Die ultraflexiblen Gorillapod-Stative sollten in den letzten Monaten den meisten Anwendern einmal untergekommen sein – insbesondere bei Kompaktkamera und Handy-Usern erfreuen sich diese einer hohen Beliebtheit. Nun gibt es die “passende” iPhone-Software, die GorillaCam. Diese nutzt die in das iPhone integrierte Kamera und fügt – wie sollte es auch anders sein – weitere Funktionen hinzu. So wird das iPhone dank der kostenlosen Software um einen Selbstauslöser oder eine Serienbildaufnahmefunktion erweitert.

Die Gorillacam App ist kostenlos in Apples AppStore verfügbar.

From the photography experts at Joby, creators of the award-winning Gorillapod line of flexible tripods and the Gorillamobile iPhone stand, comes the Gorillacam, a free, feature-packed camera application for the iPhone. Designed to extend the iPhone’s native camera functionality, the Gorillacam adds many features that are unavailable in the basic camera application, including a self-timer, time-lapse, and continuous rapid-fire shooting.

The Gorillacam’s self-timer function allows the user to set a custom time delay, which is ideal for taking group photos or self-portraits. At last iPhone owners can get into their own photographs and become part of the memories.

The Gorillacam is the perfect complement to Joby’s popular Gorillamobile for 3G/3GS, an iPhone stand with flexible, wrappable legs that attach to virtually any surface, providing iPhone owners unmatched flexibility for taking photos, recording video, watching movies, or talking hands-free. The Gorillamobile attaches to the iPhone via a custom engineered protective iPhone 3G/3GS case. When used in conjunction with the Gorillacam app, it opens up a world of new possibilities for iPhone owners and encourages “iPhoneography”.

In addition to the self-timer, the Gorillacam allows for extremely fast, uninterrupted shots, up to 1.6 frames per second. Photos save automatically in the background allowing users to fire off a sequence of photos. Also built into Gorillacam is a time-lapse feature that can take multiple photos spaced at user-specified intervals as short as 1 second or as long as 2 minutes.

Additional capabilities include:
•    Press anywhere – turns the entire screen into a shutter button.
•    3-Shot burst – takes three photographs in rapid succession. Never miss a second of the action. Plus, no more photos ruined when someone blinks!
•    Grid overlay – compose more interesting shots with a rule of thirds guide. Also great for lining up landscapes or buildings.
•    Bubble level – take level shots every time. Works in both vertical and horizontal modes, and is ideal for horizons or panoramas.
•    Share – upload or share photos easily from within the Gorillacam.
