Built into the GorillaPod 500 is a small stainless-steel ball head capable of tilting 90° for portrait photography and featuring a standard 1/4"-20 screw, which is used to attach to your gear. To help improve its grip and stability on unstable surfaces, the joints and feet of the stand are rubberized in certain areas. The rest of the tripod is made of a proprietary ABS plastic designed to provide durability and stable performance.

  • Can be used with point-and-shoot cameras, portable lights, and any other gear weighing up to 1.1 lb
  • Flexible legs made up of joints that allow you to bend the tripod for better stability and wrap it around sturdy objects
  • Built-in ball head with 90° tilting for portrait shots, attaches to your equipment via standard 1/4"-20 mount
  • Compact and lightweight at 2.8 oz, can be transported in a small bag or easily carried in your hands or pocket

Sturdy little pod

Very nice small, short tripod. Good quick release and easy to use for some unusual view points. Great for hanging on a tree limb, it really holds well.

JOBY GorillaPod 3K Flexible Mini-Tripod w Ball Head Kit

This tripod was included as a freebie with purchase of the Lowepro backpack that I purchased for an upcoming trip. I will probably take the JOBY Mini-Tripod with me instead of my larger Vangaurd travel tripod. The JOBY appears to be well made. I have not used it yet.

Works as promised, with more possibilities than I knew.

All the reviews I read before buying were not wrong. This is easy to use, stable, versatile and the ball head kit makes documenting my printmaking demo videos so much easier while getting closer to the action. There were similar tripods available on B&H, but I'm glad I purchased this exact size for broader versatility, while still being able to support the weight of my camera and mobiles with confidence. I expect to use this tripod a very great deal, indoors and out.

Great for vlogging & go pros & small digitals!

Gave this as a gift to a friend that does vlogging and time lapse photos with go pro and small Sony Alpha mirrorless. He was absolutely thrilled to get this tripod and said it was the best give i have ever given him! Excited to use it because of the flexible legs he can attach and position it how he needs it!

Great for what it is!

Obviously a small trip-pod. It's not meant to support large lens but is awesome for smaller lens and shooting low to the ground.

STRONG GEAR FOR SURE

The Joby 3k is strong enough for my DSLR on the go and can wrap around something if needed.

Pretty well made.

I'd go with B&H # JOJB01507 because it has a small ball head for easy control of flash positioning. All you need to get your flash on there is B&H # VECS
