Joby's GorillaCam Enhances the iPhone Camera for Free

gorilla.jpgJoby, makers of the popular GorillaPod flexible tripod, just launched the GorillaCam App on the iPhone App store, a shockingly feature packed free app to enable some excellent photo taking utilities into your iPhone.  Here's a rundown of the features:

  • 3 Shot Burst - With one tap, the iPhone will take 3 consecutive photos and save them to the photo library.  Certainly excellent for getting a shot without someone blinking.
  • Self Timer - Assuming you have a tripod, the self-timer allows you to get into the shot.  The timer can be set for intervals between 3 and 90 seconds.  
  • Time Lapse - This allows you to take multiple photos spaced at certain intervals.  You can set the number of shots between 3 to 200 and the time interval between 1 and 120 seconds.
  • Press Anywhere - Instead of tapping the camera icon at the bottom of the screen, you can tap anywhere on the screen to take a photo.  Ideal for giving the camera to a friend to take a shot.
  • Bubble Level - With the bubble level turned on, you can make sure that you are holding the iPhone level during a shot.  The level is spread across a thin bar at the top of the screen.
  • Grid Overlay - Likely reaching out more to the professional photographer, the grid overlay allows you to apply the rule of thirds to your photo composition.
