Joining the GorillaPod Mobile Rig recently launched by JOBY comes another new product from the company: the GripTight PRO TelePod. This little telescoping tripod doubles as a lightweight extending pole and is designed primarily for professional video creators working with smartphones or small cameras, such as an action cam.
The JOBY GripTight PRO TelePod supports both landscape and portrait modes, as well as adjustable tilt for selfies. The tripod weighs 359g / 12.7oz and sports the company’s GripTight mount, as well as a hand grip, extended grip, and both elevated and tabletop tripod modes. A removable Bluetooth Impulse Remote Shutter enables users to capture shots remotely.
In addition to the tilting tripod mount, the GripTight PRO TelePod includes a cold shoe PRO mount for accessories, and a Pin Joint mount for action cameras like GoPro. The tripod can be extended to lengths up to 79cm / 31in and is made from fiberglass-reinforced nylon plus stainless steel. The tripod’s legs have three positions and a maximum flattened leg span of 36cm / 14in.
The GripTight PRO TelePod is available from JOBY’s website now for $100 USD.
