Gorillapods are flexible, multi-jointed camera tripods that can be bent around door handles, tree limbs and other objects.
Now comes the Gorillapod Micro, a simpler, sleeker model that can remain attached to a camera all the time. The Micro has three zinc alloy legs that can grip uneven surfaces with their rubberized feet.
The legs, though not multi-jointed, fan out from an aluminum positioning ball that allows 36 degrees of movement in any direction.
The Micro screws into the tripod plate that’s standard on most cameras. Collapsed, the legs hug the camera, so the whole thing fits in all but the tightest camera pouches.
The tripod comes in two sizes, the Micro 250 for smaller cameras weighing up to 8.8 ounces; and the Micro 800 for cameras weighing up to 28.2 ounces.
Gorillapod Micro 250 costs $19.95; Micro 800 costs $29.95. Info: www.joby.com.
