Product Highlights
  • Supports up to 2.2 lb
  • Flexible Wrap-Around Gripping Legs

The GorillaPod Hybrid Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head - Gray/Black from Joby is designed to support small cameras with interchangeable lenses – Micro Four Thirds models and various other EVIL (electronic viewfinder, interchangeable lens) compact cameras.

Featuring the same style of bendable, grippy, wrap-around legs that have made GorillaPods both famous and highly useful, the GorillaPod Hybrid can be mounted on fence posts, trees, car hoods, and uneven surfaces – the rubber grips on its legs and feet keep your camera in place in any environment.

The Hybrid model also offers an integrated aluminum ball head that has separate controls for pan and tilt. This will keep the frame level and stable as you pan smoothly across a landscape while capturing a video clip. The GorillaPod Hybrid supports cameras up to 2.2 lb on just about any surface.

With its legs fully extended, the GorillaPod Hybrid measures 10.1", making it a great size for table-top shots and low-angle photography. It weighs just 6.4 oz, so it'll be a no-brainer to pack so you can easily capture high-quality, shake-free video and long-exposure photos.

Wrappable Legs
The GorillaPod Hybrid's flexible, wrappable legs with rubberized rings and foot grips stabilize hybrid cameras weighing up to 2.2 lb (1 kg) on virtually any surface, to capture memories that would have previously gone undocumented
Integrated Ball Head
The tripod's integrated aluminum ball head with ±90° tilt and 360° pan enables you to orient your camera quickly and precisely and nail beautiful compositions as you exercise strict control over portrait and landscape setups
Dual-Action Adjustment Knob
The head's dual-action adjustment knob easily locks the ball head in place, securing it tightly. Separate locking mechanisms for horizontal and vertical movement allow for smooth panning without tilt
Quick-Release Clip
The included slim-line quick-release clip with bubble level stays connected to your camera and snaps into the ball head to ensure instant setup and perfectly level images every time
Durable Design
The GorillaPod Hybrid features best-in-class materials: it's the only tripod in its class to use Japanese medical-grade ABS plastic and German TPE for secure joints that stay firm and grippy, even after years of shooting

      I use this exclusively for the Sony Action Cam HDR-100v. It serves well as a quasi-stabilizer with thumb and 1 or 2 fingers on the tripod head while run & gun shooting. It also does the tripod function well. And it's easy to hold and maneuver above a crowd.I like that it's lightweight, small, and flexible without a lot of moving parts to adjust. Easy to carry around anywhere and it's water proof. Also the bubble level is essential when using a action cam with ultra wide angle lens. Keeping the camera level helps eliminate massive distortion those little cameras produce. The down side: It is not a strong tripod, that's why I only use it for light weight action cam. The legs can pop out of the socket if you force a radical bend. But they pop back in like a dislocated shoulder.Nevertheless, it is very stable with a Action Cam, and that's all I'll ever use it for. And, I use it with the Action Cam all the time.

          Comments about Joby GorillaPod Hybrid Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head - Gray/Black:

          Bought as gift for my wife. Lost het first Joby in NZ as it slipped off her backpack ?? Make sure to wrap one leg around another if attached to backpack strap. Just a heads up from experience.

          Nice, Lightweight.

          For almost any P&S the quick release plate is large enough to not allow you to change the battery as the compartment can not opened. Not the fault of Joby. Again, just a heads up.

          The small tripod head does allow for easier composing than other models which have to constantly be tweaked by legs while out in the field.

                        Too useful. I can fix it in almost everything wih reliability.
                        Of course that in slippery things you probably won't fix it.

                              Mounted the GoPro, bent the legs and hung it from top of the door. I recorded a jam session without invading the floor space with a tripod. Using the high angle was perfect video coverage and the GorillaPod Hybrid Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head was the perfect tool for the job. Never thought I would need it, now I will take it everywhere I go and may invest in another. B & H delivered it in record time and as always has delivered a quality product. The ball head with quick release make it all the better.

                                        I work in the sports industry operating a camera mostly for major league baseball and I bought my GorillaPod to hold up an extra 7 inch program monitor. I had to make a modification and change the screw to the monitor as the screw that comes with the Gorilapod is for cameras and not monitors. Other than that this product works just like I hoped it would! It is quick to set up, strong and with the bubble on the head makes for level shots when I used it with my SLR camera.

                                          Comments about Joby GorillaPod Hybrid Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head - Gray/Black:

                                          I bought this to use with my new Sony RX-100. Coming off a full blown DSLR with Gitzo tripod and Acratech ballhead, I was looking for something to provide adequate support without the hassle and bulk of a full sized tripod. After a lot of research, I decided on this, and it fits the bill nicely. Well made and the rubber/silicone rings and feet really let it grip whatever surface you have it on. The little ballhead, with the level and the ability to go 180 degrees in two directions in order to get the vertical shots, and the panning function, make it easy to set up the shot you are after. The quick release plate goes on and off the camera easily by using a quarter to tighten/loosen the plate, and it clicks firmly into place on the ballhead. Just push a button to release. For use with a point and shoot, small video camera, or even a DSLR with a small zoom, it's perfect. For a small, extremely portable tripod, I don't think you could do any better!
