JOBY GorillaPod 3K Flexible Mini-Tripod

Boasting remarkable versatility for supporting your gear, the GorillaPod 3K 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 6.6 lb, it can reliably hold most mirrorless cameras, mid-sized DSLRs, and portable lights. The notably compact construction of the tripod, featuring a 9.4" height and 8.7 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 3K are rubberized in certain areas. The rest of the tripod is made of stainless steel 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 6.6 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

JOBY 3K Reviews

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.

Quick-release platform backlash

By Yuri

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

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.

Pretty well made.

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.

Does exactly what you need it to do

Asked by: GERALD
The JOBY GorillaPod 3K Flexible Mini-Tripod with Ball Head Kit is rated to support more than 6 pounds. Most of the time an Olympus camera and pro level lens would weigh 3-4 pounds.
