Joby JB00171 Overview
The Joby GorillaPod Video is a flexible-leg table-top tripod intended for mounting small cameras with video capabilities, such as point & shoots that capture video files and shoot & share camcorders. The unique GorillaPod design allows you to bend and twist the legs for a customized camera angle on any sort of surface.
With a micro-ball video head, the tripod enables you to pan 360° and tilt up to 135° in one direction. (There's even a tiny pan bar for smooth operation.) The head's universal 1/4"-20 screw will attach to any small camera or camcorder with a corresponding thread. A quick-release plate is included so that without having to fiddle with the screw, you can easily switch from GorillaPod-mounted shots to unencumbered handheld shooting.
The GorillaPod Video's wrappable legs feature super-strong magnetic feet composed of the element neodymium. This opens up a variety of creative options, from fridge-mounting the video camera to achieving bird's-eye-view shots from high up on a telephone pole.
The tripod and head are constructed of machined aluminum, high-quality ABS plastic, and corrosion-resistant steel. The durable TPE rubber grip rings ensure a high degree of friction when the legs are wrapped around an object – as well as a solid grip for when you're shooting handheld with the camera attached to the GorillaPod Video.
