Joby Unveils New GripTight PRO TelePod for Mobile Video Enthusiasts

The Joby Griptight Pro is more or less a monopod for your phone.

One of the fastest growing content mediums right now is video and, in particular, live streams. In order to meet the needs of these budding communities of content creators, JOBY has announced their new GripTight Pro Telepod.

This telescoping tripod is designed to be the perfect tool for Youtubers, Streamers, Vloggers and people looking to produce better video content with their mobile devices. Honestly you can sort of think of this like the merging of a tabletop tripod and a selfie stick. But it’s not nearly as awkward as what you are envisioning in your head right now.

The GripTight Pro Telepod works in four modes: Hand Grip, Extended Grip, Elevated Tripod, and Tabletop Tripod. Each mode is intended for the process of shooting video, be that for regular video content, live streaming, or even 360 degree shots. The phone mount also rotates for easy verticle video formats like Instagram and Periscope.

The JOBY GripTight Pro Telepod joins their other recent announcement, the Gorillapod Mobile Rig, in the company’s latest push to appeal to this developing community of video-focused content creators. It will be available for $99, and if you are interested in picking one up you can find them over on
