Must Have: Gorillapod

April 9, 2013 by


The Gorillapod. It’s as crazy looking as its name sounds!

It’s a tripod, with 3 bendy, sticky legs that allow you to prop your camera almost anywhere.

Rest it on the front of your bike and capture you and your partner riding tandem down the coast. Wrap it around your oar while canoeing the Grand Canyon. Hang it upside down from the monkey bars and video tape your kids monkeying around.

The original Gorillapod is perfect for point and shoot cameras weighing 11.5oz or less. If you have a compact system camera, try the Hybrid, or if you have a DSLR, try the SLR Zoom.

They’re smaller and more light weight than a standard tripod. Their flexibility makes them easy to pack along; you can strap it to your purse or backpack for easy access. It’s like bringing a professional photographer along, in your back pocket.

After you get one for yourself, get some for your friends and family. It makes for a great stocking stuffer or unique gift. They come in 7 different colors to match your camera, and your personality.

The Gorillapods start at $19.95 for the original and can be purchased  from the Joby website.
