The QuikPod Handheld Convertible Tripod is a neat little gadget that will help you take better photos. It fits any still or video camera that has a tripod socket. The quickpod folds up small so it can fit in your pocket or purse. You attach your camera to it and extend the arm, allowing you to take great photos of yourself (better than just holding your arm out) or you can hold your camera well above crowds or other objects. Now you no longer have to ask strangers to take your picture, you can do it yourself; ideal if traveling places where you don’t speak the language.
