Joby introduces a Gorillapod with magnetic legs for even more versatility

The Joby Gorillapod magnetic features the same flexible and wrappable legs as featured on previous models but now incorporates the magnetic tips as featured on the Gorillatorch, launched last year. These are neodymium magnets to any metallic surface, from fridges to car doors, while the rubberised tips prevent them damaging the surface. This model is designed for compact cameras with a maximum weight capacity of 325g, and weighs just 74g. Price and availability to be confirmed.

Press release:

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 18, 2010 – Joby, Inc., the world renowned designer of the GorillapodTM

flexible camera tripod, is pleased to introduce two new additions to

the Gorillapod family of products at this year’s Photo Marketing

Association International tradeshow, February 21-23 in Anaheim, CA.

Joby will showcase its entire suite of products from the Gorillapod, GorillamobileTM , and GorillatorchTM

lines at the Joby booth (#1436, Anaheim Convention Center),

demonstrating its commitment to making thoughtfully-designed,

revolutionary products that meet the creative and active needs of the

photography community.

Inspired by the overwhelmingly positive reception of the

Gorillatorch hands-free flashlight, which features powerful magnetic

feet in addition to flexible, wrappable legs, Joby is thrilled to

introduce the Gorillapod Magnetic

flexible tripod. The world’s most versatile tripod is now even more

adaptable! With the addition of powerful magnets in the feet, the

Gorillapod Magnetic can now be anchored to any magnetic surface, in

addition to being secured with its fully-articulating legs. Stick it to

a pole, wrap it around a tree-branch, or perch it on a jagged rock –

the positioning possibilities are truly endless.

The Gorillapod Magnetic supports compact digital cameras and mini

video cameras weighing up to 11.5oz, weighs just 2.5 ounces, is

6-inches tall, and will be available globally in April.
