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 this Gorillapod Focus tripod is worth a camera assistant's salary when you need a stable mount for your camera. Whether you're trying to get yourself into the shot, or taking time-lapse images, or shooting in low/no light, the extremely portable Gorillapod Focus 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 Focus is designed for professional DSLRs with fast zoom lenses, but it also can accommodate other items like consumer camcorders weighing up to 11 lbs.
