Unfortunately tripods don’t get much hype in the Vlogging and YouTube creator spaces. However in recent months, there has been a shift. Now Vlogger’s are realising the power that a tripod can bring to their videos.
A traditional tripod is great but has always lacked the versatility and portability that a Vlogger needs. Thankfully there is the Joby GorillaPod which is one third amazing, one third octopus and one third tripod.
At first the GorillaPod looks completely different from any other tripod and this is on purpose. The unique design of this tripod essentially allows it to be attached to almost any surface with its rubberized foot grips and wrappable legs. It also has the capacity of handling 6.6lbs of equipment while gripping to a surface.
One way of describing the legs of this Joby GorillaPod is almost like a vertebra. This allows the legs to be moulded and bent with ease with the upside of never needing a chiropractor. In fact the technology in this tripod is quite impressive. It has German TPE joins and rubberised grips which allows for ultimate flex and strength.
So Why Do Vloggers Need a Joby GorillaPod?
As a Vlogger you almost always have a camera in hand or having it attached to a another object for that perfect shot. There is such high demand from a tripod that most Vloggers usually go without, as there is no product that suits their needs.
However thanks to Vloggers like Casey Neistat & FunForLouis, they have made the Joby GorrilaPod part of their every day carry. Most notably Casey Neistat who set the ball rolling with his DSLR/GorillaPod setup which has now become a iconic snapshot of the Casey Neistat Vlogs.
Since Vlogging is a evolving art that is taking place as we speak, new tools and methods are arising almost monthly. This allows Vlogger’s to concentrate more on creating and less time worrying about limitations. As Vlogging is evolving its becoming apparent that having a universal tripod is cessential.
In a Vloggers eye, a universal tripod is one that can handle almost any task from a studio environment to a long hike and everything in between. Because of the light weight and unique design of the Joby GorillaPod, it has become a staple part of the Vloggers arsenal.
