How to Shoot Photos of Fireworks with Your iPhone

By | Gorillamobile, Gorillapod, iPhone, Photography, time-lapse photography | 2 Comments

With Independence Day upon us, I thought it only proper to give a quick tutorial about the how to best capture the fireworks displays that will be shooting up all over the USA. You don’t want to miss the shot because you’re fumbling with your iPhone, right?

Fire at Night

So here we go …

1. Don’t forget a tripod!!! Bust out your iPhone + GorillaMobile or GorillaPod and position it appropriately to capture the action. Watch out for trees, buildings and other spectators who might block your shot.

2.  Turn off the flash! 

3. Use out our free camera app Frame X Frame.  Choose the Time Lapse setting. We’d set it to take 1000 shots at 2 second intervals to capture the most of the show as possible. Set yourself up for success, which means lots and lots of shots. Sit back, enjoy the show and let Frame X Frame do all the work for you!

4. Use a self-timer (also a feature on Frame X Frame) to avoid camera shake when you hit the shutter button.

5. Test out long exposures. An app like SlowShutter will do the trick.

Just launched! miniSkates for GorillaPod SLR Zoom by Cinetics

By | Friends of Joby, Gorillapod, iPhone, Photography | 2 Comments

Our friends at Cinetics —the creators of CineSkates and CineSquid—have launched another great video product! Their miniSkates attach to our GorillaPod SLR Zoom and are designed for compact cameras and camera phones. Check out the new miniSkates in action in this demo video!

 

miniSkates Video Dolly from Cinetics on Vimeo.

miniSkates, a smaller version CineSkates, are a set of wheels that attach to the GorillaPod SLR-Zoom tripod to create a portable and versatile dolly system. miniSkates work with cameras up to 1.5 pounds, which includes compact cameras, smart phones, and point of view cameras like GoPro and Contour.

Justin Jensen, the founder of Cinetics, says that their goal is to get your cinematic ideas in motion. These new products are designed to allow anyone to create high-quality moving video with the cameras that are in their pockets already. We think that is rad!
