Can this hold a full size DSLR with zoom lens on it?  I'm speaking about on its own with out tipping?

The B&H listing claims a payload of 100lbs. That's a lot.

Tipping depends upon the center of gravity. Most of us put the lens over a leg to get extra support.

Peter McKinnon reviewed this on Youtube a while ago and put a Canon 1DX on it with what looks like a 24-70 f2.8 lens. So yeah, I'd imagine it's fine.

1) Everything they show on that page looks like a lightweight application.
2) No specs, including payload, are listed.
3) The head doesn't strike me as capable of supporting a big DSLR w/ 70-200 lens.
4) It's unfair to claim a GorillaPod will collapse. They don't, if used within their specs. Joby makes good stuff.

100lbs?  No kidding that seems really high for that.

1, The base is not a hard one, not stable.
2, Not useable in Nature.

Light is free… capturing it is not!
