Today JOBY—creator of the fun and free Frame X Frame stop motion video app and longtime maker of bendy tripods—has announced two new miniature tripods for compact cameras. The new GorillaPod Micro 250 and Micro 800 are the first “always on” micro tripods, meaning the tripod folds up under the camera body, remaining “elegantly concealed” when not in use. JOBY says, “The sleek form is convenient to carry and easily fits in any camera case or pocket. The aluminum and zinc alloy construction is engineered for dependable stability, quick deployment and precise ball positioning. Plus, the colorful rubber grips provide rock-solid footing on any surface. Now you can capture crisp low-light landscapes, join group portraits and record time-lapse party scenes, wherever your adventures take you.” The Micro 250 ($19.95) supports point-and-shoots of up to 8.8 oz. in weight, and the Micro 800 ($29.95) supports bridge cameras weighing up to 1.75 lbs.
