Joby Action Series Expands with Quick-Twist Suction Cup Solutions for Action Cams


San Francisco, CA—Joby expanded its collection of adaptable tools for action cam shooters with the newest, modular designs in its Action series: the Suction Cup & Locking Arm and the Suction Cup & GorillaPod Arm.

“As we add designs to our modular Action series line, we consider how to increase the user experience and creativity of today’s GoPro and action cam shooters,” said Kate Farmer, Joby’s brand manager. “Our new suction cup options deliver fast setups, unique perspectives and provide the ultimate hold on all kinds of smooth surfaces. Outside of the industrial-strength hold, we wanted to provide a compact, easy-to-use solution with a design like no other.”

The patent-pending design of the Joby Suction Cup provides a quick-twist lock for fast setup. It’s engineered to provide an industrial-strength hold on all types of smooth, clean, dust-free and nonporous surfaces. The built-in ¼”–20 screw base provides a universal mount, so users can mix and match the two different arm options—the Locking Arm and GorillaPod Arm—for near limitless setups for any action cam shoot.

The Suction Cup & Locking Arm make up a quick-twist, vibration-resistant mounting solution that’s best for use on surfaces prone to vibration, such as cars, boats and motorcycles. The stabilized, sturdy Locking Arm is geared for long-duration shots with its articulating ball joints that rotate 360° and pivot 180° side to side.

The Suction Cup & GorillaPod Arm combo is a quick-twist, flexible mounting solution for use on surfaces with little vibration, such as windows and walls. The GorillaPod ball and socket arm enables users to quickly change the position of the camera angle. This solution is geared for setups requiring quick adjustments and offers an easy way to frame the shot.

All Joby Action series products come with a removable tripod mount for GoPro cams that can be used on any tripod with a ¼”–20 screw. Removing the GoPro mount makes each of the products compatible with other action videocams that use a ¼”–20 tripod mount, such as the Sony Action Cam or Contour cameras.
