Thumbs up Not bad for a $10 tripod

I saw this thing posted on some site by a photographer who ordered a bunch of cheap backpacking camera pods. He liked this one out of all of them.



I figured, "What the heck. Only ten bucks lost if I don't like it."
Well, the guy was right. It is pretty slick and it even has a lockable slide-off quick release that you can leave attached to your camera! Fits in your pocket easily. Holds my Canon G9 quite well.

Off eBay: Mini tripod.

Yep, I keep a mini-gorilla pod in my tank-bag.

Have you seen the $2 DIY camera stabilizer? Bolt, washer, and string.

Sierra Cement: Good for skis, bad for knees.

G10 is nice. I've been happy with the G9 for now. Next might be a G10 and give her the G9.

Too bad about the shipping. Shipping out of the U.S. has gotten ridiculous of late. I inquired about shipping a helmet and some gear to England and it was close to $400. Cheaper to buy it there - almost. It's a joke at work to make up stuff on the UPS and FedEx websites and get a quote on "How much?" to get it there.

We bought a new lathe in engineering from an Asian country that was poorly made and would bind on the gibs. The U.S. importer in LA said it would be cheaper to buy a new lathe than to get the parts to fix the new defective one. Go figger! I need to go find out the status on that one...
