Joby Gorillapod Super-Flexible Camera Tripods

Want better, clearer photos without handheld shake -- but don't want to lug around a clumsy tripod? Even a mini-pod won't work well in the field, with rough ground and irregular environments.

Instead, try the Joby Gorillapod, with flexible bendable legs. It's easy and fun to pose, with legs that bend and rotate 360 degrees, and stays steady with rubberized ring and foot grips. You can set it up standing on rough surfaces, or wrap and hang it to take advantage of vertical objects like trees or doors.

The Gorillapod available in three sizes:

- The Gorillapod Original is for compact digital cameras up to 9.7 ounces ($24.95) -- now available in 6 bright colors. It travels easily in your bag at under 10 inches long and 1.6 ounces. Just screw your camera into the mount, or use the slim-line camera attachment to snap in to the quick-release lock ring.

- The Gorillapod SLR is for lightweight SLR cameras and camcorders up to 1.75 pounds ($44.95).

- The Gorillapod SLR-ZOOM is for heavier pro cameras up to 6.5 pounds ($54.95). It includes a universal 1/4-inch tripod screw plus a 3/8-inch adapter screw.
