""The Original Gorillapod is the lightest and most versatile camera…"
"The Original Gorillapod is the lightest and most versatile camera tripod available today. Featuring over two dozen flexible leg joints that bend and rotate, the Gorillapod will firmly secure your compact digital camera (or SLR - it comes in 2 sizes) to virtually any surface - anywhere and everywhere!
The Gorillapod is the ideal camera accessory for photographers on the go. Throw it in your pocket or backpack and you'll be ready for your next adventure! While the Gorillapod serves all the functions of a traditional camera tripod - steadying your camera under low-light conditions, taking timed group shots, etc. - it is the only tripod malleable enough to provide you with the perfect shot while wrapped around a tree branch, hanging from a pole, or perched on a jagged rock. The possibilities are endless!!"
We ended up buying 2 of these for DH as he lost the first one while camping in Wales and loved it so much he wanted another. It really is a fab little device. The compact camera version is about 15cms long and squishes up flat to fit in pockets and bags while out. When in use, the bendy legs will adapt to any surface so you can stand your camera on an uneven boulder or even hang it from a tree to get the best shot. Much better than normal tripods which only really work on perfectly flat surfaces. And it's nice and cheap. Well worth every pennyRead moreLess
