Beside the plethora of digital cameras released at Photokina, we've also come across quite a few interesting accessories, one of the most notable being the Gorillapod Video, a new ultra-versatile tripod solution from Joby designed specifically to be used with video cameras.
The Gorillapod Video comes equipped with an omni-directional positioning video head that allows for easy orientation at any angle, with seamless 360 degree pan and 135 degree tilt.
Constructed of anodized aluminum, the lightweight design is engineered for durability and capture on-the-go.
The Gorillapod Video’s flexible, wrappable ball-and-socket legs provide stability anywhere, and the super strong magnetic feet allow you to achieve vantage points that were previously impossible.
Plus, the quick-release plate makes it easy to go from hands-free to handheld in seconds.
The Gorillapod Video is designed for most mini and pocket camcorders and point-and-shoot cameras with video capabilities, supporting devices up to 11.5 ounces, weighs 2.8 ounces and is 7.2 inches high.
“The power of Gorillapod Video is the ability to drastically improve the quality of the personal camcorder experience,” says Joby CEO Forrest Baringer-Jones.
“This device allows people to really step-up the quality of their video without the hassle of transporting something big and bulky.
The beauty of the personal video recording movement is the ability to capture amazing moments in everyday life; the Gorillapod Video makes the video actually worth sharing without inciting nausea.”
The Gorillapod Video has an MSRP of $29.95, which makes it an extremely interesting solution for amateur videographers.
