Still looking for a versatile tripod for all your shooting projects? Now that the JOBY TelePod line has been completed, you might want to check out which telescoping tripod will most likely fit your needs. Joining the existing and well-known GripTight PRO TelePod are three new additions designed for today’s generation of storytellers and content creators: the TelePod Mobile, TelePod 325, and TelePod PRO Kit.
The TelePod series promises to meet the needs of vloggers, photographers, and videographers by providing maximum versatility as a handgrip, monopod, elevated stand, or tripod. Since the telescoping tripod series is comprised of dedicated solutions for both cameras and mobile devices, it may well be worth checking out for content creators who use multiple devices for their projects.
The TelePod Solutions for mobile phones is comprised of the TelePod Mobile, an all-in-one selfie stick tripod that securely holds smartphones or small 360 cameras using the included GripTight ONE mount; and the GripTight PRO TelePod, the most recent addition to the company’s pro-content creation tools (ideal for smartphones, mirrorless, 360 and action cameras, or video light) which easily adjusts to landscape or portrait mode.
As for the TelePod Solutions for cameras, there’s the TelePod PRO Kit, which is the customized version of the original GripTight PRO TelePod. It’s equipped with the JOBY BallHead 1K that enables 360 degree panning and 90 degrees tilt. The other is the handheld tripod/vlogging stick TelePod 325, which is a more compact version of the TelePod PRO.
All four models have the ability to work in the four modes mentioned above as described by JOBY below:
Hand Grip: Close legs and hold
Extended Grip: Close legs and extend mount to create selfie stick for overhead or 360 shots
Elevated Tripod: Extend mount and legs for elevated camera/360 stand
Tabletop Tripod: Expand legs and retract mount for a compact tripod stand
The TelePod series is also compatible with a variety of JOBY mounts, and are built with lightweight, high strength glass-filled composite, ABS plastic, anodized aluminum, stainless steel and TPE. All four models will be available by early October via JOBY website and select authorized dealers.
