Camera Labs – Joby Gorillapod SLR Zoom review
4 Star Review  cameralabs.com - Jan 17, 2008

The first time you wrap the legs around a pole and realise the Gorillapod isn’t going to fall, your approach to photography changes. You end up examining your surroundings for things you could attach the Gorillapod to, and in almost every situation, there’s a nearby tree, fence, railing, rock, or even the back of a chair which could become a willing accomplice. During our time with the Gorillapod SLR Zoom, we used it with a number of hefty DSLRs including the Canon EOS 40D, EOS 5D and Nikon D300, all equipped with fairly heavy lenses, and in each case the Gorillapod SLR Zoom securely supported them. While it may not match a proper tripod for height and ultimate stability, its sheer portability and flexibility means it could end up being used much more often. To find out more, see our Gorillapod SLR Zoom review.

Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom
1.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 23, 2010

The Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom is a tripod designed to support heavy SLR cameras as well as video recorders and professional tripod heads up to 3kg or 6.5lbs. Sturdy plastic 360° swivels allow for unlimited shaping and mounting in unusual locations and surfaces. Unlike the smaller Gorillapod SLR, this one does not come with a built-in bubble level in the mounting clip for exacting level adjustments on the fly. Instead you can purchase the Joby SLR-Zoom Ballhead attachment which has one built inside and also uses a ball joint mount for a greater range of motion on top of the tripod. The standard mounting clip has a permanent 1/4" universal screw but also comes with a 3/8" adapter screw for using professional tripod mounts as well. The SLR-Zoom is the same length as the original SLR, but with chunkier joints bringing the overall tripod weight up to 241g from 165g and more ... PROS: (1) joints are very firm, wont bend without being manipulated on purpose (2) light weight, easy to carry around and travel with ... CONS: (1) if joints are bent too much they will sag (2) difficult to get the tripod to sit straight (3) takes at least 5 to 10 minutes to get it positioned just right (4) screw that attaches to the camera spins freely, requires a screw driver (5) isnt actually stable and rigid unless a camera a few pounds below specifications is used

When the big tripod is too much.
4 Star Review   By bob on Adorama - Feb 6, 2009   

For trips that require some camera support, but not the very heavy tripod. All that's needed is a flat surface, or secure legs around a railing, etc. Amazing gripping power when used in this manner.

a very versatile mini tripod
5 Star Review   By gear on Adorama - Feb 4, 2009   

One thing to consider, before you buy: if you don't get a separate tripod head for the camera you're using, you'll have to mount it directly on the tripod mount screw, which is fixed, not like the other gorillas, i.e. you cannot rotate the camera, tilt it

Great gadget
3 Star Review   By member dm042447 - Sep 4, 2008   

Strengths: It does the job in area where tripod is not allowed. It does hold an XTI + 24 -105 EF lens.

Weakness: Doesn't hold strong enough when taking night picture. Winds and slight slippage will cause your picture unusable when taking picture with slower shutter speed.

I bought this for my SE Asia/Japan trip. Everywhere I went, there were people("tourist) to help me take picture... When I was in Japan and I felt a bit safe to take this baby for some night picture, it fails me. It didnt do the job because of winds and slippage plus slow shutter speed.

ultra configurable and versatile tripod for SLR with zoom lens
4 Star Review   By member robsf23 - Jun 16, 2008   

Strengths: versatile, light, configurable many different ways, strong enough to hold DSLR with zoom lens (up to 6 lbs), rubbery feel has good grip even on smooth surface

Weakness: no quick release plate, bulkiest of the "flexpods"

I have a Nikon D80 DSLR with a 18-200mm zoom lens. So I wanted a "flexpod" that can handle up to 7 lbs. This gorillapod works great and can hold my DSLR with zoom lens easily. I also use it for my compact Casio digicam and also my compact Canon camcorder. I have used this as a regular tripod on the ground or table, wrapped it around a sign post, and a tree branch. You can't do these with a regular tripod. The gorillapod held my camera with no problem. The only thing that I wish it came with is a release plate so I can easily remove the camera on or off instead of twisting off the flexpod. Overall this is great accessory to have. It is a bit bulkier than other mini tripods but it's light enough to bring with you (almost) everywhere.

Strong enough for a 40D
4 Star Review   By member schaefsn - Jun 13, 2008   

Strengths: Sturdy construction. Goes anywhere and grips almost anything.

Weakness: Hard to pack in my gear bag.

