Objects of Desire: Joby Ballhead for Gorillapod SLR-Zoom

Now the company's come out with a ballhead that attaches to its (slightly) smaller Gorillapod SLR-Zoom tripod and lets you tilt and rotate your digital SLR into just the position you want it.
The light and compact ballhead fits easily onto the SLR-Zoom via universal 1/4-inch tripod screw which means it can also be used with many other tripods. The head has a bubble level quick release clip that you can keep locked onto the bottom of your DSLR for quick installation or removal. Meanwhile, the bubble level helps you keep your shots straight, while the head provides 360-degree panning and up to 90-degree tilt. Like the SLR-Zoom tripod itself, the ballhead can support up to 6.5 pounds of gear.
If you're a fan of Gorillapods but have always yearned for just a little more control on how you can position your camera, Joby's new ballhead is a no-brainer.
