The SwitchPod is an alternative to the tried and true Joby Gorillapods for vlogging. But is it actually worth it?
The SwitchPod is definitely a well build vlogging tripod and there are a lot things I like about it and some things I don’t.
In this video I will give you my personal opinion of this tripod. For transparency, I purchased this tripod, it was not given to me.
In summary, I really like the build. The grip is amazing. It is very comfortable to hold.
I am not a fan of the tightening mechanism and while it works as a tripod, it is not as flexible as the Gorillapod.
The SwitchPod has a lower profile and is easier to fit into a backpack.
It does not come with a ballhead unless you upgrade, but you are probably better off getting it without a ballhead and then get one separately that has a quick release plate. My favorites are this one from Joby and this more affordable one from Sunwayfoto.
