A sturdy, top of the range Gorillapod - holds up to 5KG
Just one of the exciting new additions to the handy and exceedingly popular Joby Gorillapod range is this Gorillapod 5K kit. This new high-acheiving kit features a pro-grade ballhead which can hold 5kg of weight, offers panning of 360 degrees and can tilt 90 degrees, making it ideal for changing between landscape and portrait orientation quickly and efficiently, and making minute adjustments to composition. This removable ballhead has a top-tier arca-swiss compatible quick release plate, which can permanently stay attached to your camera for lightning fast setup speeds. A numbered scale on the base lets you accurately perform panoramas, a dedicated knob locks the pan feature so you can focus on only adjusting tilt, while a locking adjustment knob ensures everything is set in stone for the utmost sturdiness. The standard tripod fitting allows this ballhead to be utilised not just on the included Gorillapod legs, but on any standard tripod.
The flexible legs that are a fixture of the Gorillapod name are in full force with the Gorillapod 5K, enabling you to wrap around poles and any number of found devices, stand firm on a multitude of surfaces and hold firm in your hand for smooth video performance. The legs are covered with rubber grips for a tighter hold, while the bottom of the 3 flexible legs are rubberised feet which help you to find a steady footing on your surface, to lower the risks of the tripod tipping over. Constructed from world class machined aluminum these legs can support the most advanced members of your kit, such as your Digital SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, flashes, other lighting equipment and more. Despite all of this functionality the Gorillapod 5K is still a relatively compact accessory, easily making itself at home in your bag as you travel, so you will always be ready to fire when that once in a lifetime moment happens along.
