JOBY GorillaPod 5K Flexible Mini-Tripod

Boasting remarkable versatility for supporting your gear, the GorillaPod 5K Flexible Mini-Tripod from Joby has legs made up of several joints that allow you to wrap it around objects and adapt it for use in uneven ground. With a load capacity of 11 lb, it can reliably hold professional DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and other kinds of gear. The notably compact construction of the tripod, featuring a 15.2" height and 17 oz weight, makes it easy to store or carry it while travelling.

To help improve its grip and stability on unstable surfaces, the joints and feet of the GorillaPod 5K are rubberized in certain areas. The rest of the tripod is made of metal and a proprietary ABS plastic designed to provide durability and stable performance. Featuring a 3/8"-16 thread adapter at the top which can be removed to reveal a 1/4"-20 screw, the stand can be used directly with your gear or attached to an optional ball head for further shooting capabilities.

  • Can be used with cameras, lights, speakers, and any other gear weighing up to 11 lb that is compatible with 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 screw threads
  • Flexible jointed legs allow you to secure your equipment to most surfaces
  • Compact with a weight of 17 oz and height of 15.2", can be transported in a small bag or easily carried in your hands or pocket
  • Rubberized joint rings and feet to provide enhanced stability in difficult terrain

JOBY BallHead 5K

Supporting equipment weighing up to 11 lb, the BallHead 5K from Joby uses a standard 1/4"-20 threaded screw to mount compatible DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and speedlights. It features full 360° panning and 90° tilting for nearly unrestricted movement, complemented by a separate panning lock for precise adjustments along a single axis. An Arca-type compatible quick release plate is employed for quickly attaching and detaching your gear while you work.

At only 5.1 oz and with a height of 3.3", the BallHead 5K is portable and can be easily carried without weighing you down. It is designed to be paired with the GorillaPod 5K stand and works with several Joby pro-level accessories that can extend the versatility of your ball head. However, it can also be used on any standard tripod with a 1/4"-20 mount.

JOBY 5K Reviews

Currently in Nepal

This little gem is working great for me in Nepal. Doesn't way much. Easy to pack. Just used it to hold my 100-500 on a handrail to get a predawn shot of Annapurna II. It did wander a little bit by setting a 10 second timer it would settle out before the shot. I have used it to capture 1/4 second shots of waterfalls using a14-35 and no issues. When you can't use a large tripod this pod a great tool.

Awesome

I purchased the Joby 5k tripod to hold my Nikon Z7ii with mounted a 24-200mm. No weight issues so far. I have yet to field test though. I am taking it Antarctica for some ground level shots. Personally I think it is a great bang for the buck.

Like the convenience

I have not used this tripod extensively, but I have also not been very careful with it either. It has already acquired some dings and scratches during the one month that I used it. But mainly: this has it has held up well against my careless usage, and worked well enough with my APSC DSLR (Pentax K3-II) and a 20-40mm lens. This has been a very good addition to my travel kit.

Does exactly what you need it to do

Quick-release platform backlash

By Yuri
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-08-12

There are no complaints about the tripod, but the quick-release plate has a backlash, which makes the whole set unsuitable for work.

Nice tripod
