JOBY Expands Perspectives with Release of Action Grip and Action Grip & Pole

New Action Cam Accessories From JOBY Put Consumers in the Shot and Grows the Action Series Collection

Petaluma, CA, March 10, 2015 – JOBY expands its Action Series collection for enthusiasts and serious GoPro®, Ion®, Contour® and Sony® Action Cam users with the new Action Grip and Action Grip & Pole.

“Action video cameras continue to gain traction globally, with Futuresource Consulting estimating that we will reach nine million units by 2018,” said Kate Farmer, JOBY brand director. "Since 2006 we have been focused on enabling consumers to change their perspective, empowering them to get the right angle for the right shot no matter where they are or what they’re doing. The Action Grip and Action Grip & Pole work with any action cam and allow consumers to expand their reach and create new perspectives for action shots.”

The Action Grip (US MSRP $24.95) is a floating hand grip for shooting photos or video with any action camera. With this hand-held tool, consumers can capture footage while swimming, surfing and diving without fear of losing their device during the activity – the floating handle with built-in tether helps secure the grip at the wrist. A removable end cap allows the addition of a pole or broom with a standard painter’s pole thread.

The Action Grip & Pole (US MSRP $34.95) is a complete, out-of-the-box solution for action cam shooters who want to capture longer range of shots and angles. The Action Grip & Pole bundle includes the hand grip plus a modular, 18-inch (46-centimeter) aluminum extension pole. Both pieces float, enabling consumers to use all pieces in and around water. The removable and threaded end cap allows for the addition of multiple poles to extend the reach and increase the creativity of action cam shots.

JOBY products are innovatively designed to address the needs of creative and active consumers. All of the Action Series products come with a built-in, standard GoPro mount and thumbscrew, plus a top pin to use with other action cams with a ¼"-20 attachment point. Removing the GoPro mount makes each of the Action Series products compatible with other action video cameras that use a ¼"-20 tripod mount such as the Ion, Sony Action Cam or Contour cameras. The Action Grip and Action Grip & Pole come with a one year warranty and are designed with ABS plastic, steel, rubber, and stainless steel for durability and seamless connections.
