The kit will sell for US$199.95.
The Beamo LED (US$89,95) and Beamo Mini LED ($69.95) are compact and rugged, able to be used anywhere, including up to 100 feet underwater. The light delivers 1,500 lumens that can dim continuously via the app or manually using five step buttons.
Able to fit in your pocket, they are made from a rugged aluminum body that is both waterproof and shock-resistant. High CRI of 95+/- produces balance and flawless skin tones, says Joby.
Additional cold shoe mounts on the Beamo casing allow other accessories to be attached to the rig or other Beamo LEDs. It also has on-board buttons and status lights for being used as a standalone LED. Download the myJOBY app for additional lighting effects.
The Beamo LED is the first mobile LED to feature wireless charging, while Beamo Mini is magnetic, making it easier to light up your shot.
The Wavo (US$79.95) and Wavo Mobile ($39.95) are unidirectional, high quality, and shock-isolated mics that replace the internal camera mic with a quality, wind-resistant audio result. Ideally sized for mobile and mirrorless hardware, Wavo Mobile comes with a travel case.
The Super Cardioid polar pattern focuses the audio capture on the subject's voice, avoiding unwanted ambient sounds from crowds or environments. They also feature shock isolation, designed with Hytrel to maximize strength and flexibility. Both come with TRS and TRRS cables for mobile and camera use. Connections via a locking cold shoe mount and a direct ¼ 20 mount attaches the Wavo series directly onto an audio stand.
There's also the StandPoint for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4 XL. Available for US$39.95, thephone case for iPhone 11 and Pixel 4 is designed to capture and view hands-free content. With built-in aluminum tripod legs, the case supports hands-free content creation, sharing, and viewing, and can remain on your phone, 24/7. Adjust the legs to multiple angles; when you're not using the tripod, the legs fold away into the case without any edges. Made of polycarbonate, the case also protects your phone against knocks and bumps. Fold the legs out of the way and you can still charge the phone wirelessly.
