Targus TG-GP5010 Large Digital Grypton Tripod is rated 3.625 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, other products are more flexible I bought this tripod because I needed a tripod and my roomate had one similar to this that worked great. The tripod is probably a little larger than I needed. I do love how the legs are moveable and you can have mroe flexibility in the shots that you take. However, the flexibility of this tripod is not as good as the product that my roomate had. Overall it is a sound product, I think I just needed a smaller size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Pros: It works a few timesCons: legs are hard to maneuver, in comparison to other similar products. The top is made of plastic, so it's likely to easily break, like mine did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for point and shoot cameras This is good for what it is. Don't expect it to hold your expensive heavy DSLR. That would be stupid. If you have an expensive camera don't go to target to buy accessories for it. Just a clue for you. This thing is fine for any point and shoot and if you don't want to spend a ton of money. It is what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I needed a tripod for when I go storm chasing, and this is PERFECT! It holds my camera at any angle, and attaches to almost anything! It's amazing! I thought it would be more flimsy than it is. It is really strong, and built well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised We, too, were in the market for a Gorillapod but needed it fast. I had read very bad reviews for the Sunpak flexible tripod sold at a major electronics store, so we went to Target and found the Targus... we didn't expect much.Happily, this product worked for all of our amateur photographing needs! In just two days, we have used it as a traditional tripod as well as wrapping it around trees and fences. A bit of advice, though: USE COMMON SENSE! You'll want to make sure that it is propped up against something (like a branch or fence cross-rail) for the best support. Pretty sure that you could have some costly damage to your camera if you get overly ambitious and expect too much from this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use it for your off-camera flash, too. I've got two of these. I don't trust it with my dSLR, but to be honest, I have not tried it. Mainly because it would be an expensive mistake if it failed.I do use these to mount my off-camera strobes. The tripod is perfect for that. The quick-release head is a plus. The internal wire is pretty stiff, so I don't worry about anything coming loose while I'm not watching. The mount is 1/4" x 20-thread (common photography equipment size).I definitely trust this for a point-and-shoot camera, or off-camera flash, or anything else that is that small.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Okay I was looking for a Gorillapod-SLRZoom but this was all they had in the store so it would have to do for the time being. My camera weight was just under the max the lit said this could handle but I had to really tighten the thumbscrew on the head to jeep it from drooping down. The legs are grippy enough but seem to have some kind of flexible wire inside them that is a bit hard to contort to grab onto various things. It never could give a secure grip I was confident to trust my dslr with. This should work fine for tiny point and shoots but definitely nothing even a bit over 2 pounds.
