The Joby GorillaPod Video is a flexible-leg table-top tripod intended for mounting small cameras with video capabilities, such as point & shoots that capture video files and shoot & share camcorders. The unique GorillaPod design allows you to bend and twist the legs for a customized camera angle on any sort of surface.

With a micro-ball video head, the tripod enables you to pan 360° and tilt up to 135° in one direction. (There's even a tiny pan bar for smooth operation.) The head's universal 1/4"-20 screw will attach to any small camera or camcorder with a corresponding thread. A quick-release plate is included so that without having to fiddle with the screw, you can easily switch from GorillaPod-mounted shots to unencumbered handheld shooting.

The GorillaPod Video's wrappable legs feature super-strong magnetic feet composed of the element neodymium. This opens up a variety of creative options, from fridge-mounting the video camera to achieving bird's-eye-view shots from high up on a telephone pole.

The tripod and head are constructed of machined aluminum, high-quality ABS plastic, and corrosion-resistant steel. The durable TPE rubber grip rings ensure a high degree of friction when the legs are wrapped around an object – as well as a solid grip for when you're shooting handheld with the camera attached to the GorillaPod Video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the magnets! Although I bought the wrong product and had to return it for a bigger tripod, this product really impressed me. I like the magnets and the company's customer service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for GoPro/Action camera This tripod is perfectly made and designed for GoPro use. The flexible legs allow an even and stable base on almost any terrain or tree/pole/rock surface that your shot may require. The magnetic feet are an added bonus that let the photographer use even more unusual locations to mount to, especially in more urban areas that may have multiple areas for the rare earth magnets in those feet to grab hold of. One of my favorite GoPro accessories carried in my everyday camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Little Twisty-Bendy-Pod The GorillaPod Video by Joby is the coolest tripod that I ever used. As you can see there are infinate positions only limited by your own imagination. The feet have magnets in them which add the convenience of using metal surfaces to latch on to. The magnets are very strong and able to easily hold my Fujifilm FinePix F770EXR at a 90 degree angle with no problem. The magnets are also coated with a hard rubber, so there are no concerns with scratching the surface that you are using to balance your camera. Finally, the arm that you would assume is primarily used for shooting video is also great for adjusting the camera angle for stills.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from good tripod, bad video head with weak friction The Tripod itself comes in handy in a lot of situations. The quality is very good and the magnets are a smart addition. But the video head is not so good. The friction for rotating the head horizontally is good. But the problem is the weak friction when you are pitching the camera. In almost all positions except the perfectly vertical one, the camera rotates downwards when you let go of the lever. I am using a iPhone 6s Plus and a Sony RX100 IV. As long as you film yourself and hold the lever, it's okay. When you try to be on the video or foto yourself and the camera is not perfectly vertical the head will rotate down, making it completely useless for such situations. Don't forget: Especially when you use something like a GorillaPod, you will - most likely - not use a vertical position for your camera. In my opinion a simple lock mechanism would suffice and make this a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't stop shaking I have had polio since I was a kid. My hands always shaked and I was never able to even try and use a Camcorder. When I bought the one I have now, it came with a stabilizer so I thought my problem was solved. It wasn't. I went to your website looking for tripods. When I wasn't sure which to buy I went to your chat room and asked which one he would recommend. he told me to look up the Gorillapod. I decided to order one and give it a try. It was a great decision. I am now able to use my Panasonic HM-TA1, that I also ordered from you, and take wonderful movies. Thanks, Bill Engelhart

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish it were a bit tighter/stronger The magnets on this thing are terrific, and the legs are marvelously strong for the size. I just wish the ball head was a little tighter, or there was a way to adjust the amount of resistance it has. It starts to sink with what seems to me like way too low a weight threshhold. This leads to a situation which requires the camera to be *PERFECTLY LEVEL* (NO EXCEPTIONS), or else it'll sink and end up pointing at the floor or the ceiling. For me, this strips away the usefulness of the reason I got this tripod. I wanted to be able to set up a small video camera inconspicuously up on stage to record some musical performances, and then leave it while I operate another camera from a less distracting position. I end up having to prop the camera (on the tripod) up against some other stable item in order to prevent it from sagging after I walk away. A tighter ball head could completely solve this problem, and would easily earn this tripod 5 stars from me. As it is, this tripod is only as strong as its weakest link, and that lands it as a big fat 2. :\

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... It would be great if it stayed in place but just the weight of my iPhone 5 makes the tripod top twist down and out of position. I thought it was because of my Otter Box case so I used it completely by itself but the same thing kept happening. If it stays in position for a minute, it will then start falling down again--thus, my video will start with a shot on my head and then end just with my feet in view. I'm not sure why I never read about this problem in previous reviews. I figured it must have been some mistake on my end but I had two different movie industry friends play with it and they were getting the same results. Yes, it moves smoothly. But without someone continually holding it, it quickly moves smoothly OUT of position! Overall, I was disappointed with the product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The neck is too loose! Great concept! Almost everything is spot on EXCEPT the neck, (the area that little silver arm is connected to) is too loose. There is (unfortunately) no way to tighten this. I am using a IPhone 4s which is heavy but the tripod should be able to hold it at the intended angle and not slip out of position. If the tripod is perfectly straight (three legs on a flat surface) and the camera balance is directly above the legs, it will hold it still; but if it is tilted more than 30 degrees (camera looking up or down) the camera will shift to the necks farthest position. It is a slow smooth shift (the neck just seems snugly loose). If you are trying to make use of the magnetic feet, (awesome idea) and the camera legs are horizontal to the ground in any degree the camera slowly slips downward due to that nasty thing called gravity. If there was a way to tighten the 360 degree neck (both the X & Y axis are affected) then this would be the best camera tripod. Due to the loose neck it does not function as designed.
