I'm just a keep-it-fast full-auto-snaps shooter, and have really liked my Panasonic TS3 point-n-shoot... small, tough, dust/wet-proof, decent enough pics and video...

I also really like shooting with my GoPro! I really like the simplicity, and the convenience of being able to mount it in different ways. I often use timelapse to shoot us climbing just to (hopefully) get a single good shot from a "3rd-person" perspective, ie NOT ass or top-of-head like usual :)

Tripod-wise I just use a Gorillapod Original...

I have a Canon Eos M which I bought with great ambition and the hope of better video, but Magic Lantern for the M still seems problematic, and I'm not yet keen to babysit the thing everywhere... but I'm trying!

(I really want one of those Peak Designs Capture Pro clips but I just can't make myself spend $80 on one...)

I personally never felt the need to use a monopod (selfie-stick) with any S.A.C. I own - they all have a wide angle lens (unlike most smartphones or cameras), so even if you only hold it one arm length away, you still get plenty of background, where with a normal lens, your face would take up the complete frame.

I personally find the JOBY Gorillapod way more versatile than any tripod (or monopod with a tripod-foot). You can mount it virtually anywhere, since you can either bend the legs around certain objects to grip, or form a "hook" out of the legs.

You can also use it as a grip, if that was your initial reason to think about buying a monopod.

The monopod you linked looks decent, so if I couldn't spark your interest in something different, you can still go with it ;)

  • I'm probably posting a cliche photography gift here but I absolutely love mine: Lens Mug


  • Can't go wrong with a BlackRapid Strap


  • If your brother takes a lot of landscapes and doesn't already have this must have tool in his gear which he should: Camera Remote Timer


  • If he's always on the go and seems struggle w/ carrying his tripod everywhere, I recommend getting him a Gorilla Pod

  • If he doesn't already have a great backpack for travelling while he is shooting his landscapes, I recommend Amazons Backpack for holding his gear. It's essentially a generic version of Canon's basic backpack.


    You can also find some fairly cheap "like new" film cameras on Craigslist along with some film.
    Film cameras are the best and it will probably be very nostalgic to the person you are gifting it to.


    I'm making the assumption that he has a Canon DSLR but you can find most of this gear if he has something like a Nikon, Sony, etc... One thing I love to receive to as a photography gift is more batteries! I use to shoot a lot of landscapes and I could never have enough of these.

    Anyways, hopefully you find something for your brother! Good luck!

I use this on my desk mounted with one of these. That's it!

u/zdwolfe · 2 pointsr/WeatherGifs

I used a GoPro Hero 4 Silver on Video Time-lapse mode, set for 5 second intervals at 4K.

I was backpacking at the time, so I was using a small flexible tripod instead of a full tripod.

Something like this:

No stitching, just a little bit of rotation using GoPro studio because I had the camera angled a little goofy.

u/asymptomatic · 1 pointr/Kayaking

I went to buy a GoPro the other day. I left the store with a Gorillapod instead. I grabbed this old waterproof digital camera I had bought 2nd hand for less than 100 bucks a couple of years ago and headed out onto the water.

This was the result.

I was quite pleased. I didn't even know the camera was capable of "HD" video.

I am now so glad I didn't spend a chunk of money on a GoPro. Sure, it's a better camera...but I'm perfectly happy with what I already had.

Pure luck: The Gorillapod tripod legs actually clip into the combing of the kayak as if the boat and tripod were designed for each other. Great for those times when I don't use a spray skirt. For the times when I do, I bought this!

u/TheStaet · 1 pointr/needadvice

I wouldn't go with a tablet. Screen capture software has been historically terrible on all things mobile. Personally, I'd ditch the tablet and buy a camcorder and tripod with a large drawing pad.

What I'd consider getting:
Flip UltraHD: Compact, easy to grab files off of, and TAKES AA BATTERIES

Gorillapod: Flexible for this kind of application.

u/fire_spark · 1 pointr/M43

Thanks for your input. I currently have one of the original small gorillapod (this: https://smile.amazon.de/dp/B0087FFTT2/ref=dp_cerb_1) and while it does work fine for some small projects, outdoors it's a bit hard to use (specially for long exposure/timelapse). That might also be due to this specific model not able to handle the weight of the GX9 well.

Do you have any specific model that you use/like?

u/TheSpecificRandomer · 1 pointr/xboxone

Although this may not be exactly what you're looking for, but here's a support page about using the sensor with a tripod since it has a standard 1/4"-20 mount:

https://support.oculus.com/help/oculus/1712159742364822/?ref=hc_fnav

As for ... welll... mounts to place it on. Perhaps that gorilla tripod?

EDIT: Found an amazon link for it http://www.amazon.com/JOBY-GorillaPod-Original-Black-Charcoal/dp/B0087FFTT2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1458949316&sr=8-3&keywords=gorilla+pod+joby

but it costs just as much as the one you linked

u/Just_da_fax · 1 pointr/Outdoors

I'm on my second version of this model; works good but always seems to come apart at the weak spot between the top joint and the 'attach to camera' joint. I wonder if this is a little more robust?

Light stands or standard camera tripods work fine but yeah, nothing's going to make moving them easy.

Having a pair of GorillaPods (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Joby-GorillaPod-Original-Tripod-Charcoal/dp/B0087FFTT2/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1495786565&sr=1-7&keywords=flexible+tripod) or cheap alternatives (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rollei-Monkey-Flexible-Tripod-Camcorder/dp/B00NFWN3YK/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1495786565&sr=1-4&keywords=flexible+tripod) might make angles easier when using them on the ground OR allow you to take advantage of parts of the room to gain height.

Bring some tape / reusable cable ties to give you options for running the sync cable as if you do place them on the ground it will be pretty essential.

u/drodin · 1 pointr/tennis

For tripod solutions I recommend the GorillaPod. The flexible legs can be weaved into a chain link fence to mount your camera/phone anywhere inside the court. I've owned one for a year with no issues and the design is really simple so nothing can really break.
