JOBY, maker of the highly portable, highly popular GorillaPod flexible mini-tripod, is back with the new Podzilla tripod line, which is specifically designed to give aspiring content creators a durable and flexible solution for stabilizing their camera or smartphone on the go. Perfect for beginning vloggers, travel photographers, and social media content creators, the Podzilla is available in medium and large sizes, and both come with the Griptight 360 Phone Mount, which is also sold separately.
The medium size Podzilla tripod weighs a little more than half a pound and features a durable aluminum core, which is covered in grippy rubber that’s easy to grip. About 10" high, the medium Podzilla is designed for cameras, smartphones, lights, mics, and other accessories that use a ¼"-20 mount and weigh up to 2.2 pounds. With a push-button, adjustable ball head, signature flexible leg design, and included Griptight 360 Phone Mount, the Podzilla Medium kit is a great option for those just getting started as content creators using compact mirrorless cameras or smartphones. For a touch of style, the Podzilla Medium tripod is available in gray, red, teal, and yellow.
If you’re using a DSLR or a mirrorless camera with a heavy lens, JOBY has you covered with the Podzilla Large tripod kit. Weighing slightly less than a pound, the Podzilla Large is designed for cameras and other gear with a ¼"-20 mount, weighing up to 5.5 pounds. It’s fitted with a compact QR plate, plus a convenient, built-in bubble level to ensure your shot is even with the horizon, and the head features a screw knob for secure adjustability. As mentioned above, the Podzilla Large also ships with the Griptight 360 Phone Mount and is available in gray and black.
The Griptight 360 Phone Mount not only works with both Podzilla models but will also attach to any support with a ¼"-20 thread. The jaws are wide enough to fit phones up to 3.4", and can be easily rotated, making swaps between vertical and horizontal orientations quick and easy. There are even cold shoe attachment points on each end of the mount, so adding lights and mics is a viable option for every level of creator.
