In the picture - Fromm Works have today announced the release of the Quik Pod, a compact extendable tripod allowing photographers to include themselves in the picture.
With Quik Pod no one is left out of the picture, not even the photographer! Quik Pod, the compact lightweight (less than 3.5 ounces) handheld extendable tripod converts from handheld to table-top use for larger group photos. The Quik Pod can be used with point and shoot, DSLR and waterproof cameras. It comes with a built in self-positioning mirror to center each shot. This allows the photographer to be included in photos and videos without asking strangers to operate their camera. The photographer has control rather than handing it (their camera!) over to a stranger.
For larger cameras check out the Quik Pod DSLR for cameras and camcorders up to 2lbs in weight. The Quik Pod DSLR converts from handheld to monopod in seconds and extends the reach by 53in. Perfect for paparazzi moments.
Quik Pod was voted one of the favourite, perfect travel gadgets by MSN. Families and people on vacation will appreciate this versatile tool for taking better pictures and videos. Fully extended Quik Pod can be used for self-portraits or for overhead shots at parades and concerts. When not in use it fits easily into your pocket or purse!
Both the point and shoot as well as DSLR model attach to any camera or camcorder using a standard tripod socket.
Dealers include Amazon.com, J&R, Adorama, B&H, Calumet Photographic, QVC, Magellan's and Hammacher-Schlemmer.
The Quik Pod is available now at a RRP of $24.95 (around £13). A Quik Pod DSLR is also available at a RRP of $49.95 (around £25).
