Review of Joby Gorillapod SLR Tripod

The Joby Gorrilapod is a fantastic and versatile tripod!

Advantages: rubberised joints and feet, detachable camera sleeve, hang from anywhere
Disadvantages: quite pricey, easy to loose sleeve.

This great product has given me not only hours more fun with my camera, but has allowed me to take some awesome footage without the need for a cameraman. Hang it upside down from a tree, off the side of a person's arm or attach it to the front handle-bars ...
