    The Joby GorillaPod Micro Is The Always-On Tripod You’ve Always Wanted

    The Joby GorillaPod Micro takes the weak link out of using a tripod: You and me.

  • The Joby Gorillabike

    While we wouldn’t recommend hopping on this bike without lots of padding, this cute creation was made to decorate Joby’s PMA booth. It’s made of the same stuff used to make Joby’s Gorilla gear.

  • Joby Professional Ball Head: Not what you think

    Joby makes Gorillapod tripods, those weird, bendy tripods that can attach to trees and railings and let you get a shot from anywhere. One of the biggest complaints, however, was the inability to pan and tilt your camera while attached to the Gorillapods.
