Joby’s Gorillapod has been the tripod of choice amongst many vloggers for quite a few years now. They weren’t originally designed for this use, though, and it’s been tough for them to stand up to the rigors of daily use for this purpose. They don’t always last as long as some might hope and vloggers have posted at length with their frustrations, yet still keep buying more.
Joby has now responded to those concerns, though, announcing the Gorillapod 3K Pro – a lightweight aluminium version of the Gorillapod designed to help stand up to those daily vlogger demands. DIYP had a chat with Joby during NAB 2019 to find out more about it.
There are a few brands out there that make small, compact tripods. But SwitchPod is a new product that aims to provide you with everything you need from a mini tripod.

Well, especially vlogs, I’d say.

Although they’re mainly aimed at filming, photographers can use some of them as well.
A few weeks back Kickstarter’s Cineskates project funded with almost half a million from backers.
It was only a matter of time till someone came up with a budget friendly solution. Instructables user fungus amungus built a similar contraption using a Hybrid Gorillapod and $35 worth of Rollerblade wheels (for two sets of dollies).
For this project you actually have to drill the Gorillapod unlike the click-based Cineskates system, but saving about a $100 may provide some incentive.

One of the major obstacles with vlogging is sound. Isolating the sound and having it record at high quality is a big deal. I strongly feel that we are far more inclined to stop watching something with bad audio than we are if the visuals are bad. We can put up with flickering pictures or low quality, low-resolution images for a lot longer than we can put up with bad audio. It seems Joby has done something to address this.
Superior quality on-camera vlogging microphone. That’s the tagline from the Joby website, and at just 80 grams, that’s quite a punchy statement.

Wavo is compact, portable and is constructed of some fairly decent materials.
Some of us have had ants in the kitchen, or maybe we had to deal with these little creatures while camping. But have you ever had your camera swarmed by ants? Dakota McLearn was unpleasantly surprised recently when he saw that his Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K had become home to a colony of ants. He shared his experience in a video and it’s as fascinating as it is scary.
