Joby is continuing its run of clever designs with the fourth installment in its hands-free torch line-up
– the Gorillatorch Switchback. As anyone who's ever been on an overnight hike can attest, any practical two-in-one solution that cuts down on baggage is a bonus, and this one seems to tick the boxes. The Switchback uses one 130-lumen LED light array as both an LED lantern and a headlamp, plus the lamp stand doubles as a camera tripod... better make that three-in-one.
Joby’s Gorillatorch line has been removing the torches from DIYer’s mouths and underarms for a while now with its original 65-lumens Gorillatorch
, which was joined earlier this year by the more powerful 100-lumens Gorillatorch Flare
. For the latest addition to the line Joby has again upped the light intensity with the new Gorillatorch Blade. The Blade features the instantly recognizable flexible legs that are found on all Gorillapod
tripods, along with a long-lasting CREE XLamp XP-C LED producing up to 130 lumens of light output, which can be adjusted from spot to flood.
Last August, we told you about the wonderfully-named Joby Gorillatorch. It’s an LED lamp mounted on a Gorillapod tripod, the bendy, knobby, magnet-tipped legs of which allow it to be mounted almost anywhere - it can wrap around branches, cling to a car’s fender, or hang from the inside of a tent. Now, Joby has announced that the Gorillatorch is being joined by a souped-up big brother... the Gorillatorch Flare.
Gorillapod's camera tripods have become a common sight since they were released a few years back and there's a good reason for that - it's a great idea. Now Gorillapod designer Joby has announced a new addition to the range - the Gorillapod Magnetic - which incorporates magnets into the feet of the flexible tripod allowing it to be anchored to any magnetic surface.
Joby, creator of the bendy Gorillapod
camera tripod, has announced a hands-free flashlight called the Gorillatorch. Consisting of an LED lamp unit mounted on a Joby flexible tripod, the Gorillatorch’s design lets you twist and bend the legs around to position the light just where you need it.
