To Covet: GorillaPod GripTight Tripod

GorillaPod GripTight Tripod for iphone Android Samsung Smartphones
By Butterboom Writers  /  October 8, 2013

The GorillaPod GripTight stand from JOBY is a brilliant way for you to take pictures with your smartphone hands free! GorillaPod has long been a popular brand for camera tripods and is most known for its signature flexible legs that can wrap firmly around almost anything. This extremely versatile tripod, designed especially for smartphones, works on both flat and irregular surfaces and is perfect for ‘selfies’ as well as landscape shots that require a steady hand. The legs are made of a series of interlocking spherical joints which enable the tripod to work almost like a hand; bending, twisting and wrapping solidly letting you position your phone anywhere and any way you like.

What we love:

  • It’s easy to set up for photographs. The grip on the stand has internal springs making it easy for you to attach your device securely.
  • It’s lightweight and portable. The GripTight is small enough to pop in your handbag and light enough to be carried around without you noticing!
  • It comes in six different colours: green, blue, light blue, grey, black and pink.
  • It fits with phone cases and other accessories without getting in the way.

What could be better:

  • JOBY sells the magnetic GripTight stand separately from the normal version which can be confusing.


How much?

The GorillaPod GripTight stand costs US$29.95.
