Useful piece of gear for a lightweight tripod solution on 02/10/2013 12:40:19 MST Print View

I saw this on another blog last night and immediately thought of posting this here. When I searched for it by name to make sure that I wasn't going to make a duplicate thread there was already one in the "Gear" forum. Though since this can almost be viewed as a niche piece of photography gear I figured that I would post about it here as well. Below is a link to the Kickstarter page where you can view the item. Long story short it takes the treking poles most of us carry anyway and converts them into a stable tripod.

As a disclaimer I have no affiliation with this product, my motivation is that I just really want one myself and don't really have a way to acquire one unless the project gets funded. I've already pledged for a whole enchilada myself.

I've been editing the original post trying to figure out from other messages on the boards on how to get a hyperlink inserted. Realizing that it just wasn't working for me I just pasted the address and people will have to copy and paste the address.

"Funding Canceled
Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator 1 day ago. "

Or so it says on the site. Too bad, looked interesting.

It looks like it could be a reasonable DIY project.
