Description:Flexible, stable, portable and lightweight, this DSLR tripod is everything you have come to expect from a GorillaPod. Adaptable enough for the photographer on the go, strong enough to hold a telephoto lens. Add the optional ballhead for more versatility.
- Capture better perspectives: flexible, wrappable legs allow you to secure professional camera equipment weighing up to 6.6 lbs(3kg) to virtually any surface, expanding the range of shots you are capable of capturing.
- Stability on any surface: over two dozen leg joints with rubberized ring and foot grips allow you to bend and rotate 360° for enhanced stability in difficult terrain.
- Secure firm joints after years of shooting: the only tripod in its class to use durable Japanese medical-grade ABS plastic and German TPE for secure joints that stay firm and grippy.
- Portable design for on-the-go: allows you to easily pack and carry.

How to Use GorillaPod SLR-Zoom
Attach GorillaPod or Ballhead Quick-Release Plate
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.
Stabilize Left and Right Sides with Two Legs
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.
Prevent Camera from Moving Forward or Backward
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 forward or backward. The broader the stance of your GorillaPod on uneven surfaces, the more stable it will be.
Secure on Vertical Poles
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 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.
Make Fine Tune Adjustments Using the Ballhead
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.
Attach a Flash to Your GorillaPod
You can also mount your off-camera flash to GorillaPod SLR-Zoom via our SLR-Zoom Flash Clip. GorillaPod SLR-Zoom provides the extra set of hands you need to light your next photo shoot, indoors or out. Because it can wrap itself almost anywhere and you can easily adjust the light's position, it is certainly more adaptable than a traditional light stand!
Q & A
Which is the best product to use for Nikon D3100? Also, will I always require the Ball Head?
Can this tripod hold the weight of a Canon EOS 70D with the 18-135mm lens and a shotgun microphone
I have a Panasonic GH4 with a 24-70 mm (Tamron) + an adapter and a Rode microphone attached to the camera. Would the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom fit well for my settings? Thank you!
I would like to place a RRS BH-40 Ballhead on the GorillaPod SLR=Zoom, is this possible?
I have a Canon 80D with various lens upto 300mm, i also use the Joby sling and grip with ultra plate. Will the SLR be suitable?, and can the Ballhead X arca-swiss mount fit on this SLR?, or is is better to go for the Focus instead. Thank you.
is the joby tripod waterproof if i would like to use it with my gopro underwater.
What is the exact length of the legs in inches on the Zoom vs. the Focus. I want to use it primarily for vlogging on the go where I am using it to hold the camera in front of me, but facing me.
Hi there - Would just like to ask if the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom can work with my Fuji XT-2 as well as a Go-Pro Camera? Regards
