Getting Pictures Off The Ground

 
Sunpak Flexpod Gripper Mini Tripod
 
Tired of setting the camera on wet rocks, damp ground, soaking branches, and crumbling snow? This little $14 abstract tripod solves dozens of problems in the field. Planting my camera atop this eight inch tripod with stick'em-like legs opened up a whole new world of opportunities, especially with night photography.

Often while biking I will just leave the tripod attached to the camera. It dangles below the camera which hangs around my shoulder and tucks nicely into my coat. The base attachment quick release feature allows the tripod to be stowed in a back or hydration pack with ease.

The Sunpak FlexPod Gripper is a versatile miniature tripod that's appropriate for light point and shoot style cameras. Load ratings state a maximum one pound load. In practical terms, the FlexPod is appropriate for use with small point and shoot and video cameras that fit in a shirt pocket or purse. From horizontals to tricky verticals, you can expect such a camera to be able to be situated any way you like safely when using the FlexPod Gripper.

Constructed with a metal core wrapped with a polymer skin, the FlexPod is rather sturdy and has good 'stiction' to nearly anything you can think of...fences, poles, and tree branches are all acceptable for the FlexPod Gripper, and of course it can be used as a traditional table-top tripod, too.



Here's some other features:

• Lightweight and flexible multi-purpose solution

• Aluminum core upon triangular leg segments

• Legs stick to variety of surfaces

• Simple single-lock ball head with quick release mechanism
