Joby GorillaPod Micro

New super-compact tripod that fits in the palm of your hand


Joby is notorious for their creative ideas in photography support systems. With their roots in twisting, winding, magnetized tripods for cameras of all sizes, today the company announced two new and exciting additions to their product line. The GorillaPod Micro 250 and GorillaPod Micro 800 take portable and compact tripods to a whole new level.


Weighing only a few ounces the 250 supports up to 250 grams of photo snapping action while its big brother the 800 can support up to 800 grams. Both models fan out to form a sturdy base for your camera, and while closed fit easily in the palm of your hand or left attached, aren’t obtrusive. The mini-tripods also have a steel mount which has thirty-six degrees of tilt motion in any direction to allow the user to position their camera as desired. A must have for any on-the-go photo enthusiast, these tiny tripods are a great way to gain some stability without adding clutter or weight.

Available today from Joby for $20 (GorillaPod Micro 250) and $30 (GorillaPod Micro 800).
