The Joby GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head - Black/Red is an ultra-versatile mini-tripod or grip that can be used with large SLR cameras with zoom lens attached, or even with camcorders (its load capacity is 6.5 lbs). Its three multi-segmented flexible legs can be formed to grip almost any protrusion, be it a branch, doorknob, rock, or uneven surface.

Each of the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom's leg joints can bend and rotate 360°, to wrap around objects. The bottom rubber segment on the legs is larger to allow the tripod to be used in the traditional way.

The included ball head attaches via the standard 1/4"-20 screw at the top of the tripod, and it tilts 90° and pans a full 360° smoothly. The included quick-release clip features a bubble level, which allows you to even out your frame quickly & accurately – a welcome feature when you're using a camera support that can be set up in such wild positions.

Comes supplied with a 3/8" thread adapter, which allows use of your own tripod head
Over two dozen leg joints bend and rotate 360° to form the perfect gripping shape
Flexible, wrappable legs with rubberized foot grips for stability in any environment
Included ball head enables smooth 360° pan and 90° tilt for quick and precise camera adjustments

      It's Small. It's Light. Has a sweet ball Head with a bubble level the originals didn't. It gets down on the ground for great perspectives and hangs for dear life on any handy post, limb or other inanimate object in locations that would never let in a real tripod.Just make sure you get the size that can handle your load and you're golden.

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

        This is an addition to several GorillaPods I already own. This model is good for small to medium SLR cameras with medium size lenses. If you are looking for something to hold a little larger lens, look at the GorillaPod Focus. Both are excellent products and my goto when I need to creatively stabilize a camera.

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

          We bought this primarily for our genealogy research. It can hold our camera to use macro to photograph small items or documents when the light requires a long exposure. It is also compact enough to carry on trips, and is useful in all the ways others have mentioned. We have no problems with it so far.

                      Purchased specifically to use on back country photo & scouting trips for deer hunts. Gorillapod is lightweight, conforms to tree limbs, fenceposts, rocks & uneven terrain. Good support for either my Canon SLR or spotting scope & it's weight is nothing compared to a standard tripod. Yes I'd recommend it if light weight is important & if you're in the mountains or trudging through snow it usually is

                        I use this in situations where tripods "aren't allowed". I can usually find a spot to wrap the legs around something so I can do longer exposures without obviously violating a "no tripod" policy. It's lightweight and easily attaches to the camera body. The only downside is that I wish I'd purchased one that had higher weight limit. Given the weight of my favourite lens this tripod can't handle it but does get the job done with my lighter lenses.

                                Bought an imitation---that was a mistake. Haven't used it much yet, but it feels sturdy and flexible enough to wrap around most anything. I hope it will be sturdy enough to use with my Nikon D300s with my 24-70 2.8 lens attached. I like the ball head and the level.

                                This tripod is able to grip onto most uneven surfaces including tree branches, structural posts and rocks. Spirit level window gives accurate camera level. I took some excellent panoramic photos, and with the use of self timer on my camera, `selfies' and family snaps became possible. Also loved your shop on West 34th street NYC

                                  It does what it does.
                                  It can be attached to a fence, a tree, etc as long as its flexible legs can wrap around.
                                  Of course its legs are short but if you want a long tripod buy a traditional tripod. Low angle is kind of fun too.

                                    I bought it for my Canon T3i. It is perfect design for what I want. I don't have to carry a long tripod anymore.

                                      Sometimes a full sized tripod is too much to take on a trip, when packing room is limited and I need to travel light. The GorillaPod is a great alternative. Steady, flexible, and small! I tried a cheaper imitation a few years ago, and it wasn't designed for much more than a small point-and-shoot, and it broke apart. The GorillaPod takes lots of bending and twisting and I don't worry about it falling apart.

                                      Adjusts firmly and steadily (even in uneven or vertical structures), even with my 18-250 lens zoomed out. It can be acquired without the the ball head for a lower price, but reducing its practicallity.Cons: a little expensive for a tripod that will not totally replace a proper one

                                        I am an amature who has a Canon T3i with an 18-135 lens. I purchased the Gorillapod for its compactness and weight for an up coming trip to the med. I soon learned trying it out at home and down by the docks that as a table top tripod it holds the camera as stable as my standard tripod. As a wrap around gripper device it also held the camera how I wanted it positioned. In the gripping mode the ball head takes some forethought when flipping the the camera 90 deg. All-in-all I am glad I bought this product.

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

                                                It's Small. It's Light. Has a sweet ball Head with a bubble level the originals didn't. It gets down on the ground for great perspectives and hangs for dear life on any handy post, limb or other inanimate object in locations that would never let in a real tripod.Just make sure you get the size that can handle your load and you're golden.
