Joby GripTight GorillaPod Stand

A tripod is an essential part of a photographer’s and this stands true for phoneographer’s too, researching my options it wasn’t long before I found exactly what I was looking for.

I’ve used a Gorillapod in the past for supporting a DSLR but hadn’t realised that there was a version for mobile phones. I ordered mine from eBay and it was delivered in very good time.

Why A GorillaPod?

The main selling point of the GripTight is its flexible legs, with ten segments to each leg you’re able to wrap it around an object, making your phone stable in mass of different situations. When using it recently I was very impressed by the way the legs gripped a vertical post. I had thought that I would have to use one of the legs to support the phone’s weight, but this wasn’t the case.

The Grip Head

I’ve found I use the Joby GripTight GorillaPod Stand for more than just my phonepography now, when I watch a movie, time lapse or even type out his post!

I love phoneography because the ‘kit’ is so portable and this fits perfectly in my makeshift kit bag. It weighs just 65g and goes with me on every phoneography walk.
