. I used to have a stand I purchased I think from eBay worst mistake ever, it was so unstable and so flimsy. Every time I would stand my camera on it the stand would shake and because my camera lens was almost heavier than the stand it always tipped my lens down which was not cool when filming or even taking a picture. The GripTight GorillaPod Stand is so much more stable and it’s actually quite stylish, though it’s intended for smart phones I used it with my camera and it still held and was very stable and there was no risk of my camera lens facing downwards or worse falling.

Gorilla pod 3The flexibility of the GripTight GorillaPod Stand makes this the idea stand to have and you do not need to limit yourself to what and how you can use it. Visit Joby to see how many ways you can use this product, I recommend this product to anyone looking for a flexible stand which is adjustable and fits all best selling smartphones, easy to set-up and disassembles without hassle as well as small enough to be carried everywhere without any trouble.

Do you use your phone to take pictures? If you have a ‘good enough’ camera, do you use aids like tripod stands to help with filming or even just taking pictures?


Disclosure: I was sent this product by giffgaff for free in order to facilitate this review, no other forms of compensation were given regardless I only recommend products I am happy to use and/or would use regardless.

    I just upgraded my phone and the picture is amazing. Now, I have to get a stand, just like this. Thanks for the review and now, off to take amazing photo.

      You welcome, check out Joby and see what you fancy

  7. December 4, 2014 / 8:26 am

    I rarely use my phone to take pictures, but then again, it doesn’t take the best of quality of pictures. Hopefully, I’ll get a new one that does sometime, though!

    • December 4, 2014 / 10:45 am

      I am fortunate my iPhone takes amazing pictures

  8. December 4, 2014 / 4:37 am

    I have the gorilla pod too, mine doesn’t hold my phone though, but I’d love to get the attachment for it too. It’s so handy for taking pics!

    • December 4, 2014 / 10:43 am

      You should check out joby they have amazing options and I think they sell the attachment separately

    I have a gorilla pod but not one that holds my camera. This is a great stocking stuffer!

    • December 4, 2014 / 10:42 am

      I like this one more because of the tight grip

  10. December 4, 2014 / 12:38 am

    A nice tripod! Will be perfect for selfies too!

    • December 4, 2014 / 10:42 am

    What a very cool gadget! I always use my phone to take my pictures because I seem to never have my camera with me when I need it! It definitely looks sturdy!

    • December 3, 2014 / 2:28 pm

      I am the same and so I am happy with my grip stand which I am now carrying in my bag all the time

  16. December 3, 2014 / 1:40 pm

    I’m not cool because I don’t have my own griptight gorillapod stand. Easily changeable though. It’s the cuteset little thing I’ve seen in awhile.

    • December 3, 2014 / 2:28 pm

      hahahaha am sure you are cool enough

  17. December 3, 2014 / 10:51 am

    This is so cool, I always thought it was pointless but now I understand the product better.

    • December 3, 2014 / 2:27 pm

      Glad to have explained it better

  18. December 3, 2014 / 10:01 am

    I definitely take photos with my phone now and again because my camera is bulky and it’s just so much easier. This product does look really great!

    • December 3, 2014 / 2:27 pm

      I think with the phones it’s just more convenient hence why I usually use them than carrying bulky cameras

  19. December 3, 2014 / 9:18 am

    That’s perfect for trying to get a portrait style shot so you can keep the shot steady and get a perfect picture! 🙂

    • December 3, 2014 / 9:25 am

      Absolutely, I love this little pod stand especially the stability and flexibility of it
