I have a much smaller and less capable tripod for my point-n-shoot Cybershot, but as I’ve been getting to know our bigger camera – the Sony Cybershot DSC-F707 – that little portable tripod just cannot hold the larger camera’s weight. Enter the gorillapodSLR. Meatier than it’s little brother gorillapod, the recently released SLR version can hold a camera or camcorder up to 1100g (2.5 lbs) and true to it’s name, the gorillapod can grip like a big monkey onto whatever uneven surface you need to get the shot. My little bendy tripod was good, but this! fantastic. Me and my monkey are headed to London today, where – weather permitting – I’ll be putting it to the test.
Here are two shots (from my cameraphone) of the gorillapodSLR in action. (The Slinky is just there because I like Slinkies.) I encourage you to see the wacky ways Joby shows this tripod in use on their site -¬†it’s fantastic!
Thank you so much, Neil!
