Trustedreviews.com har anmeldt Joby Gorillapod, en “tripod” der efterhånden fås under utallige navne, takket være kineserne. Ingen kan dog matche Joby’s egen kvalitet, og heldgvis for dette, da prisen på en org. Joby Gorillapod er noget anderledes end kina-producenternes priser.
Trustedreviews.com skriver bl.a.:
tripod is an essential accessory for anyone who cares about their photography. It’s the only thing that can totally eliminate camera shake, even on very long exposures, and as I’ve noted before the action of setting up a camera and tripod has the effect of forcing you to think about your shot more, which usually results in better pictures. Unfortunately good quality tripods also tend to be heavy, and even expensive lightweight carbon fibre tripods are somewhat unwieldy to carry about, especially if you’re travelling light.
One excellent alternative to a full-size tripod is the ingenious Joby Gorillapod, a strange-looking but amazingly effective flexible tripod which can support your camera in virtually any position by clinging to available objects such as furniture, tree branches, car wing mirrors and so on. It can also stand on its own legs like a conventional tripod.
