Breaking down the iPhone Timelapse

By | Frame X Frame, Gorillacam | No Comments

Photographer Dhrumil S. Desai breaks down the art of iPhone timelapse videography on his blog Desigraph. He shares all his tips and tricks for how to maximize your iPhone and capture the best timelapse video in his post A Day at the Library. One great tip … set your phone to airplane mode so text messages, emails and calls won’t interrupt your video-making. Read the rest of the very thorough article on his blog.

Here is Dhrumil’s timelapse video of two public libraries made using JOBY’s GorillaCam App.  With our new Frame X Frame App, you’re able to eliminate the iMovie step of Dhrumil’s process and jump straight from a string of photos to a final video!

Happy timelapsing!

Friday Finds: Gorillacam – now appearing in books, Medieval towns and Grocery Store Face Plants

By | Friday Find, Gorillacam, Gorillamobile, Photography | No Comments

Happy Friday!

We were pleased to find out this week, that our enormously popular iPhone app, Gorillacam,  has been featured in not just one, but two different books.  How to Create iPhone  Photos by Allan Hoffman and iPhone Obsessed by Dan Marcolina both show off the Gorillacam app but the latter also features the lovely GorillaMobile for iPhone 4.

This beautiful film about Medieval Walls in Ferrara Italy by Giorgio Fochesato is shot in black and white and is an eerily beautiful vision of a UNESCO Heritage site.

The GorillaMobile Yogi won some new fans this week, due to it’s playful adaptability.  In iLounge, the “highly recommended” Yogi, was praised  for being “as close to truly great as any such accessory has come for the first-generation iPad.”  On the other side of the pond both GorillaMobile Yogi and GorillaMobile Ori were reviewed by CNET.

And to leave on a humorous note…and how I felt at times this week:

Hello Creactives!

Friday is here, and the sun has finally appeared. We are literally wearing wool and suede here, in the not-so-summery San Francisco August.

Parkour!

While this theoretically could get a little repetitive there is something so ninja-cool about this video of swinging through windows. Captured with a Gorillapod Magnetic, it comes complete with post-activity grunts.

Given that downloads are disabled for these Gorillacam photos, I decided it best not to post on the blog. So, you’ll just have to see this priceless expression the old fashion way.

A Dabbling of Press

Scary that Autoblog seems to think that we are already in the “end-of-summer.” This guide helps prepare you for the ultimate summer road trip. Of course, hands-free, emergency-ready, Gorillatorch Flare is a must.

And why we are a little worried that it may go to its head, the Gorillatorch Flare was given the close to perfect rating of 9.5 our 10 on the I4U website.

Friday Finds – Putting Together a Bed Time-Lapse, Best Gift for Tech Moms, Dreaming of Evenings in Mexico

Happy Friday Creactives!

Bed Making Gorillamobile and Gorillacam Style

Ahh, the joys of constructing – Ikea style. This time-lapse video taken with a Gorillamobile and Gorillacam is a study in what putting together an Ikea bed is supposed to be like. For the most part everything goes smoothly, he doesn’t spend hours the way I do hunting for tools which I happen to be sitting on.  Nevertheless the result is pretty entertaining, especially the headless wife inspecting the work at the end. Added bonus, the background music is sure to make you start doing a little dance at your desk…It’s tricky!

Best Gift for Tech Moms

To celebrate Mother’s Day WPIX, a local news affiliate  in New York, welcomed Rebecca Dogin, the Executive Editor from thenest.com, to suggest great last minute gifts for moms. The Gorillapod Magnetic with its adorable wrapping legs and magnetic feet was selected as the Best Gift for Tech Moms. Our little guy was so embarrassed by the attention that  its feet turned red, but I think we’ll all get over it.

Playing it Oh-So-Cool

What do you Joby Gorillapods and George Clooney have in common? Other than being both so ruggedly handsome, of course. Apparently we are both hip enough to appear in the Weekender Version of Urban Daddy.

Pretty Pretty Time-lapse Sky

@andyhadfield makes me jealous with this perfect lapis blue evening sky with the help of a Gorillapod.

Hello Creactives!

How Many Joby Employees Does it Take to Move  a Bookcase?

Here at Joby we continue to move into our new space. Last week, we took on what seemed to be an easy task of moving a bookcase…apparently that was a little deceptive.

Gorillapod Magnetic Does the Rounds

Gorillapod magnetic flitted its way across the internet this week…ooh magnets! Of particular interest:

Engadget test drives the Gorillapod Magnetic on a golf club and discovers that hanging cameras in all directions is fun.

Flickr Gorillapod Love Favorite Photo of the Week

This great image by Jez Page in the Gorillapod Love flickr pool caught my attention. I love the hint of the Ferris wheel behind the beautiful building, a little bit of modernity poking into the photograph.
