Tripod to Try

We’re not saying the Gorillapod will turn you into the next Ansel Adams, but this clever, flexible tripod will definitely change the way you take pictures.Thanks to its super grippy feet and multi-jointed legs that bend and rotate, the Gorillapod lets you place your camera just about anywhere—so you’ll never miss that perfect shot. Perch it on a jagged rock, wrap it around a tree branch, or set it on the roof of your minivan. (No need to fear: the Gorillapod’s unique lock ring always keeps your camera safely attached.) Like a traditional tripod, the Gorillapod will steady your camera under low-light conditions (think professional-looking candlelit portraits and gorgeous sunset photos) and assist you in snapping self-timed solo or group portraits (no more begging strangers to take your picture on vacation). But, this gadget is also unbelievably light. So you can toss it in your favorite book bag or the pocket of your lucky cargo pants at a moment’s notice and head off to photographic adventures with minimum fuss. Be sure to choose the Gorillapod that’s best for your camera. The Original Gorillapod is ideal for point-and-shoot compact digital cameras weighing up to 325g (11.5oz). The Gorillapod Magnet lets you attach your GorillaPod to any magnetic surface! This product was introduced to us by Grommet visitor Claire W. If you’ve got a great gadget we should know about, tell us here. Also check out the Gorillatorch; a flexible, magnetic flashlight that leaves your hands free. It uses the same patented legs to give you flexibility when you really need it.

    Gorillapods serve all the functions of traditional camera tripods – steadying your camera under low-light conditions, taking timed group shots, etc. – but, they are the only tripod malleable enough to provide you with the perfect shot while wrapped around a tree branch, hanging from a pole, or perched on a jagged rock. The possibilities are endless!

    The Original Gorillapod is for compact digital cameras weighing up to 11.5 ounces. The GoGo, is an Original Gorillapod that comes with additional adhesive clips for attaching other mini-electronic devices (iPhones, DVD players, GPS) for hands-free viewing/listening. The Gorillapod SLR supports digital and video cameras up to 1.75 pounds. The SLR-Zoom has a 6.6 pound weight capacity for larger SLR cameras and the Gorillapod Focus supports a whopping 11 pounds of camera gear.

    Each Gorillapod is made up of over two dozen fully articulating ball-and-socket joints -- you can literally bend them into hundreds of shapes, and they'll always capture the perfect picture.

    I look forward to reading your comments and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Jesse, I know what you mean. My four year old grandson plays with our gorillapod like a "gumby" before and after its use for the family photo. Other (older) family members have been known to take a turn at playing with it too...

    These are fabulous! I bought one for my teenage son to go along with his Flip video camera and his digital camera. The Gorillapod works fantastic for both of them and it allows him to have either camera wherever he needs them to be. They have other brands that are in this style, but they do not work as well as the Gorillapod.

    I've never owned a Gorillapod before, but I've seen Gorillapod displays at two different retail stores, and both of them were broken. You'd think that the store managers would have the sense to put new ones out!

    Also, when I tried one out on one of the tree branch displays provided, I couldn't really get it to hold in the position that I wanted - it was very awkward. The legs were too short to wrap around the branches in a secure way while still providing space for the camera. I can imagine that it might work on an obvious place such as a fence railing, but I'm not so sure that it really has the versatility that it claims. Seems gimmicky to me. Why don't the people in your video demonstrate it instead of just describe it and flex the legs in their hands?

    Is this supposed to be an infomercial or an objective review? It seems like the former to me.

    Tony, thank you for your comments. We do carefully select the products that we feature at Daily Grommet so that we can stand behind them. We use the Gorillapod in the Daily Grommet offices and have not had any breakage.

    This was an earlier video review when most were done in-studio. We have recently done a review of the Gorillatorch - a flexible, magnetic flashlight that leaves your hands free. It uses the same patented ball-and-socket construction for flexible, wrappable legs. You can see in this review how the legs wrap around objects.

    Again, thanks for stopping by!

    Tony, I work the Gorillapod extensively at Daily Grommet and haven’t broken one yet. I've attached it to doorknobs, handles, lighting, fences, tree branches, stool backs and more. I once wrapped the legs between a partially opened window lever to keep the sun behind me while shooting field video in my bathroom for the Daily Grommet story about Colormark. I'm willing to lend you one of ours to try. Your skepticism would provide and interesting platform for testing and honest feedback. Contact me if you're interested!

    We'd like to congratulate Joby for having their Gorillapod listed as one of the top gift items as ranked by the New York Times' Frugal Traveler who wants to avoid giving — or receiving — "anything that, while momentarily amusing, fails to provide a useful function, or on the other hand is functional but charmless. And, needless to say, it shouldn’t be expensive." The Gorillapod fit the bill!

    If I buy one for the iPhone 3G will I be able to use it for an iPhone 4, or a Flip?

    It seems that I need to buy a totally different model. Can I just attach a different coupling to do that. - I'm confused