I bought this product for a recent cruise that I took in the Carribean. I wanted to be able to have the flexibility to mount my DSLR on various surfaces to get pictures with myself and my wife in them. This product did not disappoint. I was able to wrap the legs around posts, set it on rocks to level the camera and place it almost anywhere. I am also very careful with my electronics and was worried that the Gorilla Pod SLR would not be sturdy enough to balance a heavy (Canon 40D with a zoom lens. I am glad to report that it is. From the moment I removed it from the packaging it was apparent that this product is built strong. I looked at some of the generic models and they are not nearly as sturdy as the gorilla pod. The only thing that gives me pause is that it was not easy for me to hide the gorilla pod in my bag. Because it is so sturdy it is hard to wrap it around in such a way that it fits in my gear bag. To solve this problem I had to clip it to the outside of the bag. If this is my only problem I would say that this is a good thing. I would definitely recommend this product.

Great little tripod
5 Star Review   By member microg - Jun 1, 2008   

Strengths: Flexible, easy to carry.

Weakness: A little bit too short. Missing a bubble level and a ball head. A little expensive.

Amazing! Especially once you feel you can trust it with your expensive digital SLR (Canon digital SLR with 50-250mm zoom). Easily "grips" to poles and fences, very convenient to put on rocks, branches, .... It's the perfect companion to a hiker who wants to take pictures, or a tourist in a city because of its light weight. It's also very stable, once you attach it to something. My only complaints about it are that the legs are a tad too short to grip around most phone poles, or tree trunks (but that would have made it a bit heavier and unwieldy). It also lacks a bubble level, so your pictures are never exactly straight (:-(, and as you often need a way to orient the camera once the tripod is in place, you need to buy a small, light ball head, which adds to the already-hefty price. Despite my small complaints, I'm thrilled with it.

Quite a useful contraption
5 Star Review   By member Luke Spragg - Apr 17, 2008   

Strengths: Grip, finger-like grasp, strong.

Weakness: None.

The little contraption is quite a useful one. I bought this for my older sister to use with her camera. It comes in handy when you want to snap a shot of yourself that doesn't show your arm in. You don't have to worry about finding a level area that will still allow for your head to show as well! I would recommend it to anyone with a big camera who is looking for new, creative ways to snap shots and take pictures.

Crazy but useful tripod
5 Star Review   By member bluejeff - Mar 2, 2008   

Strengths: 1. Flexible for all occasions 2. Solid build 3. Takes more weight (than before)

Weakness: No plate design, takes time to put on/off.

Two years ago, I bought the original gorillapod from Joby and it was great. However, the original one was too thin and could not take weights more than a pound. I had no choice but ended up selling it on ebay. A few years after, Joby now comes up with a new one (this one) that offers better build and better weight capabilities. This SLR-Zoom version takes more than 6 pounds of weight and the grip is two times bigger than before. It works well with my cameras (Canon EOS 5D and EOS 300) with heavy lenses and flashes. Another use of this tripod will be my off camera external remote flashes. I can put my 580/430EX on this tripod and fire off remote flashes easily. Overally, I am really glad that Joby came up a new pod like this and it's very useful.

Very Cool
5 Star Review   By member chanamasala - Nov 13, 2007   

Strengths: Strong enough for my Samsung GX10, grips to poles, grippy feet

Weakness: No ball head, adapter can get lost, no wingnut to get the screw turned

This is a really nifty tripod it can hold my Samsung GX10 with a telephoto lens no sweat if I position everything right. I wish the screw removal thing had a wingnut so that it didn't need a coin to undo. Also a ball pivot head on it would be nice but good luck that ever happening. Otherwise with it's nice pole-wrapping abilities and regular short-tripod functioning, this things is nifty and fun and functional.

Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom
4 Star Review   By member julianpan - Aug 1, 2007   

Strengths: size, light-weight, reliable. I can go anywhere with it in my camera bag.

Weakness: no quick release

Bought this for my Europe trip. It fits the side pocket of my KATA H-14. The weight and size are just right for trips that I can't take my full-size tripod. It feels stable with my Rebel XT and 70-200 IS. The legs won't bend for that setup. It's a nice product. The only drawback is the Zoom version has no quick release like the smaller versions.

Incredibly Cool Tripod
4 Star Review   By member gooru - Jul 5, 2007   

Strengths: Light, compact, versatile, sturdy

Weakness: Adapter screw easily lost, no level

This is exactly what I was looking for: a light, compact tripod that's strong enough to hold onto my Canon 5D and EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens. While this will never replace my full-size Bogen-Manfrotto behemoth, this will work great for lighter, extended traveling. I find I often miss shots or am forced to shoot at ridiculously high ISOs simply because I really hate carrying around a heavy, full-size tripod, so this should solve the problem. Plus, I love how this tripod can go where others can't. You really can do things like wrap it around poles! My only real complaint about this tripod is the 1/4" adapter screw is very easily lost. It's just a tiny hollow screw that goes on top of the 3/8" screw, and there's nowhere to store it on the tripod. I'm certain I'll lose it or get it stuck in a tripod head one day. Additionally, I wish this tripod had a built-in level, but that's more of a feature request than a complaint.
