Like the original, this Joby GorillaPod Magnetic is an ultra-versatile mini-tripod that can be used with lightweight compact cameras. Its three multi-segmented flexible legs can be formed to grip almost any protrusion, be it a branch, doorknob, rock, or uneven surface. Each of the joints can bend and rotate 360° to wrap around objects. The bottom rubber segment on the legs are larger to allow it to be used as a traditional tripod. A mini quick release system allows for fast set-up and removal. This model adds magnetic feet to its bag of tricks so if it seems like your GorillaPod is defying gravity - it is!
