- Very small — 7" × 2" folded
- Lightweight – 3.2 oz.
- Built-in strap to attach to posts, poles, branches, etc.
- the Ultramount (ball & socket) pieces are made of plastic.
- the small mount may sag with off-center or forward-distributed weight, such as small DSLRs with lenses. The plastic clamp may not be able to provide enough friction to stop sag.
The mount on my first one, the now-discontinued Ultrapod Go, broke the first time I tried to use it when backcountry camping. I was hiking for several days, and rather than carry it the whole time, I tossed it when I came across a dump site. I decided to try again with the newer Ultramount Grip. I only use it to hold GoPros or my phone, but it hasn't let me down.
With a small load on top like a compact point-and-shoot, or GoPro or smartphone, the low and wide base makes this very stable. If you can strap it to a tree, fallen branch, or anything else sturdy, it won't budge an inch during timelapses.
