Excerpt: Matty Graham reviews this handy camera support £40 The Gorillapod is lightweight, has a quick release plate and can hold up to 800g (the larger SLR Zoom can support 3kg).

Excerpt: Here at Gear Patrol, we really like taking pictures. That’s why you see so much original photography here on the site (Yes, it’s ironic to see a stock photo with this post, but how we gonna take a picture of our camera without our camera?). That, and because we like to rise above the common detritus found strewn about the web. Forgive the digression.
Excerpt: Over the last few weeks, I’ve been using the Gorillapod Original to take macro pictures used on my food blog. Since my compact digital camera doesn’t have image stabilization, the Gorillapod has been fantastic at steadying the picture. It’s also great for taking group shots during a hike. Forget about rotating someone in and out of the shot to take the picture.
Conclusion: Gorillapod Original понравился. Аксессуар недешев, но оказался на удивление продуманным, функциональным и приятным в использовании. «Оригинал» совсем не бесполезная игрушка, что можно подумать, глядя на его изображения. Модель прекрасно справится с фотоаппаратами весом до 350-400 грамм, что делает его полезным спутником большинства компактных цифровых фотоаппаратов.
