Compact Light Kit


To ensure that content creators around the world have access to the very best in compact tripod options, JOBY is delighted to announce their new complete full-size tripod range, JOBY Compact. Delivering feature-rich options that work with both conventional cameras and smartphones, these lightweight, strong tripods and monopod enable vloggers to set up stable, robust and versatile platforms for content creation on the go. They’re designed to be incredibly lightweight so they’re easy to add to any mobile kit. Options include the GripTight 360 Phone Mount that allows users to switch from landscape to portrait mode in seconds. 

There are four members of the JOBY Compact family made of three tripods and one monopod, each designed for different shooting styles, locations, and content creation


The JOBY Compact Light

Simple, easy to set up and incredibly user-friendly, the JOBY Compact Light is the perfect choice for on-the-go vlogging and content creation. It's the practical compromise between a mini- and full-size tripod and has feather-light weight so you can use it when you are on the move.

It’s lightweight at just 0.81kg, delivering full-size options in a compact design. It can take a payload of up to 1.5kg, and it’s supplied with a mobile phone mount so users can add lights, mics and a wide range of JOBY options to create a complete TikTok set-up in seconds.

In just seconds you can attach your camera via the quick wheel and the universal 1/4'' camera attachment. With the built-in ball head and the single adjustment knob, you can quickly lock the camera into place and be ready for shooting.


The JOBY Compact Action Tripod

Get ready to create dynamic photo or movie content with this action-orientated option. Paring perfectly with other products in the JOBY range, the Compact Action features the same QR plate as the genre defining BallHead 3K, found on the GorillaPod 3K Kit. 

The JOBY Compact Action tripod has an ergonomic joystick head with an easy-to-use, intuitive scroll-wheel locking mechanism for maximum sturdiness. It also has a comfortable grip, enabling you to capture smoother photos and images effortlessly. With the photo/movie selector knob, you can switch from photo to movie mode in just a second, so you never miss out on an important photo or video opportunity.

In the kitted version (JOBY Compact Action Kit), a unique rotating phone clamp is featured, with cold shoe mounts on both ends for total versatility.

The JOBY Compact Advanced

Take vlogging to the next level with the Compact Advanced. Packed with innovative features, it’s designed to take compact mirrorless and DSLR cameras with ease. The 3-way head allows users to tilt and rotate for professional results, while the QR BallHead 3K is the same as the one used on the famous GorillaPod 3K kit, making this interchangeable with the whole JOBY kit range. Its 3kg capacity allows users to interchange parts and add on equipment with no loss of stability.

The JOBY Compact 2-in-1 Monopod

When space is an issue, or if the content requires that “on-the-move” simplicity and dynamism, the JOBY Compact 2-in-1 Monopod is the answer. This option-packed monopod has a 1kg weight capability and a compact BallHead to create the ultimate selfie stick. For action shots, a Pin-Joint mount is also supplied. The 4-section design includes lever-lock legs that deploy or are retracted in seconds. Weighing just 0.28kg, the 2-in-1 Monopod is the ultimate lightweight monopod option that works with almost all cameras and mobile phones.


Joby Podzilla - Flexible fun and reliable performance for aspirational content creators



As more and more people discover how easy it is to create their own content, the demand for high-quality entry-level equipment is growing. To respond to this surge in demand, JOBY has introduced the Podzilla range, awesome flexible tripods that are designed for new and developing content creators. They’re packed with new technology that makes them simple yet effective flexible tripods suitable for use in almost any situation. 

The functional flex design incorporates an aluminium core that’s tough, strong, and durable, covered in grippy rubber outer that’s flexible and easy to position. Because each leg is fully articulated, vloggers can achieve a stable, level platform for recording, even on uneven terrain.


Podzilla Medium

The Podzilla Medium Kit is simple to use, incorporating a ¼-20” locking wheel mount with push-button adjustability. It’s designed to work with compact mirrorless and bridge cameras and smartphone, thanks to the GripTight 360 Phone Mount included. The spring-loaded rotation gives the user the capability to swap from portrait to landscape format with ease. JOBY has also added some colours to meet the demand of young content creators, so the PodZilla™ Medium Kit is available in four different colours – grey, red, teal and yellow. 


Podzilla Large

For users who want something a little more substantial, the PodZilla Large is the answer. This bigger brother measures 31.5 x 5.5 x 7.3cm (as compared to the Medium’s 25 x 4.8 x 5.4cm dimensions) and its ¼-20” mount is designed to support loads of up to 2.5kg. The compact QR plate allows easy attachment of gears and the built-in bubble level lets users fine-tune the positioning to get a perfectly level surface for more professional-looking content. 

Also available in the kit version, Podzilla Large Kit, featuring the GripTight 360 Phone Mount, can hold lights and mics for a complete vlogging set-up with your phone. 

Everything about the Podzilla is designed to be quick, easy to use, and reliable, making achieving professional-quality content simple. It’s super-fast and easy to attach lights, mics and cameras or mobile phones, allowing the user to create content in any situation. The Podzilla can pair with Beamo™ and Wavo™ equipment, creating a compact and versatile package for vloggers, influencers, and content creators on the move.
