The Gomite Tiltpod is as Compact as Your Camera
If you use a point-and-shoot camera and prefer to keep things nice and light then you're probably familiar with how much of a pain it can be to carry a tripod. Even a small one can put a serious cramp in your style, especially if you're not carrying a bag.
The Gomite Tiltpod is designed to fit in your pocket easily and give you a usable balancing surface for your camera that you can have on hand at all times. It doesn't look like much, but this grippy magnetic material can hold your camera fairly steady on a variety of surfaces.
One of the best features of the Tiltpod is its compact size. It attaches to your wrist strap and when you're not using it, the Tiltpod can simply slide into your pocket along with your camera.
You can pick up the Tiltpod directly from Gomite for $18.
