Gorillapod Focus with Ballhead X Can Carry 5KG Cameras

The Gorillapod has been updated and a new accessory added to the range that allows a camera weighing up to 5KG to be securely attached. The new accessory is called the Ballhead X and allows the photographer to pan, tilt and rotate their camera while keeping a sturdy grip on the camera preventing it from dropping. The Ballhead X is compatible with the Gorillapod Focus tripod.

By using an accessory like this it allows you to move your camera to capture all sorts of angles allowing for some decent long exposure shots to be captured.

The Ballhead X costs £69.95 in the UK. Unfortunately the Ballhead X isn’t compatible with the newly announced magnetic version of the tripod.
