GorillaPod Micro is Getting Some Love

By | New Product Launch, Uncategorized | No Comments

Our new little buddy the GorillaPod Micro has been showered in love since its launch on Wednesday. Our goal was to create a super-versatile, ultra-compact and totally revolutionary tripod design, and it seems that folks agreed that we’ve done it. We couldn’t be happier!

Here are a few snapshots from this week’s press and fan buzz.

Best Praise: “The GorillaPod Micro 250 and GorillaPod Micro 800 take portable and compact tripods to a whole new level. A must have for any on-the-go photo enthusiast, these tiny tripods are a great way to gain some stability without adding clutter or weight.” – Cool Hunting

Best Customer Feedback: “GorillaPod Micro will be so very convenient for all of my family’s photography and videography needs!” – Cindy White

Best Hit-the-Nail-on-the-Head Comment:  “New, super-compact tripod that fits in the palm of your hand. Cool indeed!” – Emily Kiberd

Best Headline: “Wee Tripods Cling to Your Camera Bottom” – Gizmodo

Best MySpace-Photography-Jab: “The new Joby Gorillapod Micro 800 and 250 fold themselves up kind of ingeniously to hug the base of the camera, almost integrating into the camera body so you can slip it into your pocket or case … It means you won’t have to hold your camera up in front of your face for self portraits anymore.” – Gizmodo

Have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back at you next week with some fabulous photography finds!

New GorillaPods! Tiny but mighty!

By | New Product Launch | No Comments

Hello friends!

We’d like to introduce the newest additions to our GorillaPod Family: GorillaPod Micro 250, GorillaPod Micro 800 and GorillaPod Hybrid! We are proud to expand the scope of our GorillaPod line into supports for hybrid cameras and also into always-on tripods.

Now, let’s get to know each of these great new products a bit better.

GorillaPod Micro 250!

GorillaPod Micro 250 is the solution to all of your forgotten tripod woes. Tiny but mighty, the GorillaPod Micro 250 is the first always-on tripod that offers the stability, range of movement and versatility of full-size supports. With GorillaPod Micro, you have a durable tripod when you need it, and a lightweight, always-on tripod for when you don’t. Elegantly concealed beneath the base of the camera, the sleek form is convenient to carry and easily fits in any camera case or pocket. The aluminum and zinc alloy construction is engineered for dependable stability, quick deployment and precise ball positioning. Plus, rubber grips provide rock-solid footing on any surface. Now you can capture crisp low-light landscapes, join group portraits and record time-lapse party scenes, wherever your adventures take you.

GorillaPod Micro 800!

 

Picture perfect photos, without the extra baggage! GorillaPod Micro 250’s bigger brother, GorillaPod Micro 800 is designed with compact system cameras in mind. Durable enough to support the extra weight and power of your hybrid camera but still sleek enough to fit into your pocket or camera case, GorillaPod Micro 800 is the perfect on-the-go solution to your photography needs.

GorillaPod Hybrid! 

 

Everyone’s favorite flexible, wrappable legs meet precise ballhead positioning for your compact system camera or hybrid camera. The perfect companion for your CSC, the GorillaPod Hybrid is the most versatile, portable tripod out there. Its rock-solid stabilization and precise ballhead positioning allow you to capture professional-quality images without the size and weight of a traditional tripod system. Whether you’re staging a last-second street portrait, shooting time-lapse photos, or recording shake-free video, GorillaPod Hybrid lets you unleash the power of your hybrid camera.

It’s time! GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi for iPad 2 Have Arrived

By | New Product Launch | 2 Comments

For months, you have begged, pleaded and  written hilariously-rich statements about your needs for iPad 2 versions of the GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi. Today, your deep yearnings for the hands-free positioning and camera optimizing  benefits of the case + stands: GorillaMobile Ori and GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2 can be fulfilled. Each case targets a different type of iPad user- the Ori is for the power iPad user, while the Yogi is suited for those who use their iPad in a more relaxed and cozy manner. Of course, the toughest part may be deciding what type of user you are!

 

GorillaMobile Ori for iPad 2

Built for the demanding iPad power user, the GorillaMobile Ori for iPad 2 provides sleek ergonomic positioning all in a protective case and stand. Drawing its inspiration from the folding art of origami, the GorillaMobile Ori is engineered from a superlight German-made aluminum/polypropylene composite used in high-performance cars. This next-generation material allows Ori to be folded into countless positions designed with the needs of the mobile professional in mind.  And when folded back into its folio mode, the Ori delivers lightweight, rigid stability that can easily slip it into your bag for travel to the next meeting. The iPad 2 version of the Ori follows on the amazing success and accolades of the Ori for iPad 1 which won best of show by Beatweek Magazine at CES and was awarded finalist at the IDEA awards by ISDA.

Watch the Ori in action:

 
GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2

For those iPad users who would rather read and watch videos in the comfort of their bed or on the couch, the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2, stretches and wraps into the perfect position. The limber yet sturdy legs of the GorillaMobile Yogi twist and bend to stabilize the iPad on uneven surfaces – from your lap to the kitchen cabinet! The polycarbonate case with rubber bumper protects your iPad from shocks and falls. Plus, the quick-release clip easily detaches the modular legs, allowing the case and legs to be used in landscape or portrait mode.

PS Lest you think I am exaggerating the hilarious statements that were sent to me while waiting for release of the iPad 2 versions  – this is my favorite one: “My iPad has been grounded for the past 2 months. He wants to go out and play with his friends and he’s mad I won’t let him without a helmet.”

Friday Finds: JOBY at ICFF with JOBY | Peter Stathis Venture Collaboration

By | Friday Find, New Product Launch | No Comments

JOBY has arrived en masse in New York this week to celebrate the launch of the JOBY | Peter Stathis Venture Collaboration. ICFF opens on Saturday morning, and just to kick it up a notch, we are going to mark the send-off of the new lighting line at CITE -131 Greene St on Friday Night from 6 PM – 8 PM.

The new line of lighting products will be unveiled at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). The JOBY | Peter Stathis Venture Collaboration includes two movement–infused, sculptural lights that are engineered from the inside out and made to instantaneously engage the user by combining function with a sense of play.

Trapeze LED Table Light

The Trapeze LED Table Light presents a revolution in lighting. Ignited by LED technology and patent-pending 360º pivot movement, it is available in two sizes: small and large. With sweeping, fluid motion that works across three-axes, the counterweighted design allows for precise positioning.

The cutting-edge flat-panel LED technology, pioneered and developed by Stathis and his group for the last several years, is the thinnest and most efficient flat-panel LED light engine currently on the market – allowing for the illumination of large areas with brilliant, perfectly even, warm light.

Obus Indoor/Outdoor Light


Obus magically transitions between ambient and directional light to illuminate spaces indoors and out. A unique accent to any contemporary interior, the sculptural organic form produces even, warm ambient light. Once lifted, the portable Obus throws a concentrated beam through its base to direct light where needed.

The new lighting products are designed for JOBY by Peter Stathis, winner of the Editors Award for Best Lighting two of the past three years at ICFF, and highly-decorated industrial designer and principal at Virtual Studio.

Born out of the progressive business culture of California, the JOBY | Peter Stathis Venture Collaboration presents new strategies for design and development, and has created a rule-breaking vision on where American Design is headed.
