GorillaPod tripods are unique! Their multi-jointed legs can be bent in any direction, and they are just as effective straightened out to make a regular mini tripod and they are when bent around a tree trunk or a fence post. If you're looking for the best tripod, you might not necessarily think of these, but at this price you might want to think twice – especially if you're looking for a tripod for travel.

GorillaPods come in all sizes, right down to pocket-sized smartphone tripods, but this one is a biggie, handling DSLRs and mirrorless cameras up to 5kg/11lb in weight. It comes with a ball head as standard, and this features an Arca Swiss style quick release plate, so you can easily attach and remove your camera gear and even swap to another tripod with the same fitting.
