I'm very excited because I just purchased a Joby Gorillapod!!!! (see image to the left - the image is not mine, but it is identical to my Gorillapod). I had been wanting one for a while, but after I read about another Dreamstime user, Yhca, using a Gorillapod, I definitely wanted to try using one! ( See Yhca's blog article here)
It's my very first tripod! I'm looking forward to using it - it fits my camera, a Sony CyberShot DSC-W70 very well, and it's so compact that it fits in my little camera case. It is a very portable little tripod.
