The Joby GorillaPod is a new lightweight tripod which allows you to put yourself in the picture.

Designed for smaller, lightweight cameras, its innovative design allows placement in a variety of places that traditional tripods just can't manage. The three flexible legs grip, twist and bend allowing you to use the surrounding environment …..anything from trees to ski poles to stage your perfect shot!

Each of the grippy ball & socket joints on the legs is able to bend and rotate 360 degrees. The base joints also have larger grips, so the tripod can stand in the traditional manner without slipping.

It uses the traditional 1/4-inch screw, is 150mm (5.9 inches) in height and weighs 45g (1.6oz) It retails for £19.95.
