The GorillaPod Hybrid Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head - Red/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

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

        I use this tripod with a GoPro camera with macro lens / Close-up lens mount for underwater filming purpose. With filming distance less than 5 inches and small critters in water, this little tripod (actually medium size) works really well - the height, the size, the flexibility of the legs just perfect for this. Even though most parts are plastic there are a few parts (in the ball head)are made of metal. So if it is being used in salt water I would recommend to rinse (soak) in warm water for at least 15 minutes and then air dry it. It will last a very long time!

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

          Five stars for its quality and price, for a Point & Shoot camera (Sony Cybershot RX100). The tripod itself is solid, yet super light. The "wrapping" feature is smooth and truely useful.
          The ball head is solid and secure, with a quick release connection. This combo is infinitely more versatile than non-ballhead models. Plus, it has a bubble-level.
          The red acsented tripod was even less than the standard gray. I have a Canon 7D DSLR and might use this if it's carefully balanced.

            Upgraded from a smaller GorillaPod. The ball head on this model is the key, winning feature. It allows precise camera positioning without having to fiddle around with the flexible legs. The bubble level works well too.

              Bought it for my compact camera and small video camera which are not too heavy. Love the ball head. I can't beleive earlier versions of this product don't have it since it allows you to place/wrap the legs onto anything and still allow you to easily level the camera. The quick detach adapter is also great. I suggest you get one of those rubberized wires at HD so you can secure a leg when required.

                I use the GorillaPod Hybrid with a Canon G15. I don't use it for anything crazy, but I like that it offers me a pretty wide range of versatility. The level on the ball head is great and I don't worry about the quick release. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone interested in a small, mobile, tripod.

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

                  I was looking for a small, portable tripod to use with some of the smaller gear (Mirror-less camera, flash unit) Specifically I was looking for something to take with me on walks, and that I could setup quickly. The GorillaPod mini-tripod with ball head meets that requirement. I like how the flexible arms/lets hold. My only complaint is that the 'ball head' seems a bit flimsy, but has held up so far.

                      I was impressed with the revolutionary idea of a flexible tripod.
                      This one is just great. Light, easy to use and stable enough for most situations using a video camera or small digital camera. I am taking it on my NY trip next month!

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

                          I'll be traveling to Ireland in August (2013) where I plan to do quite a bit of landscape photography and videography. Because I intend to travel as lightly as possible and not bring any of my full-size tripods, I decided to give this mini-tripod a shot; additionally, I intend to take many images from a low vantage point. I'm impressed with the GorillaPod's strength and versatility, it supports my Canon T3i (with my heaviest lens / Tamron 10-24mm wide angle) without any trouble.

                              I find this mini-tripod really flexible. It's small, yet can handle my Pentax K-30 dslr with a weather resistant kit lens and my tiny Sony RX-100 easily or my older Canon S95.

                              Reason I bought it was because it could handle a light dslr and point-and-shoots as well. plus the very cool and useful level.

                              Yes, the red/black color combo was also a factor, beauty and function are easily achievable.

                                I reviewed many brands and types before buying this one and I'm glad I did. I love it! It is small but not too small. This will change the way I take pictures on-the-go. Especially while hiking.

                                I have a hefty manfrotto tripod that cost me a nice chunk of change and now I find myself using this cheap little tripod more and more.

                                  Hanging my camera on railings, car window, etc. to stabilize for long focal length shooting. It's small enough to pack around, but big enough to be useful.

                                    Same benefits as with any regular TP but without the bulk, you can always find something to put it on, a rock, a car - anything !!!
