Joby Gorilla Pod Rig

Joby, maker of a variety of lightweight camera stands and accessories, has created the Joby Gorilla Pod Rig.

The Joby Gorilla Pod Rig comes in two flavors: a mobile phone version priced at $99 and aimed at mobile phone shooters and a DSLR version priced at $199 that has a load capacity of 11 lbs. Here are a few mounting configurations for the smaller Gorilla Pod Rig Mobile:

Made from ABS Plastic, Aluminum, Nylon Webbing, Stainless Steel and TPE, this rig seems well made too.

Obviously a major advantage of the Gorilla Pod system is the ability to mount the rig to trees, railings, bikes and → continue…
