An introduction to Joby GorillaPods

Introducing Joby GorillaPods, the latest (and coolest!) incredibly versatile accessory to be added to the SRB tripod range.

The Joby GorillaPods are no bigger than the average table-top tripod, with three flexible-joint legs that are designed to wrap around, bend and support themselves on a variety of objects and surfaces.

Well-known by photographers as the perfect travel companion for their lightweight, compact and sturdy structures, the GorillaPod range is suitable for all types and sizes of photographic equipment.

Handy for when you want to attach your heavy DSLR & lens combo, shoot handheld footage with the latest action cameras, or even attach an off-camera flash.

When to use GorillaPods

Whether you’re exploring nature, experimenting with long-exposure or getting up close with some macro shots, the extreme versatility of a GorillaPod is fantastic.

The flexibility of the GorillaPod legs allow for an infinite number of positions and possibilities when it comes to setting up, giving consistent and steady use on un-even surfaces.

Unlike many standard photography tripods, these allow you to get up close with your subject and as low to the ground as possible. This means achieving brilliant up-close photography from all kinds of angles. For example, check out the incredibly creative toy photography from @plasticaction on instagram:

Time-lapse photography and long-exposure are other wonderfully creative options. By positioning the GorillaPod as low as possible to the ground and directing your camera upwards to the night sky, you can achieve a steady wide-angled view.

One of our personal favourites is using a GorillaPod for Digiscoping. It’s as simple as wrapping the legs of the tripod around a wooden fence, attaching a spotting scope and enjoying an afternoon of capturing birds in flight.
