The Gorillapod by Joby

Want to be the coolest photographer in your group? Then what you need to add to your camera bag of goodies is the Gorillapod!



The Joby Gorillapod firmly secures your camera to just about anything — anywhere and everywhere! Unlike traditional tripods, Gorillapods do not require a level or elevated surface for you to take the perfect shot. Each Gorillapod is made up of 30 or more fully articulating ball-and-socket joints. You can bend and twist them into any shape, and they'll always keep your camera steady! Soft rings and rubberized feet prevent your Gorillapod from slipping in even the toughest environments.

Still want to know more? Check out these websites for Gorillapod reviews:

DigitalCameraReview.com: "The tripod is essentially made of a bunch of 'ball and socket' joints so that the legs can be bent to whatever shape you need. The tips of the legs are almost entirely covered with rubber for grippiness. The rest of the ball joints have rings of rubber to grip whatever they're wrapped around."

YankoDesign.com: "The Gorillapod is about portability with the added advantage of getting you those unique shots that will have people wondering how you got it - say those two squirrels hanging out in the tree, or that beetle busily working away in the morning dew."

Geek.com: "The average tripod may not be very heavy, but it won’t fit in a typical bag and you need a lot of room to get it fully set up. Combine all of these factors and you find that people don’t use tripods unless they have to, and their pictures suffer as a result. Joby’s Gorillapod is a possible solution to this."
