One of the biggest benefits of having a better camera on the GoPro Hero line of products is the increased ability for consumers to take high quality photos and videos of the moments that they wish to capture. Ahead of the holiday season we are seeing an influx of accessories that help consumers do this more easily than they have ever been able to do before. Joby recently announced the latest addition to its popular line of action camera accessories with the new Suction Cup & Locking Arm as well as the Suction Cup & GorillaPod Arm.

These new accessories from Joby allow GoPro, Contour and Sony Action Camera users to put their camera in more places then we’ve previously seen. Improving on its popular GorillaPod technology, the bendable arm and suction cup mounting system allow for greater flexibility when it comes to various capturing situations. The Suction Cup & Locking Arm are perfect for high vibration activities such as motorcycling, bike riding or auto racing.
Kate Farmer, brand manager for Joby describes these new additions as so:
“As we add designs to our modular Action Series line, we consider how to increase the user experience and creativity of today’s GoPro® and action cam shooters. Our new Suction Cup options deliver fast set-ups, unique perspectives and provide the ultimate hold on all kinds of smooth surfaces. Outside of the industrial-strength hold, we wanted to provide a compact, easy-to-use solution with a design like no other.”
Joby touts its section cup technology for its patent pending quick-twist locking system that allows for “easy and fast setup” when preparing for a shot. Additionally, the suction cup can alternate between either the Locking or GorillaPod arm so that only one mount is necessary even if two different arms are required for the job. The suction cup mount also attaches to the majority of tripods via its 1/4″-20 screw, which is a typical size and may allow for use with other brands creating a variety of filming setups.
JOBY Action Series Expands to Give Action Cam Users a Unique, Quick-Twist Suction Cup Solution
“As we add designs to our modular Action Series line, we consider how to increase the user experience and creativity of today’s GoPro® and action cam shooters,” said Kate Farmer, JOBY brand manager. “Our new Suction Cup options deliver fast set-ups, unique perspectives and provide the ultimate hold on all kinds of smooth surfaces. Outside of the industrial-strength hold, we wanted to provide a compact, easy-to-use solution with a design like no other.”
The patent-pending design of the Suction Cup provides a quick-twist lock for easy and fast set-up. It’s engineered to provide an industrial-strength hold on all types of smooth, clean, dust-free, and non-porous surfaces. The built-in ¼”-20 screw base provides a universal mount, so users can easily mix and match the two different arm options: Locking Arm and GorillaPod Arm. These two arm solutions paired with the suction cup provide limitless set-ups for any action cam shoot.
The Suction Cup & Locking Arm is the quick-twist, vibration-resistant mounting solution – best for use on surfaces prone to vibration, such as cars, boats, motorcycles, etc. The ultra-stabilized, sturdy Locking Arm is perfect for long-duration shots and delivers crisp footage with its articulating ball joints that rotate 360 degrees and pivot 180 degrees side to side.
The Suction Cup & GorillaPod Arm is the quick-twist, flexible mounting solution – best for use on surfaces with little vibration, such as windows, walls, inside cars, etc. The reliable GorillaPod ball and socket arm allows you to quickly change the position of the camera angle. This solution is perfect for set-ups requiring quick adjustments, and offers an easy way to frame the shot, right where you want it.
All JOBY Action Series products come with a removable Tripod Mount for GoPro® that can be used on any tripod with a ¼”-20 screw. Removing the GoPro® mount makes each of the Action Series products compatible with other action video cameras that use a ¼”-20 tripod mount such as the Sony® Action Cam or Contour® cameras.
