Over the years I’ve tried a number of GorillaPods.
Cheap ones break quickly. Higher quality versions are a bit heavy and bulky.
A salesman at the Camera Store in Calgary recommended this alternative. I love it. Cheaper than a GorillaPod and far more durable. It’s light and compact for travel.
I’m using it with my Elf camera and Vixia camcorder. It wraps around either in their travel cases on my hip.
Click PLAY or watch how it can be used on YouTube. That’s the very similar Octopod.
