Joby JB01112 overview

  • 1Description

The GorillaPod Micro 800 Tripod - Gray isn't technically microscopic, but you will have trouble seeing it when its legs are folded up and it's concealed underneath the base of your small EVIL or MILC or Micro Four Thirds camera – really, any camera under 1.8 lb will do, but this mini-tripod is designed for small interchangeable-lens models.

The Micro 800 is designed to be an always-on tripod, which connects to your camera via its standard 1/4"-20 screw. It's smaller than the base of your camera and weighs only 2.3 oz, so you'll never have a reason to remove it – it will fit comfortably with your camera inside almost any case.

Fan out its legs, and you suddenly have a stable base of support that will allow you to set your camera down on many objects & surfaces to capture a rock-solid shot – whether a low-light landscape photo or a time-lapse video. The aluminum positioning ball of the GorillaPod 800 tilts up to 36° in any direction, so you can level out the frame even if your shooting surface has a significant grade to it. The gray rubber grips at the ends of the zinc alloy legs lend the Micro 800 sure footing on almost any surface.

Sleek and Portable Design
With a slim profile, the GorillaPod Micro 800 is concealed beneath the camera base when its legs are folded, and it easily fits in any case
Aluminum Micro Positioning Ball
The miniature positioning ball allows for 36° of movement in any direction for precise control over photo or video composition
Coated Zinc Alloy Legs
The zinc alloy legs feature rubber foot grips, which combine to stabilize point & shoot cameras on even or uneven surfaces
Fast Setup & Easy Framing
The Micro 800's auto-fanning leg deployment and its effortless ball head positioning enable instant setup and framing, so you'll never miss a shot

    Joby JB01112 reviews

    GorillaPod Micro 800 Tripod - Gray is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keyword: Micro I hadn't seen this in a store, so I didn't realize how small it was. It truly is micro... Overall the construction is good, it seems really well made. The orbiting head is sort of nice too. I bought a hot shoe mount to put on here to hold a speedlite. It seems to handle the weight of it, but when you orbit the head to its extents, the height of the speedlite makes it want to tip over. This is easily fixed by rotating the legs to provide added balance. However, I would not consider it stable and a light wind might still tip it over. It is a cool design because if used on a point and shoot, the tripod folds up and rotates nicely to be parallel with the camera. That is to say, it is a nice compact design for a Micro (lightweight) tripod. It is quite small -- Probably 3.5 legs (Obviously I didn't read the specs page when ordering!).

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Emergency use only Certainly small and light, and barely noticeable - unless you have to take the card or battery out, because it covers the door in the folded position. With the tripod deployed the camera is one inch above the surface the tripod rests on. The degree of adjustment for surface irregularity is OK for fairly straight surfaces such as walls. However, a Nikon 1 with 10-30 lens is not very stable. Care is needed to avoid obvious movement when the shutter button is pressed. The tripod cannot be deployed when the FT1 with its tripod foot is attached, but longer F-mount lenses such as the 70-300 overbalance the tripod anyway. An advance over resting the camera directly on a rock or wall.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautifully made, but expensive and not very versatile. It came as advertised. It does fold up to very small size under the camera, though it is more than half the length of my camera so sticks out too much to leave on and fit in its case. I was surprised how heavy it is; feels as if made of steel. It sits very low to the supporting surface and only has a small rotation capability on the ball head. The legs rotate in a plane so do not provide any accommodation for use on an irregular surface such as a rock. I prefer and will continue to use my old cheap plastic, light weight version with adjustable ball-socket, and adjustable legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little product that is easily tranported I have no negative comments for this tripod. It is the only I have ever purchased of its sort, however. It is nice and compact and I can even store my camera in its case with it attached. It is quite inconspicuous when its folded up and isn't any bother to me when it is attached but not in use. It has an excellent tilt radius for how small it is and seems to stay put on peculiar surfaces. Once I have it in place it stays there too, even with my Nikon 1 series camera and its bulkiest lens. I would recommend it to friends, for certain!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tiny but functional This is a great little tripod. It won't hold even a small DSLR, but for a larger P&S or a lightweight camcorder, it works well. It packs in virtually no space and sets up very easily. My guess is that the tension to hold a camera in place might lessen after lots of use, but I have not yet experienced this. A very smart design. Priced a little high for what is consists of, but I'm still glad I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be prepared, anytime! This little tripod fits into the tripod screw mount on the bottom of most digital cameras. It swivels away from the base by simply unfolding the three legs. The camera can be placed on almost any surface, by positioning the legs, allowing you to have a hands free support, especially if you can use your point and shoot cameras's self-timer mode. No more ruined shots because you don't have a tripod!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really clever idea I got this for my Olympus OM-D and it's a great little idea. Folds away under camera and you forget about it. Then, when need some extra stability, or want a timed shot, out it folds. I wouldn't get it for anything bigger than a CSC camera though... but for CSC cameras it's great. Only issue is the tripod socket is taken - which means can't combine with a black rapid style strap.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Play in the ball socket, not as solid as the smaller version I have the smaller version which is tight with no play in the ball socket. With this one there is considerable left/right play in the ball mount. It's ok , once you position your camera, but disappointing compared to the smaller version. Still a useful tripod. Another reviewer also mentioned this issue, so seems a design flaw.
