I recently bought a small, cheap flexible/bendable tripod for my action cam an I am fascinated by the possibilities that I have because I am able to securely mount it to nearly any object I could think of.
I would love to have the same flexibility with my EOS 750D (no massive tele-zoom lenses or anything, but some added weight because of an external mic). The problem is the only product I could find which is supposed to support a DSLR is the Joby Gorillapod DSLR Zoom. However going through the reviews many people complain, that it will just fall apart after only few months and that it does not really support the weight of DSLRs and tends to sink under the weight. Everyone I know in person who owns one says the same. In addition, a guy on youtube called Neistat, seems to have been using Gorillapods for years as selfie sticks, but says he also has to get a new one every few months and would not trust it to support a DSLR in "normal tripod mode".
So, is there any alternative to the DSLR Version of the Gorillapod which offers the same flexibility, but does not fall apart after a short period of time?
