How to Use GorillaPod SLR-Zoom
Attach GorillaPod or Ballhead Quick-Release Plate
Start screwing the tripod or quick-release plate into the bottom of your camera. Use a coin to securely tighten down the screw. Make sure one GorillaPod leg or the quick release plate is in line with your camera lens for fast and easy setup.
Stabilize Left and Right Sides with Two Legs
Secure one leg to the left of your camera, and then secure one leg to the right of your camera. By positioning one leg to the left and one to the right, you prevent the camera from slipping sideways. The broader the stance of your GorillaPod SLR-Zoom, the sturdier it will be.
Prevent Camera from Moving Forward or Backward
The third tripod leg should be used to prevent the camera from slipping forwards or backwards due to the weight of your camera and camera lens. By positioning one leg directly underneath your lens, you prevent your camera from drooping, slipping or sliding forward or backward. The broader the stance of your GorillaPod on uneven surfaces, the more stable it will be.
Secure on Vertical Poles
Wrap one leg around the front of the pole, wrap the second leg around the back of the pole, and position the third leg in an arc directly below the lens with the foot of the tripod perpendicular the pole. This will counterbalance the weight of your camera. Take care to make sure your lens is supported when wrapping your GorillaPod around trees and poles.
Make Fine Tune Adjustments Using the Ballhead
Once the GorillaPod legs are secure, loosen the knob on the SLR-Zoom Ballhead. Fine-tune the position of your camera to perfectly frame your subject with one hand supporting your camera and one hand on the adjustment knob. Be sure to glance at the bubble level to make sure your shot is level. Once the correct position is achieved, tighten the adjustment knob to secure your DSLR.
Attach a Flash to Your GorillaPod
You can also mount your off-camera flash to GorillaPod SLR-Zoom via our SLR-Zoom Flash Clip. GorillaPod SLR-Zoom provides the extra set of hands you need to light your next photo shoot, indoors or out. Because it can wrap itself almost anywhere and you can easily adjust the light's position, it is certainly more adaptable than a traditional light stand!
Spike Feet for Stability on Rough Terrain
When paired with your GorillaPod SLR-Zoom, our spike feet provide an even sturdier anchor on difficult terrain. They are perfect for shooting with a zoom or macro lens, especially in windy conditions or when your GorillaPod SLR-Zoom is placed on soft surfaces like dirt or snow.
