The cutest photography accessory…

If you don’t want to carry a tripod for your camera around with you then there is an exciting and cute alternative…the Joby ‘Gorillapod’. Think a tripod with flexible legs and you begin to get the idea. Mine was given to me by my other half on the basis that it was something related to photography that was not only useful, but cute too! Here’s one in action…

My Gorrillapod actually gets far more use as a stand for an external flash. I pop my flash on it and then I can attach it almost anywhere, the top of a door, up a tree, even on someone’s head! It’s a great off-camera flash stand that fits neatly into an average sized camera bag. It’s not a sturdy as a good tripod, but then when did you last see a tripod up a tree?
