Joby Announces Gorillapod Magnetic and Ballhead X Camera Mounts

Today at PMA 2010 (Photo Marketing Association), Joby announced two new products. The Gorillapod Magnetic and the Ballhead X camera mounts. These products continue the tradition of their popular flexible camera tripod, but add a few new features. The Gorillapod Magnetic contains powerful magnets in its feet, allowing it to be anchored to any magnetic surface. The Ballhead X is for the Gorillapod Focus, a new addition to Joby’s Professional Line of photographic equipment. The Ballhead X supports 11.1lbs (5kg) and allows the photographer to easily and fluidly pan, tilt, and rotate his camera. The Ballhead X can be purchased separately or in a bundle with the Gorillapod Focus. The Gorillapod Magnetic and Ballhead X will be available in April. Prices are still unknown at this time.

  2. When I first saw the Gorillatorch I was hoping they would add the magnets to the Gorillapod. Just ordered the Gorillapod Magnetic from Joby’s website.
