Standard

JOB-GP-FLXTRI-SLRZBH-O_IMG02_500

In 2006,  Joby launched the Gorillapod tripod after recognising a consumer need for new and creative ways to capture photos.

Fast forward ten years and the Gorillapod continues to be one of the most popular tripods for photo enthusiasts around the world.

Here’s 5 reasons why you need to get yourself a Gorillapod:

Different angles and new perspectives

The Gorillapod’s trademark wraparound legs are definitely the product’s unique selling point and the main reason why people continue to buy it today. Flexible wraparound legs mean that the Gorillapod can be easily wrapped around poles, fences and trees, allowing you, the photographer to capture high quality photos from a variety of angles and perspectives.

Convenience

Joby’s Gorillapods are incredibly lightweight, and they also come in a range of models and sizes so you’re guaranteed to find one that fits your smartphone and your camera. Choose from the Joby Gorillapod Action Tripod, Joby Gorillapod GPod Mini Magnetic, Joby Gorillapod SLR Zoom, Joby Griptight Gorillapod Video, Joby Griptight Gorillapod Magnetic and more…

Compact Size

Unlike standard photo tripods that tend to be large and bulky, the Joby Gorillapod tripod is both small and compact, allowing it to be easily carried around in a bag a suitcase. This is ideal for photographers who love to travel or are always on the go!

Stability

What it lacks in size, it makes up for in design.  Every one of Joby’s Gorillapods features unique rubber grips at the base. These have been specifically designed to ensure that your phone or camera stay firmly in place throughout use.

Competitive Price

Another great thing about Joby’s Gorillapods is their competitive pricing which means that you don’t have to worry about being strapped for cash. Prices on our website range from €14.99-€65.99 so you’re bound to find something to suit your budget. And the money that you do save, why not put it towards a new camera?
