Joby GorillaPod Tripod
Ballhead X (pictured) available separately
GorillaPod SLR-Zoom for SLR Cameras
The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom flexible tripod lets you position your SLR with zoom lens almost anywhere to help you capture the perfect shot. The flexible joints of GorillaPod SLE-Zoom can bend and rotate 360°, offering numerous positioning possibilities. Wrap it around posts, railings, even sides of rocks, to form a stable anchor for those crisp action shots.
The GorillaPod SLR-Zoom is designed for SLRs with zoom lenses, camcorders or external flashes weighing up to 3 kg. Add the optional Joby Ballhead with quick-release clip and bubble level for more versatility (available separately). You can set up quickly, fine tune and adjust shots with 360° pan and 90° tilt, and switch easily between portrait and landscape orientations.
Strong and lightweight
Sturdy ABS plastic construction is dependable and strong. The tripod fits easily in your camera bag without adding noticeable weight - it weights just 0.19 kg, yet it is durable enough to withstand years of use.
Flexible, wrappable legs
With over two dozen leg joints, that bend and rotate 360°, you can secure your gear to almost any surface, indoors or out.
Rubberised ring and foot grips
Durable TPE rubber grip rings and foot grips provide enhanced stability on difficult, uneven terrain and grip securely when wrapping around branches or poles.

How to Use
Step 1: Attach GorillaPod or Ballhead Quick-Release Plate*
Start screwing the tripod or quick-release plate into the bottom of your camera. Use a coin to securely tighten down the screw. Make sure one GorillaPod leg or the quick release plate is in line with your camera lens for fast and easy setup.
Step 2: Secure on Vertical Poles
Wrap one leg around the front of the pole, wrap the second leg around the back of the pole, and position the third leg in an arc directly below the lens with the foot of the tripod perpendicular to the pole. This will counterbalance the weight of your camera. Take care to make sure your lens is supported when wrapping your GorillaPod around trees and poles.
Step 3: Stabilise Left and Right Sides with Two Legs
Secure one leg to the left of your camera, and then secure one leg to the right of your camera. By positioning one leg to the left and one to the right, you prevent the camera from slipping sideways. The broader the stance of your GorillaPod SLR-Zoom, the sturdier it will be.
Step 4: Make Fine Tune Adjustments Using the Ballhead*
Once the GorillaPod legs are secure, loosen the knob on the SLR-Zoom Ballhead. Fine-tune the position of your camera to perfectly frame your subject with one hand supporting your camera and one hand on the adjustment knob. Be sure to glance at the bubble level to make sure your shot is level. Once the correct position is achieved, tighten the adjustment knob to secure your DSLR.
Step 5: Prevent Camera from Moving Forwards or Backwards
The third tripod leg should be used to prevent the camera from slipping forwards or backwards due to the weight of your camera and camera lens. By positioning one leg directly underneath your lens, you prevent your camera from drooping, slipping or sliding forwards or backwards. The broader the stance of your GorillaPod on uneven surfaces, the more stable it will be.
Step 6: Attach a Flash to Your GorillaPod
You can also mount your off-camera flash to GorillaPod SLR-Zoom via the SLR-Zoom Flash Clip. GorillaPod SLR-Zoom provides the extra set of hands you need to light your next photo shoot, indoors or out. It can wrap itself almost anywhere and you can easily adjust the light's position.
