The Joby GorillaPod 5K Video PRO includes a fluid video head that together with the multi-function GorillaPod mini tripod supports up to 8.8 lb payloads. It allows you to mount a wide variety of camera setups with the convenience of the GorillaPod's articulating capabilities.
The fluid head features a pan bar, a quick release camera plate, bubble level, and multiple points of adjustment. An articulating extension arm, similar to one of the legs of the GorillaPod, is additionally included and attaches into a 1/4"-20 accessory mounting thread on the fluid head. The arm allows you to attach lights, mics, and other accessories to complement your camera and allow for a more complete setup. A removable mount for the optional Joby Impulse Bluetooth Remote is also included, providing the starting point for remote operation, which is an ideal addition to the GorillaPod because of this mini tripod's ability to wrap around tree branches and various other objects in remote, tight spaces.
How does this compact GorillaPod 5K Video PRO support 8.8 lb? The GorillaPod legs are designed to support the weight. Another of the conveniences of the 5K Video PRO is that the legs are independently adjustable and can be set to compensate for uneven ground. The bubble level on the fluid head will help balance everything out. And yet another convenience is that the entire rig folds into a flat-like form that can be fit into most carry bags/cases.
The included fluid head attaches to a 1/4"-20 screw on top of the GorillaPod. Alternative to the fluid head, various other gear and accessories can be attached on top, including smartphone mounts, action cameras, teleprompters, and so on.
