JOBY Revolutionizes The Smartphone Photography Experience With GripTight POV Kit

GripTight POV Kit Stabilizes Smartphones to Capture Shake-Free Photos and Videos; New Impulse™ Bluetooth® Remote Boosts Creativity of Mobile Photography

Petaluma, Calif. — September 20, 2016 — JOBY continues to revolutionize the photo and video experiences on smartphones of all sizes with the GripTight POV Kit. The JOBY GripTight POV Kit stabilizes smartphones to capture shake-free photos and videos with four grip positions providing ultra-smooth image capturing at any angle. The modular and lightweight grip also features the newly designed and fully integrated Impulse™ Bluetooth® remote enabling users to remotely capture the perfect shot from up to 90 feet away.

“More and more smartphones are replacing traditional cameras and consumers have become accustomed to the quick and easy nature of sharing images and videos to their social accounts through their phones. The problem lies in the smartphone’s inherent instability.” said Tim Grimmer, Vice President of Brand and Product for JOBY. “The GripTight POV Kit transforms the smartphone photography and videography experience, and enables users to take shake-free photos and videos, similar to point-and-shoot camera functionality. The integrated Impulse™ Bluetooth remote provides greater shutter control and frees users from jarring touches when capturing images or videos.”

The JOBY GripTight POV Kit (US MSRP $49.95) provides a handheld, stable locking smartphone grip with four primary positions – camera grip, video grip, viewing stand, and action mount. A universal pin joint connection allows for a variety of accessories to be attached, transforming phones into an action camera. The integrated Impulse™ Bluetooth remote attaches to the GripTight POV Kit providing a point-and-shoot shutter feature while also enabling users to capture photos and videos from afar. Constructed with durable ABS plastic, TPE grip pads, and stainless steel plates, the lightweight GripTight POV Kit weighs 2.1 ounces.

The JOBY Impulse (US MSRP $19.95) works seamlessly with Apple and Android smartphones, empowering users to take the ultimate selfies and capture creative angles boosting mobile photography capabilities. The compact design includes an adapter to attach the remote to any GripTight mount and lanyard tether provides convenient carrying options. Certified Bluetooth technology provides up to 90 feet of connectivity without the need to download an associated app and features a replaceable CR2032 battery for continuous shooting.
