Great iPhone Tripod: Gymbl Review


The Gymbl is a tripod for the iPhone 4/4S. The iPhone 4S has given many people more desire to use their iPhone for taking personal snap shots. It offers an outstanding eight million pixel camera and 1080P video.  These are great ways to capture those precious memories. The iPhone 4S is always at your fingertips. The Gymbl is considered to be a pocket tripod for the iPhone 4S which sits on three legs. It's extremely compact and easy to carry in a backpack, purse, or coat pocket.

The Gymbl is very simple to set up.  It has three legs.  Two which are made of metal and a third made of plastic. The Gymbl has its own case for the iphone.  It attaches the iPhone to a swivel panorama head which makes following the subject very easy. The Gymbl folds up for easy transport.   It can be thrown in a backpack or pocket without much notice.  After using the Gymbl for taking photographs the case can be still used for protection or as a standalone iphone case for daily use.  This makes setting the Gymbl up even simpler and much faster.  Simply connect the case to the tripod and you’re ready to take professional quality photographs most anywhere.

Youbiq has developed their own application for taking photographs called the YouBiq App.  It cost $2.99 in the app store.  It allows the user to tag the photo by location, shoot multiple photos as part of a single project, and includes two gigs of storage.  The YouBiq app has great potential.  The cloud storage and panorama ability makes the app well worth the $3.  It syncs your photos in the cloud as you shoot.  That’s one of my favorite features of this app.  Check it out.  It’s called YouBiq App.  However, I do think by purchasing the Gymbl, Youbiq should include the App without an extra charge. 

  The Gymbl does an awesome job taking panorama photographs and providing a tripod for the iphone 4S.  If you enjoy taking panorama photos this product will blow you away.  It’s so much easier to get those great panoramic photos without worrying about your hand shaking too much, not getting the photos close enough or overlapping them too much.  If you consider yourself an iphoneographer this is a must.  The Gymbl can be purchased at for $69 or the pro version $99.  Feel free to leave a comment below.  Send me a photo you take and I will post it here for the world to see.  Hope you enjoy.
