Friday Finds: Foot tapping worthy videos filmed with Gorillapods and Press for Gorillamobile for iPhone 4

By | Friday Find, Gorillamobile, Gorillapod, iPhone, Press | One Comment

Hello Creactives,

To get us into a swinging weekend mood, I have two great videos filmed with Gorillapods this week. The first one really has a Gorillapod SLR Zoom as the star of its very own madcap adventure movie.

1-Mintue Silent Film from Fatma Al-Nasr on Vimeo.

This video of the cameraman doing his thing during a soccer game comes with a dancing-in-your seat worthy ditty.

Offside – Swedbank Stadion from Niklas Kristensson on Vimeo.

And of course, this week would not be complete without mention some of the amazing press we received for Gorillamobile for iPhone 4; including ZDNET, Engadget Macworld, and Gizmodo. Plus, Gorillatorch Switchback got  a lovely write-up in WIRED who declared “Headlamp + Lantern + Tripod = Sheer Brilliance.” We may blush, but we’ll take the compliment.

For all of you in San Francisco, JOBY will be at GDGT Live tonight, be sure to swing by!

By | Gorillamobile, iPhone, New Product Launch | 17 Comments

After months of not knowing exactly what to do with your iPhone 4, we have finally come up with the perfect solution for you. Yes, you may have thought it was cool already with its digital zoom, multiple cameras, retina display  and the works  – but, you are about to watch it get that much better. Enter the GorillaMobile for iPhone 4. At JOBY, we love photography/videography and realized that if we were able to truly unlock the power of the phone for that purpose, we would be well on our way to creating the perfect product for the iPhone 4.  This new, super durable bumper case adds virtually no weight or size to your phone. You can easily slip it into your pocket when you’re on-the-go, and be ready for the inevitable moment of dropsy that will occur in the course of your week.

The sleek case has a rail system which allows it to easily slide on and off – in both portrait and landscape mode. While, the flexible, bendable tripod legs enable you to find the perfect position for FacetTiming, timelapse videos or just taking pictures in low light situations. So, all you iPhone 4 users, go forth and take tons of pictures, videos, …and other things.
