A few months back I spent some time playing with the Joby Gorillatorch flashlight. The Gorillatorch is a flashlight that is attached to a tripod with three magnetic feet. The thing is fantastic and puts light just where you want it without you having to hold it, assuming there is metal around. Joby has now announced similar tech for cameras called the Gorillapod Magnetic.
Smile!! If you love to take photos, you know that sometimes the great picture is hard to capture. Finding a right spot to shoot is not always easy, but thanks to the Gorillapod, now you can shoot from anywhere from any terrain you want.
The Gorillapod is a tripod with three flexible legs that can rotate 360 degrees. It can grip on to just about anything. Whether you are shooting with a small digital camera, an SLR, or a video camera, the Gorilapod is there for you.
Price: £19.95 ($24.20)

Joby, maker of the GorillaPod, has introduced the MPod Mini Stand and the GPod Mini Magnetic, two small and flexible tripods that are designed for compact digital cameras and smartphones. Both are now available in the US from Joby's website, with the smartphone-based MPod Mini and the Magnetic GPod being priced at $14.95 USD.
Nokia's 808 PureView has landed, and we're the most excited we've been about a Symbian phone in years. Gradually rolling out in Europe this month, and up for preorder - albeit with a hefty off-contract price tag of $699 - in the US with deliveries next month, the 808 has progressively wowed us since its MWC debut with its game-changing approach to photography. Little surprise, then, that we jumped at the chance to try out one of Nokia's 808 PureView kits.
The makers of the Joby Gorillapod may have another hit on their hands with a robotic iPhone platform called the Galileo. Under a new venture called Motrr, JoeBen Bevirt and Josh Guyot are the brains behind the Galileo, which has already received $400,000 in Kickstarter funding, surpassing its $100,000 goal, and is now getting ready to ship in June.
Camera enthusiasts, both aspiring and pro, are getting creative with DSLR cameras for cinematic projects, which leads to interesting new solutions for their needs. Cinetics is introducing a new tripod setup called the CineSquid that's a mix of a GorillaPod Focus tripod, a BallHead X camera mount, and industrial-strength suction cups so that it can be mounted to almost any smooth surface.
Photographers and videographers are creative sorts that are always looking for new things they can do to make their video and photos more artistic. This leads many people to look for new lenses and filters. A new system for holding your camera has surfaced on Kickstarter and it will add some interesting new capabilities to your photos and video. The system is called Cineskates.
It’s time for another giveaway here on SlashGear! Gorillapod have given us two of their new Gorillamobile for iPod touch cases, the only iPod touch case that comes with its own set of flexible, bendable legs, making watching movies on your iPod Touch much more enjoyable than holding it on your hand.
