Thread: Gorillapod SLR Zoom

  1. #1

    Default Gorillapod SLR Zoom

    Hey everyone,

    I came across this Jody Gorillapod SLR Zoom and I really feel like getting one. I have a Canon EOS 400D and a Sony HDR SR12E.

    Now it states that it is compatible with a Canon EOS 400D, but I don't know if it will also work with a Sony HDR SR12E.

    Does anyone know if it works? I mailed Jody and they said I had to check it out myself..

    I don't think the screw whole is the same size (where it goes in).

    Yep, I'm sure it will. But - why dont you have a look at the screw holes on both your cameras? That would be the best bet.... ??

    I reccomend you dont buy it - looks like a piece of crap.

    I use a small beanbag - this is the support of choice for conveneience and portablility when you dont need a real tirpod.

    Yeah, real tirpods are a pain to lug about.... tripods are too, come to think of it. And you're right, it does look like a piece of crap. Except it wraps around trees, so that's useful.

    I have a gorilla pod for my compact. Found it very useful when out and about. You an attach the camera to about anything and get some real unusual shots. Obviously a tripod is better for stability but the gorilla pod is a very useful lightweight backup.

    We've got one for our compact camera as well, and we don't leave home without it. It's an ace little gadget. It's not a replacement for a tripod, it's a useful little addition to carry around.

    Looks like something from Anne Summers to me.

    Why do you think we don't leave home without it?

    Assuming you've sorted out the screw size issue I'd recommend it. I agree with Mark that it does look like a piece of junk but it's a good strong grip and it's bailed me out a few times when I've been put in a place where there's no space to set up a proper tripod.

    I've a Fuji S9500 which probably wieghs about 6 to 700gms and is sturdy enough. The only quirk it has is you have to set a 2 second or so timer so once you've pressed the shutter it has time to settle.
