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).

How to Use

Step 1: Attach GorillaPod or Ballhead Quick-Release Plate*
Insert Alt Text here

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 4: Secure on Vertical Poles
Insert Alt Text here

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 2: Stabilise Left and Right Sides with Two Legs
Insert Alt Text here

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 5: Make Fine Tune Adjustments Using the Ballhead*
Insert Alt Text here

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 3: Prevent Camera from Moving Forwards or Backwards
Insert Alt Text here

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
Insert Alt Text here

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.

*When using with optional Ballhead accessory - available separately

5.0 out of 5 stars You need one in your camera bag ! 26 Sep 2008
Style Name:SLR-Zoom Tripod|Verified Purchase
I purchased this for my Canon Eos 450, and it's great. Easy to set up and use, and very portable. I went on to the website for the tripod to read some more details about it before purchasing it.

The manufacturer's website shows the different variations that this comes in. I would definitely recommend the SLR Zoom version if you have a SLR. As I am new to photography but have amassed a number of lenses already including a zoom lens, and due the weight limitations of the different tripods, I would recommend the SLR Zoom to future-proof your camera to some extent.

I have used the tripod with the Canon camera attached to a 300mm zoom lens and it works well.

It is sturdy and very portable and flexible.

Style Name:SLR-Zoom Tripod
It really does work! I've had mine wrapped around the banisters, camera hanging over the side of the stairs, and it was tight and secure.

The Gorillapod comes with a screw adapter giving you the ability to add a tripod head of your choice, which allows for more flexibility.

I'd recommend buying the *SLR-Zoom* version if you have any kind of SLR or even bridge/hybrid camera, even if it doesn't exceed the weight limit of the *SLR* version. Once you add a tripod head, flash, maybe a bigger lens or lens extensions/filters, it adds quite a bit of weight. Better to be on the safe side!

Great gadget to stuff in your bag for when a larger tripod just isn't practical.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joby - Just the job! 2 Jan 2010
Style Name:SLR-Zoom Tripod with Ball Head
Bought specifically to take on holiday... Lightweight and adaptable. Wanted to write this review to say when I opened the pod and ballhead (bought as package) everything moved except the ball and socket part of the ballhead! I searched on the web for others that may have had this problem, and no luck so wrote an email to Joby... they replied, the same day, with a very useful tip... and I quote... "whack it on something hard, don't worry if you break it we will replace it." So I did, and it did the trick I now have a very moveable joint at the top which tightens solid by using the screw. Only one downside I've found with my gorillapod, is its height... this can sometimes be a bit limiting, but it means you've got to be more inventive with your shots!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bulky but often very useful 15 Oct 2007
Style Name:SLR-Zoom Tripod
The Gorillapod devices are alternatives for tripods or supports, only enabling a camera's attachment to and positioning on all sorts of things such as railings and trees as well as more conventional use as a miniature tripod, if considerably more adjustable for uneven terrain. The light grey sections of the legs (including the "feet") are grippy soft synthetic rubber-like material which help to prevent slippage. This definitely helps confidence when relying on it to safely support your thousand-pounds-or-more-worth of equipment! The joints are ball-joints and are quite stiff, which also helps with stability and the "safety" aspect. I do wonder how long the stiffness will last, but they are likely to last quite a while as they "share" movement. The stiffness does provide good stability for long exposures, excepting conditions where vibration may interfere with the way it has been mounted.

As has been mentioned in other reviews, the SLR Zoom version is essential for heavy camera/lens/etc. combinations, but it is rigid enough to support my Nikon D80 with 18-200mm zoom, weighing in at 3.3kg although finely adjusting where the camera is pointing is usually awkward without an additional tripod head. The smallest version (bought for my partner for use with her Coolpix 7900 and found to be very useful indeed) has a "neck" so you can wrap the legs around whatever and then bend it so that the camera is aimed perfectly at the subject. As this version is intended for use with considerably heavier equipment, there is no neck, so either you should bear the subject matter in mind as you apply the legs or use an additional tripod "head" as well. Without the separate adjustment, it can be very difficult to frame the subject.

Style Name:SLR-Zoom Tripod
At first glance gorillapod tripods seem like a genius idea - and in truth it's a smart design, but not without problems.

The basic gorillapod concept is simply a tripod, but with bendy, segmented legs which grip independently. This allows the tripod to be formed into just about any shape the photographer desires, wrapped round objects such as posts, trees or benches, or just placed on a flat surface as you would any tripod.

Originally launched as a mini compact tripod, Joby has produced several larger and more robust sizes, this being the SLR zoom - designed for larger cameras with bigger lens and rated up to 3kg load.

Construction wise, the gorillapod is well built, and feels like it will last. The light plastic finish is, in my opinion, a mistake. It marks quickly and easily and makes the gorillapod look shabby very fast.

I've no reason to doubt it's load capabilities, with it coping with a Nikon D300, with a 70-300 lens in table top use - although I was more nervous using it wrapped round a railing and would not have risked it without the camera strap round my neck as a precaution!

In use, it's a mixed bag. The length of the legs rules out just about anything other than table top use and for anything else, where you want the camera at eye level, you'll be wanting a proper full-size traditional tripod.

As a tabletop tripod it certainly is capable of doing the job. It's up to you what head you buy with the tripod (bear in mind it usually ships without a tripod head), but chances are you'll have some sort of micro, or small, ball head option mounted. This means you have good control of the camera, on top of those bendy legs which can be adjusted into just about any shape you like.

It's a double-edged sword however.

I have a standard tri-pod, but not so good if going on Holiday or walks. The Pod is fab, can even take it in my hold baggage on Ryanair as it weighs next to nothing.
