December 29, 2009: Joby has launched two tripods and a free camera self timer application designed specifically for the latest camera phones.
Joby’s Gorillamobile is designed to provide versatile hands-free operation for mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, portable gaming devices, GPS units, mini video cameras, pocket projectors and almost any other mobile device. Featuring the characteristic ball-and-socket tripod legs it is fully adjustable and comes with four interchangeable adapters that affix to and balance on any surface. They include a custom-engineered suction cup for a temporary hold, two removable high-bond adhesive clips and a universal camera adapter with 1/4-inch tripod screw.

The Gorillamobile weighs less than 50 grams, is just under 15 centimetres tall and can support up to 325 grams. Available in Grey/Black only, the Gorillamobile comes with a limited one-year warranty. It carries an RRP of $42 and is on sale now.
The Gorillamobile for 3G/3GS has the same essential features as the Gorillamobile but includes four interchangeable quick-release adapters plus a custom-engineered, slimline iPhone case. Retailing for $59, it is 15 cm tall, weighs 63 grams and can support weights up to 325 grams. It is available in Australian stores now.

Joby extends the functionality of the iPhone’s camera and the Gorillamobile for 3G/3GS stand with Gorillacam, a free, feature-packed camera application for the iPhone. Providing additional features like a self-timer, time-lapse triggering and continuous shooting of three frames at up to 1.6 frames/second, Gorillacam was created in cooperation with San Francisco-based iPhone developers, AppTight. The time-lapse function lets users take multiple photos spaced at intervals between one second and two minutes.
