Joby Gorillapod Focus tripod holds up to 11 pounds of camera in precarious positions

Joby's Gorillapod tripod is great. I've had one for years and it goes with me on every trip. It ably handles my DSLR and smaller camcorders. And it's cheap!

The new Gorillapod "Focus" tripod is not cheap. It's $150. But at 1.1-pounds it's rated to handle up to 11 pounds of gear. That's the size of larger camcorders or DSLRs with professional-sized lenses. And there's a new adapter head that lets you screw on pro tripod mounts.

Apologies if this sounds like marketing copy, but Joby makes a simple, quality product. I expect the same from the Focus.
