|Joby Ballhead For Gorillapod SLR-Zoom|
|General Usage and Thoughts|
Today we're taking a look at a bit of a different product here at BCCHardware. Usually, we work more with computer and consumer electronics, but we are heading down the road with our SLR today and looking at the Joby Ballhead. A ballhead is an attachment that interfaces between your camera and your tripod, giving you greater flexibility for holding your camera at any angle you choose and keeping it stable. The Joby Ballhead is designed to work with their SLR-Zoom Gorillapod, but will work with many other tripods.
