Joby GorillaPod SLR -Zoom and ball head
Ready to hold your camera and capture the family
GorillaPods are known for their versatility, with articulated legs that are able wrap around almost any object and hold your camera steady. This is the second-strongest ’pod from Gorillapod’s range and is able to hold an impressive 3kg, so it can easily support a D5300 and kit lens when standing on a table or wrapped around a Christmas tree. The legs feature rubberised bands on each of the flexible joints, enabling a surprisingly firm grasp.
A good-quality ball head is included, and although there’s no friction adjustment, for a ’pod of this size it’s nicely made and works well. It even features a quick release plate and level at the back, so whatever the surface you attach the pod to, you should be able to get a level shot.
You can use this to fix your Nikon above the
crowds at parties!
