Funky tripods

I couldn’t attend PMA with the rest of the crew this year, but amidst the big camera announcements, they spied some funky accessories:

  • The MonsterPod doesn’t suck–literally or figuratively. Rather, its “Viscoelastic Morphing Polymer Super Grip Base” (three times fast, please) sticks onto just about any surface. I wonder if you can stick it to The Man…
  • The Joby Gorrilapod takes a different approach, wrapping its prehensile legs around all kinds of things (including the human head). [Via]

I recently went a slightly simpler route myself, opting for a tiny, lightweight Manfrotto, the better to irritate dinner companions when going for those natural light shots.

    MonsterPod looks really cool. If I can stick it to a wall, which the GorillaPod couldn’t, sounds like a great option for other angles or uneven surfaces. I will try one, why not?
