GorillaPod 3K Pro leads Joby’s ‘Metal Revolution’

Joby’s famous bendy-legged tripod can wrap itself around branches, posts and other handy bits of nearby scenery, but it’s just as useful as a flexible tripod you can bend and twist to fit any kind of terrain. It’s all achieved with the unique leg design, made up of a line of firm but flexible ball and socket joints which can be bent to any angle and then stay there until you bend them back.

The new GorillaPod 3K Pro steps up to anodised aluminium construction to make the new model more durable, stronger and smoother. It also comes with a new BallHead 3K Pro head, with a separate panning movement and a numbered scale on the base for accurate 360 pans.
