    or what ???

      I did some googling. So, 1/4"-20 means 1/4" thick, 20 threads per inch (this is common for cameras). And the rest of that sentence has been badly copy/pasted, it should say:

      or any other 1/4 -20 device weighing less than 11 lbs or 3/4 mount with included adapter.

      Per ISO 1222:2010,[1] the current tripod screw thread standard for attaching the camera calls for a 1/4-20 UNC or 3/8-16 UNC thread. Most consumer cameras are fitted with 1/4-20 UNC threads. Larger, professional cameras and lenses may be fitted with 3/8-16 UNC threads, plus a removable 1/4-20 UNC adapter, allowing them to be mounted on a tripod using either standard.

    That's a lot of coin in comparison to the Kmart spec $8 one that would do a similar job:

    Obviously nowhere near the same level of manufacturing or feature standard but more Ozbargain price friendly :-)

      Can your $8 Kmart tripod hold a 5kg camera? Because that's what this Gorillapod can do. And if you have a 5kg camera it's probably worth several thousand dollars, all the more reason to use a stand that's rated for the weight. It's not about "level of manufacturing", it's about meeting a very specific need.

      Edit: sorry if that comes across as harsh, what I meant is you're comparing products that do different things.


      A more fair comparison of this kmart tripod would be Gorillapod's smartphone one: (about $50)

      But also - what eDust said.
