The MOJO Mobile Journalism tool is a backpack with a built-in stand that functions as a camera holder, making it a unique and innovative solution for the new generation of journalists, particularly those who work solo.
The tool has an extendable arm so the camera can be moved around and can be packed up to fit inside the backpack, making it easy to carry and dump on the ground when necessary.
