San Francisco, CA—Joby added two adaptable mini tripods to help consumers to do more with their compact digital gear: the GPod Mini Magnetic and the MPod Mini Stand tripods.
“Our mini accessories were designed for the convenience and creativity of today’s spontaneous point-and-shoot and action video camera users, as well as smartphone users who use their devices to shoot images and enjoy media,” said Michael Jue, director, Product Design and Management. “The new tripod stands support consumers as they use their technical tools to get creative with their photos and videos.”
Joby GPod Mini Magnetic. Inspired by the original GorillaPod tripod, the GPod Mini Magnetic is a user-friendly tripod with magnetic feet that secure to all types of metal objects. Designed for point-and-shoot and action video cameras, the mini tripod is designed to provide steady, crisp images from all angles. An adjustable neck allows users to change the position of their camera angle for more creative possibilities, and the wrappable leg joints adapt to uneven surfaces. $14.95.
Joby MPod Mini Stand. Also mini in size, the stand features a universal design that fits most smartphones, with or without their protective cases, and it accommodates sizes up to a Samsung Galaxy Note. The mini tripod is built with flexible leg joints that adapt to all types of surfaces. An expandable head mount clamps a smartphone in place, aiding in setting up a steady shot or enjoy viewing media. $14.95.
Available for preorders beginning August 20, each mini tripod weighs less than two ounces. joby.com
