GoPro user Ben Swanson has created a new GoPro mounting system called the MicroJib, but consist of three innovative devices that can be used in a number of different ways to capture that perfect shot using your GoPro action camera.
The FlowTakes the form of a GoPro extendable handgrip that also floats if dropped in the water providing an easy way to retrieve the camera if the worst happen.
Check out the video below to learn more about the different components of the MicroJib GoPro mounting system, which is now available to back by the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with pledges starting from just $24 for super early bird backers. Creator Ben explains more about the inspiration and design behind his GoPro action camera mounting system.
After being successfully funded on our first Kickstarter campaign we were able to get the MicroJib off the ground and even re-order to fulfill demand. We could have continued to make the original MicroJib, but that wasn’t going to cut it for us. We wanted to make it better! So we invested in revamping the MicroJib to make it more user friendly, smoother and safe for use in water. We also wanted a bigger MicroJib, so once again we invested in the development and tooling until a great design for the MicroJib XL was complete. In the mean time of all of these product upgrades another lightbulb went off. There wasn’t a hand grip for Gopro’s that is both extendable and floats. Thats when we came up with the Flow. Nine months of development and expensive tooling and here we are. Three awesome products ready to be made, but we need your pledges to help complete the order!
The Flow is the World’s First Extendable Hand Grip that Floats. It’s incredibly compact and lightweight and will get you great stable shots no matter where you’re filming. Ideal for all water sports, and great for anywhere else you want to take your GoPro! The Flow extends, floats and is super comfortable for any hand size, making a great way to get great shots and keep your camera safe in water.
Pan + Tilt your GoPro 360° with the worlds most portable jib. Our newly revamped MicroJib 2 will be your favorite pole mount to take on all of your adventures. Our patented design allows for 360°of Pan and Tilt, giving you awesome creative freedom while filming! The MicroJib 2 is loaded with new upgrades from our first model.
All of the great features from the MicroJib 2, only Bigger. Extending to an impressive 5ft, the MicroJib XL is perfect for getting Cinematic Jib Shots and big camera motions. The XL is ideal for those who love to film others, but is also small enough to sneak in a few selfie shots 😉
