More and more, I find myself needing a Quick tripod but not wanting to carry my Tripod. So, after reading about it and seeing it in person at the 2006 Photo Plus Expo, I got the new Joby Gorillapod by Joby.
It's light, sturdy and allows me to put my ball head from my Tripod on it. This first time using it was a little nervous but it worked out fine (I tried it at the show with a much heavier camera and Lens)
Can't wait to use it on the street!
