Gorillapod Which One for You

Gorillapod which one for you

The Gorillapod original attaches to your camera in seconds, and the legs with 24 joints, can be wrapped around most shapes and surfaces. With the original Gorillapod, you get a portable tripod, that will fit easily in your pocket or bag.

Buy the Joby GorillaPod Original Tripod – Sky Blue  from Amazon.

The next on the list is similar to the original but with magnetic feet. I am not sure that I would feel confident suspending a camera with magnets, even at 325g maximum load.

The next design is the Gorillapod Video with the same legs as the previous two tripods but with pan & tilt video head for compact video cameras and point-and-shoot cameras weighing up to 325g.

Stepping up the load carrying range is the Hybrid for cameras, video cameras and other devices weighing up to 1 kg.

The Gorillapod SLR Zoom is a heavy-duty version of the Hybrid. It attaches to an SLR with zoom lenses, video cameras, and your own tripod head and can support 3kg. Please note that you also need the Joby Gorillapod Ball Head

Followed by the SLR Zoom flexible tripod for SLR cameras with zoom lenses weighing up to 3kg.

Buy the Joby GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Tripod for SLR Cameras from Amazon.

The top of the load carrying range is the Gorillapod Focus flexible tripod for professional camera rigs with large zoom lenses, with a combined weight up to 5kg. Please note that you also need the Joby Gorillapod Ball Head

Buy the Joby Ballhead X for GorillaPod Focus from Amazon


I am not subsidised in any way or form by Joby.


Buy the Joby GorillaPod Focus Tripod for Professional SLRs and Camcorders from Amazon.

It won’t cost you any extra, but it will contribute towards the running costs of this site.

Thanks Alex
