Gorillapods put your gear just where you want it

We love to show you the kind of gear that we think is a must have in some part of your life.
Packed into our camera bag, there is always at least 1 Joby Gorillapod.
Why?
When we need an extra hand to hold the speedlight, or we want to be in the video too, or the tripod just won’t go there.
Or we want to watch our iPhone on the plane and not hold it the whole time.
Last year, at a conference in Cannes, we were trying to make on the spot videos using a Canon 780is. It was all well and good when we were able to convince a friend to hold the camera.
But the one time we had no one, and had left our Gorillapod in the hotel room, 2 people offered us their Gorillapod to use.
And we did. Just amazed that other folks had them in their backpacks. Random
Small, versatile, inexpensive, and apparently global.

Ok, here is a Joby company representative, Jenny from Joby, walking you through the whole line up.

You may have read a previous review of ours.

And there are a lot of imitators out now, of course. Don’t go there. This Joby stuff is the real deal.
At the last PMA show, we saw a company that had copied them right down to the font and color of the logo on the packaging.
Not the same product though.
Look, they are reasonably priced, and will last you a very long time.
As all good equipment should.
