  • Rock solid

I use a 4Ti with battery grip and my largest/heaviest lens is the Canon 70-300mm IS USM. Like any small, table-top style tripod, care must be given to placement, and this unit is actually more stable than some as the leg configurations can be positioned for very stable shooting. Additionally, using the Joby Gorillapod FOCUS & Ballhead X, portrait shooting is quite easy, and the camera stays as positioned without slipping or creep as the tightening mechanising is solid and secure. If you're debating the Joby SLR Zoom model, I'd go with the Focus for a more robust, stable rig. If mine was stolen, I'd buy another one.

  • Unsuitable for task

  • September 02, 2012
  • By: RLP

While the Gorillapod will hold a DLSR with a lens (D700 with 24-70 f2.8) it does so with poor balance and unless you put it in a tripod configuration with the one leg under the lens, then the whole thing tips. As well, there is no way the ball head can hold the camera/lense combination on an angle. The ball head is not tight enough and the camera starts to slip its position as soon as you take your hand away. There is no way to shoot using the gorillapod in a portrait format. What will work is getting the gorillapod without the ball head and then attaching a cheap Manfrotto onto the 1/4-20 screw and use that ball head. While all the balance issues still exist, once you get the gorillapod in place, your camera won't slip from position. While it may have other uses, such as holding a flash, there a less expensive gorillapods to do this task.
