Every Camwhore Needs a QuikPod Tripod

Posted on Posted in Photography, Toys & Gadgets

Now here’s an incredibly useful camera accessory when you want to take self-portraits but do not want to lug around a heavy tripod nor ask for a stranger to take your photo. The QuikPod tripod is basically a compact rod that allows you to attach your camera on one end. Activate your camera’s 10-second timer, extend the rod, and you can take a good picture of yourself and your background without the help of a stranger. No annoying close-ups, and no more snaps of your extended arms within the frame. You can also use the QuikPod to shoot above crowds at concerts or at hard-to-reach places like underneath cars.

The QuikPod is available on Amazon and the QuikPod website for $24.95, which is too expensive for a cheapskate like me. I think I’ll wait til CD-R King makes a QuikPod ripoff! I bought a GorillaPod fakie from CD-R king for 180 pesos and it works just as well as the original one by Joby!
