Our take on the Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom

by Woody Sherman

There are times, probably more frequent than you're willing to admit, that you can't do it all by yourself. This applies to photography (or videography) as often as anything else. That's why the Gorillapod SLR-Zoom tripod is worth a camera assistant's salary when you need a stable mounting for your camera. Whether you're trying to get yourself into the shot, or taking time-lapse images, or shooting in low/no light, this extremely portable Gorillapod will attach itself to almost any convenient fixed object and hold your camera rock-steady.

With rubberized ring and foot grips, the tripod stays secure despite rough treatment. The Gorillapod SLR-Zoom is designed for digital SLR-sized cameras with zoom lenses, but it also can accommodate other items like consumer camcorders weighing up to 6.6 lbs.

Overview: The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom by Joby is a flexible tripod. It is made of high quality Japanese ABS plastic with durable German TPE rubber grip rings. The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom can hold up to 6.6 pounds.

Flexible Legs: The GorillaPod's legs have over two dozen leg joints which bend and rotate 360° to give you the flexibility to set up anywhere. The legs can also wrap around pipes or posts. The rubberized ring and foot grips provide enhanced stability.

Camera Mount: The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom has a 1-3/4" diameter mounting platform with  custom, stainless steel 1/4" camera screw that fits the tripod mounts of most cameras. It comes with a 3/8" adapter for use with any professional ballhead.

Note: The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom comes with the 3/8" adapter installed, and will need to be removed before mounting cameras with a standard 1/4" tripod mount. It can be removed by hand or a slotted screwdriver.

A welcome "third hand"

Written by Ralph Graves, Staff Writer - Creative, on 7/5/2012 11:21:00 AM

Sometimes when I've taken group shots, there wasn't room for a tripod. And that meant balancing the camera precariously on a deck rail, or a stack of boxes, or some other less-than-ideal solution. This tripod is made for those type of situations.

Because it has three legs, I can stand it on any flat surface — or better still, any irregular surface. I just bend the legs to adjust to the terrain. I can also wrap one or more the legs around something, such as a tree branch, deck rail or fence to place the camera exactly where I want it.

Be advised: the tripod's legs don't bend easily. The joints move stiffly, but that's a good thing. It means the legs will hold the shape I bend them to. I don't have to worry about the tripod slipping off its perch, even if it's holding on by just one leg.
