The Gorillapod 3K Kit for DSLR?

Joby Gorillapod has been an established brand for a couple of years. Gorillapods are sturdy and versatile, but pricey as well. Is it still a good idea to buy a Gorillapod for your DSLR right now?

I’ve been using Gorillapods since a couple of years and been disappointed once: I bought the Gorillapod Hybrid for my DSLR, but that didn’t work, since it couldn’t carry the weight of the camera. I then switched to the SLR-Zoom and am still very happy with it. However, if you want to use a bigger lens or a bigger camera with large battery, external monitor or microphone, you’ll need the big guns. That’s where the 3K Kit comes in.

 

 

PROS

  • The 3K Kit has a ballhead, which you can take off, but it’s a must have on a Gorillapod
  • The basics of the Gorillapod: it’s very sturdy
  • The versatility makes this Gorillapod so special
  • Black and red colour
  • There’s a level indicator

CONS

  • A Gorillapod is pricey, but a good investment
  • You’ll need a coin to tighten the clip on the DSLR

VERDICT

If you don’t own a Gorillapod in you accessories collection yet, go out and buy one. This tripod is usable in every situation. You can strap it around a tree, put it in the sand or use it as a vlogging rig. It’s pricey, but well worth the investment! You can find the 3K kit here.
