Maybe this cheeky use of the product will inspire your next food masterpiece. Or, just make your next cooking disaster easier to recover from.

Joby Sponsors Photography Fest in July

Late Night Shoot Out
Travel to Zagreb and witness a side by side comparison…sorry, an impression… of night shooting with a Canon 5D Mark II vs. a Panasonic DMC GFI. This fun comparison of expensive vs. accessible camera gear and accessories is a great read. Here are the details on this evening adventure of side by side shooting on Veo el Mundo blog.
It’s Friday and its time to share a little bit of the fun that has been happening around here.
Last week a few of us from Joby had the pleasure of attending Swagapalooza, an at times raucous event where companies showcase their products to a gathering of social media greats – and some others. Guy Kawasaki keynoted and a bevy of hard core twitterers joined in the fun. The live twitter feed made for some “interesting” moments. Joby CEO Forrest presented some of the creative ways Joby products have been used for photography including an awesome shot by our Director of Industrial Designer inside Notre Dame in Paris. Despite rules against tripods, our wily Gorillapod was welcomed into the venerable cathedral, allowing for some great photos even with the low lighting.
Here is the image that was taken inside of Notre Dame and the set-up:
Here is a video of our CEO Forrest speaking:
Joby was thrilled to be involved in the San Francisco Twestival event last week, which successfully raised over $10K for Concern Worldwide, an organization which seeks to bring education to the world’s poorest children. Concern has been implementing innovative programs and solutions for over 40 years. The worthy caused brought together a number of people from the social media to tweet, drink, listen to music and drink some more.
We love the press love…here are some recent hits which make us feel – oh so very happy.
Best title of the week goes to Graphic Design & Publishing Center who wrote an article entitled “You need a tripod…a Gorillapod.” While the title may not be subtle, they certainly get the message across.
Honorable mention from a few weeks goes to this ultra long but very funny title from Cult of Mac; “iPhone apps weekly digest: The day Mr. Mediocre came to town and got smashed in the face by Gorillacam.”
Other great press clippings this week include a piece on the Gorillatorch for in the Atlanta Journal Constitution and a piece on the Gorillamobile for Smart Computing.
