    REI Members get back an estimated $ 5.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Happy at first. I was extremely happy at first. Well, even for the first year I owned it, it worked great. Held my DSLR just fine. Adjusted easily to the terrain I was leveling a camera against. Is small enough to find room for it in my backpack... But then, I started having issues with the legs separating (falling off) as I positioned the legs. Now, two legs are extremely weak, and unless I am very careful as I position them, they will separate and I almost dropped the camera over a ledge as the tripod failed under the weight of my camera. The cause, cracking of the lower ring in the ball socket. It wasn't apparent at first, but after close inspection, every socket that easily separates you can see (better when manipulating the legs) a crack that creates a weak connection. I haven't abused my gorillapod. There are no other signs of damage or abuse on my pod. So this leads me to believe that this is solely a manufacturing issue. I've written to Joby, but am still waiting a reply. It's too bad, as I really liked this tripod at first, but without some real assurance that this won't happen again, I won't shell out the money for another one of these.
