JOBY Accessories Go 'Mini' with Two Portable, Playful and Practical Photo and Mobile Tripods
NEW Tripods Designed for Point-and-Shoots, Action Video Cameras & Smartphones
SAN FRANCISCO, August 20, 2013 – JOBY launches two adaptable mini tripods to empower the consumer to do more with his or her compact digital gear: the JOBY GPod Mini Magnetic ™ and JOBY MPod Mini Stand™.
"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 of product design and management. "The new tripod stands support consumers as they use their technical tools to get creative with their photos and videos," he added.
Introducing the JOBY GPod Mini Magnetic
Inspired by the original GorillaPod™ tripod, the JOBY GPod Mini Magnetic is a fun and friendly mini-tripod with magnetic feet – the perfect, portable stand that secures to all types of metal objects. Designed for point-and-shoot and action video cameras (such as GoPro cameras), the mini-tripod provides steady and crisp images from all angles. An adjustable neck allows users to change the position of their camera angle for more creative possibilities and the flexible, wrappable leg joints adapt to uneven surfaces.
Introducing the JOBY MPod Mini Stand
Also mini in size but mighty in practicality, the JOBY MPod Mini Stand features a universal design that fits most smartphones, with or without their protective cases (accommodating sizes up to a Samsung Galaxy Note). The mini tripod is built with flexible leg joints that adapt to all types of surfaces. Its expandable head mount clamps a smart phone in place, making it easy to set up a steady shot and enjoy media.
Each mini-tripod weighs less than two ounces, making it truly portable and an ideal lightweight accessory for totes, backpacks, pockets or travel cases.
Based in San Francisco, California, the JOBY brand was founded in 2005 with the introduction of the industry-defining and best-selling GorillaPod™ flexible tripod. JOBY creates creative, award-winning photo, mobile and lighting products that inspire the active lifestyle. We believe great design starts with a user-centric approach, is functional yet playful, and enhances people’s lives. For more information, please visit JOBY.com.
