    Product Description

    The JOBY Compact Advanced Kit is the clever sibling in the JOBY Compact Family. Featuring classic JOBY DNA, touch points have been refined to give a fun yet functional vibe and of course, it pairs perfectly with other products in the JOBY family. With a genius 3-way head design, professional looking content is only a few twists away. And check out the QR plate, It’s the same as the World Famous JOBY BallHead 3K which we use on the GorillaPod 3K Kit. That means swapping between your favourite GorillaPod and Full size tripod has never been easier. This kit is also supplied with a unique phone clamp, which features cold shoe mounts on both ends. With that sort of radness you get to add a light at one end and a mic at the other. Let the Vlogging commence. The phone bracket also rotates within the mount, so you can swap from landscape b-roll to portrait dance-off in a matter of seconds. For travel those nifty control bars fold back, so you can slide those legs away using the lever leg locks and throw this tripod on your back with ease. Don’t worry though, with a reinforced aluminium construction, this package can handle everyday use. What is more, with a solid 6.6 pound weight capacity, you can add the latest hardware to this tripod kit and not have to worry about it at all.
