The Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom is a tripod designed to support heavy SLR cameras as well as video recorders and professional tripod heads up to 3kg or 6.5lbs. Sturdy plastic 360° swivels allow for unlimited shaping and mounting in unusual locations and surfaces. Unlike the smaller Gorillapod SLR, this one does not come with a built-in bubble level in the mounting clip for exacting level adjustments on the fly. Instead you can purchase the Joby SLR-Zoom Ballhead attachment which has one built inside and also uses a ball joint mount for a greater range of motion on top of the tripod. The standard mounting clip has a permanent 1/4" universal screw but also comes with a 3/8" adapter screw for using professional tripod mounts as well. The SLR-Zoom is the same length as the original SLR, but with chunkier joints bringing the overall tripod weight up to 241g from 165g and more than tripling the maximum carrying capacity.
