A Closer Look: Gorillamobile for iPhone 4

As a pastor of a smaller church, I’ve made the decision to embrace the facts that sometimes my personal property will be used for ministry. After all, the call does not stop just because I am “off” from the church. In fact, when I make personal purchases, a significant factor in the purchase decision is how well that item will fill both personal and ministry goals. For instance, my choice of a mobile phone was significantly impacted on how it would be used in both my personal and ministry spheres.

One of the things that helped me settle on the iPhone 4 was the built-in 720p HD video camera. After playing around with my friends’ iPhone 4’s and seeing some of the incredible short movies that were shot and edited entirely on the iPhone 4, I was highly impressed.

Since making the purchase, I’ve produced a number of videos for my blogs, and for Facebook fun. I’ve edited them both on the iPhone and on my laptop. The one thing I have always wanted was some way to stabilize it better. Trying to shoot a video while driving is fairly precarious and something I do¬† not recommend. I just got the Joby Gorillamobile tripod to solve this problem. They make a version for the iPhone 4, as well as one for the iPhone3G/3GS. Here’s a look at it.

  1. I think I want to get one of these. Do you find you are using your iphone more now to capture video with the tripod? Also, what plugin did you use to create the light box effect for this post.

    Thanks!
