GorillaPod has a new member of their family of flexible tripods. JOBY has announced GorillaPod Mobile Rig, aimed particularly at smartphone filmmakers. This rig has the same flexible design, but with an extra pair of “arms” in addition to the three legs. So, it lets you mount the additional accessories for a better smartphone video or vlog.
GorillaPod Mobile Rig keeps the recognizable design, flexibility, and versatility. You can grip it, wrap it around something or use it as a regular tripod. It features a smartphone mount made from stainless steel, adjustable for both portrait and landscape orientation.
For the first time, a GorillaPod gets a pair of arms. The new mount for the tripod has two threaded attachment points for mounting the arms. The arms have an included cold shoe and a pin joint mount provide you with a great number of creative possibilities. Along with your smartphone, you can attach the lights, microphone or an action camera. It reminded me of that “ultimate selfie stick” we wrote about a few months back.
If you were just looking for a vlogging/mobile video gadget like this, GorillaPod Mobile Rig will soon be available on JOBY website at the price of $99.95. For more information, follow their Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
