    Joby Launches Gorillacam, a Free Camera Self-Timer App for iPhone

    Joby GorillaCam Self Timer App for iPod iPhoneFrom the photography experts at Joby, creators of the Gorillapod line of flexible tripods and the Gorillamobile iPhone stand, comes the GorillaCam, a free, feature-packed camera application for the iPhone.

    Designed to extend the iPhone’s native camera functionality, the Gorillacam adds many features that are unavailable in the basic camera application, including a self-timer, time-lapse, and continuous rapid-fire shooting.

    The Gorillacam’s self-timer function allows you to set a custom time delay, which is ideal for taking group photos or self-portraits. The Gorillacam is the perfect complement to Joby’s popular Gorillamobile for 3G/3GS, an iPhone stand with flexible, wrappable legs that attach to virtually any surface, providing iPhone owners flexibility for taking photos, recording video, watching movies, or talking hands-free.

    The Gorillamobile attaches to the iPhone via a custom engineered protective iPhone 3G/3GS case. In addition to the self-timer, the Gorillacam allows for fast, uninterrupted shots, up to 1.6 frames per second. Photos save automatically in the background allowing users to fire off a sequence of photos. Also built into the Joby Gorillacam is a time-lapse feature that can take multiple photos spaced at user-specified intervals as short as 1 second or as long as 2 minutes.Joby Gorillapod Stand for iPhone iPod Touch

    Other capabilities include:

    • Press anywhere – turns the entire screen into a shutter button.
    • 3-Shot burst – takes three photographs in rapid succession. Never miss a second of the action. Plus, no more photos ruined when someone blinks!
    • Grid overlay – compose more interesting shots with a rule of thirds guide. Also great for lining up landscapes or buildings.
    • Bubble level – take level shots every time. Works in both vertical and horizontal modes, and is ideal for horizons or panoramas.
    • Share – upload or share photos easily from within the Gorillacam.

    The Gorillacam is available for free in the iPhone App Store.  (,
