I've been looking at the Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom, but to get the one w/ the ball head (which I definitely want), price is $80 for something I wouldn't use all that much. So, trying to find something cheaper, I'm looking at the following.

  • Magnus MegaGrip - $30 w/out a head and $38 w/ a little Oben head (though not quick release). It says 3.3 lbs capacity, so I'm think it should be okay for my Pentax K-x and lens at about 2lbs, but I'm wondering if anyone else has used it.
  • Bower Flexible Bendipod - $25 and says it will hold up to 5lbs and comes with head w/ quick release. I can't find any reviews on this one at all.

Thanks for any insight you can provide!
