Heads up, vloggers, content creators, and YouTube stars! JOBY, the makers of the original GorillaPod flexible tripod, introduced its new GorillaPod Mobile Rig today to help you create pro-grade videos with your smartphone. This new tripod accessory offers the same flexibility and versatility of the original GorillaPod, with the added functionality of mounting additional devices for your movie-making needs.
Built on the ball and socket design of the GorillaPod, the new GorillaPod Mobile Rig has the flexible tripod legs we’re familiar with, which can be used as a handle, a standard tripod, or wrapped around poles and frames. It also features a secure mount for any smartphone, plus two 6-socket arms for attaching the standard ¼”-20 tripod connections or cold shoe mounts. The smartphone mount itself has an additional cold shoe mount and can be tilted to landscape or portrait orientation. With this setup, you can use up to three accessory devices such as microphones, lights, and even a GoPro camera to make your mobile movies.
With this flexibility and versatility, creating videos for various platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Periscope, and YouTube becomes easy and handy. In an era where everyone from content creators, vloggers, and journalists are looking for more streamlined and convenient ways to make high-quality mobile videos, this accessory promises to be an essential tool.
“Our community of JOBY makers live in the moment. They are constantly looking for the next content creation opportunity and need tools that are as unique and flexible as they are,” said Tim Grimmer, Vice President of Brand and Product for JOBY, Vitec Imaging Solutions. “With our new GorillaPod Mobile Rig, we’re helping vloggers and mobile video content producers truly get a grip on the creative capabilities of their smartphones and action cameras.”
