If you have a compact camera, as is shown, that Ultrapod is kind of handy. I've had one for about 25 years, even though I quit using compact cameras.

Yes Bob, works for me. FWIW, they make a "big brother" model that I use with my DSLR...didn't bother posting pic, but you get the idea. BTW, I have no affiliation w Ultrapod, other than a customer.

Cheers,
jim

The Gorillapod Original or Magnetic weigh just 1.6oz http://joby.com/gorillapod/original/specs.

And they can be attached to almost anything http://www.product-reviews.net/wp-content/userimages/GorillaPod.jpg.

Why bring a tripod when you can MAKE one? on 02/07/2011 20:22:47 MST Print View

Tripod

I spent a few days off-trail in Arkansas a couple of years ago and forgot my tripod. Spent a half hour making this one.

Here's the picture I got for my effort:
