JOBY GorillaPod Flexible Tripod
If you’re like me, you love the stability a tripod offers, but it’s a hassle using one. That’s why I’ve mostly used monopods the past few years. The other day I heard about the JOBY GorillaPod Flexible Tripod, and thought it would be fun to review it.
Tripods are essential in low light to assure your shots are correctly exposed and in focus. The JOBY GorillaPod is extra awesome because it has wrappable legs. Have you ever considered wrapping the legs of a tripod around a tree to get the perfect shot? Bet you haven’t? This lightweight tripod is convenient for everyday lifestyle shots to post on social media, for vlogging, and for professional portraiture. Apparently, many YouTubers love this tripod.
