Want to get the best photos of your little one? Forget the selfie stick and go straight for a JOBY Gorilla Pod. This flexible tripod lets anyone get great shots almost anywhere.
From the floor to outdoors, the bendable legs of the Gorilla Pod make getting a stable shot easy. It can attach to almost anything, from bike handlebars to door handles and tree branches. Thanks to the three legs, it can also stand on its own on almost any surface, level or not. Simply bend or twist the tripod stand to get the angle you need, and never miss a moment again.
The Gorilla Pod also works great with video cameras and pocket projectors, as well as most smart phones and digital cameras. You can get Gorilla Pods that can hold 1kg, 3 kg, or 5 kg, depending on your exact needs, though 1 kg is generally enough for most basic equipment. You can also purchase a Gorilla Pod Pro, which comes with a clamping mount to keep your phone and other expensive devices even more secure.
We’ve used our Gorilla Pod for years, for everything from filming birthday parties and holidays, to taking group photos and projecting movies. The lightweight tripod folds down to fit into most bags and sets up in seconds without adding extra bulk. Whether you need a lightweight stand or an extra pair of hands to get the best shots, the Gorilla Pod makes it happen.
