Hello mechanically minded photographers out there!  Here is a fun weekend project, easily explained and with some very impressive results. This step by step approach to building a Steadicam is super informative, easy to follow…of course doing it might be a whole other ball of wax.  As always, be careful when handling heat and pvc piping. Yep, Mom was right about playing with fire.

    Wondering when you plan to release an iPhone 4 gorillapod. Will it be magnetic?

    Any (easy) way of turning a standard magnetic gorillapod into a holder for an iPhone 4?

    Sorry for late reply – moderating system snafu. Gorillamobile for iPhone 4 is scheduled to be released this fall. Can't speak to the specifics, but we are excited about it.

    For adapting current magnetic legs to the iPhone 4 you could try attaching the adhesive clip or suction cup in the Gorillamobile Mobile Accessory Kit ( to your phone and use it with your Gorillapod Magnetic.
