There are times, probably more frequent than you're willing to admit, that you can't do it all by yourself. This applies to photography (or videography) as often as anything else. That's why the Gorillapod SLR-Zoom tripod is worth a camera assistant's salary when you need a stable mounting for your camera. Whether you're trying to get yourself into the shot, or taking time-lapse images, or shooting in low/no light, this extremely portable Gorillapod will attach itself to almost any convenient fixed object and hold your camera rock-steady.
With rubberized ring and foot grips, the tripod stays secure despite rough treatment. The Gorillapod SLR-Zoom is designed for digital SLR-sized cameras with zoom lenses, but it also can accommodate other items like consumer camcorders weighing up to 6.6 lbs.
