Gear Review: GorillaPod Tripod


Expand your photography with a flexible tripod

My favorite camera accessory is my GorillaPod. A tripod is essential for capturing low light shots, and this particular one is small and light enough to stow in my backpack. However, the killer feature is the bendy legs which securely grip surfaces like light posts, trees and moving bikes, allowing you to get unique and special shots that might be inaccessible otherwise. For example, in this tricky shot, I’ve attached my camera and tripod to the railing on a canal.

It’s also great for getting group (or couple!) shots using the timing function, especially when there aren’t bystanders who can take your photo. Awwwwwww!

  1. I LOVE my Gorilla Pod! Such an amazing little gadget. I found out about them when I did a photography workshop and went out and bought one straight away! Its been a godsend while traveling to capture those shots you would normally need a tripod for!

  2. I do not know why one of my FB updates shows in the comments here below. I did not do anything?
    Anyhow the GorillaPod looks like a great camera, I do not have one but would surely consider it when I need a new one. Beautiful photos.

  3. I’m glad you like your gorillapod so much! we have been toying with getting one, but we can’t seem to find one anywhere in Taiwan, meaning we’ll have to pay a ton in shipping. maybe next time we’re home we’ll have to pick one up!

      Casey – I thought it would be a pain to haul around, but it’s really light and I don’t regret the purchase at all! Hope you are having fun in Taiwan 🙂
