Yesterday, while I was at Walmart I picked myself up this tripod. This is the Joby GorillaPod. Basically, this holds you your camera for you, and you can use it virtually anywhere! How? because the legs actually bend and morph any way you choose! The legs are made of plastic balls, connected by stretchy rubber, and the balls roll around which makes bending easy, and there`s no chance for breakage! At first, I thought that since it is flexible, that my camera would weigh it down...nope! This baby is actually pretty strong! (I use a Sony HandyCam DCR-SR47, which weighs about 1-1.5 lbs.)
This is the smallest sized one out of I think 3. This has a screw (Which is removable and interchangeable) that holds 1/4" cameras. This size cost me $19 and some change, not bad at all!
As you can see in the last picture, I wrapped it around a drawer on my jewelry box and it didn`t budge at all while I filmed! I plan on trying this out, outside on my deck around one of the posts when I do my monthly favorites (if it`s not too cold).
But overall, I absolutely love this thing! It`s perfect if you don`t have a flat surface for a tripod (but you can make the legs straight if you want), and is very affordable and strong! If you`re looking for one, I suggest checking this out :)
