A Useful Third Hand - Quik Pod for DSLRs
Want a self-portrait but don't have a tripod or someone to take the photo for you? Quik Pod for DSLRs is your answer.
This second generation of the original Quik Pod is new and improved, and can stretch up to 4.4 feet (1.3 meters) and comes with comfortable accessories such as a gel pad to brace it against your body. It also works well for the over-the-crowd shots when you want a unique perspective.
When collapsed, the pod is very compact and takes up a very reasonable 18 inches (135 cm) and weighs only 9 ounces (250 g). Although it's rated for up to a 2 lbs (1000 g) load, a YouTube video shows it holding an amazing 28 lbs (12.7 kg) steel block!
