Joby launches the Yogi & Ori for iPad

JOBY, the world-renowned designer of the best-selling GorillaPod™ line of innovative camera tripods has today launched two new products that dramatically enhance the iPad experience. For the road warrior, the GorillaMobile Ori amplifies the productivity of the iPad with ergonomic design and sleek protection on the go. The GorillaMobile Yogi is designed for the user who sees the iPad as an extension of themselves and wants to cuddle up with the iPad on the couch or in bed.
“JOBY excels at uncovering powerful consumer insights and designing products that change the way you interact with mobile devices.” says CEO Forrest Baringer-Jones. “We set out to develop a case + stand solution that would enhance the daily iPad experience, so users could get more out of their device. In the course of our research, we realized that iPad users approach the product very differently depending on how the iPad integrates into their lifestyle – resulting in two very different but equally compelling products.”

Unlike anything else on the market, the GorillaMobile Ori transforms from a sleek protective case to a versatile, ergonomic positioning stand to unlock the true potential of the iPad. Drawing its inspiration from the folding art of origami, the GorillaMobile Ori is engineered from a superlight German-made aluminum/polypropylene composite used in high-performance cars. The four main viewing modes are optimized for the task at hand, so you can position the stand to watch a movie on the plane, flip through a business presentation or type an email at a café – with the ability to adjust the display height and viewing angle to be comfortable for you. The Ori delivers rigid stability in a sculptural, lightweight form and provides streamlined protection, so you can easily slip it into your bag when in folio mode.

Inspired by the desire to read and view videos without putting a kink in your neck, the flexible GorillaMobile Yogi easily wraps around and clings to any surface with its oversized ball and socket legs. The limber and sturdy legs of the GorillaMobile Yogi twist and bend to stabilise the iPad on uneven surfaces or wrap around fixtures in the kitchen to become the perfect companion for your grand cooking plans. With an adjustable viewing angle in portrait or landscape orientation, GorillaMobile Yogi lets you get comfortable easily - even on the laziest of Sundays. The polycarbonate case with rubber bumper protects your iPad from shocks and falls. Plus, the quick-release clip easily detaches the modular legs, allowing the case and legs to be quickly stowed in your bag together or separately.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Introduction


Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
