The JOBY Spin (US$89.95)

Designed in partnership with Syrp Lab, the JOBY Spin gives users 360° motion control that’s navigated with a smartphone via the dedicated JOBY Motion app for iOS or Android. This allows users to create g output including smooth videos, moving timelapses, and panoramic stills.

 The Spin weighs in at 130g (0.3 lb) with a panning payload up to 750g (1.65lb) and tilting payload up to 500g ( 1.1lb). The pocket-sized device also comes conveniently bundled with the GripTight PRO phone mount in the Spin Phone Mount Kit for easy setup. You just pair the Spin with a GorillaPod or JOBY support.

Creators have the option of pairing two Spin units together with the Pan Tilt Bracket to create dual axis timelapses, b-roll, and video shots. The ability to pan and tilt simultaneously allows for landscape videos and astrovideography at the press of a button.
