Monsterpod – where no tripod has gone before…



Ever thought it would be great to capture the moment at a birthday party, looking down on the birthday cake as kids crammed in to blow out the candles? Or how cool it would be to take a picture from the inside bend of a curly slide as your kids came racing down? Meet the Monsterpod – either scenario would be a snap.

The Monsterpod is a gravity-defying tripod. Made of a viscoelastic polymer, the Monsterpod sticks to and peels off just about any surface. ‘Any surface’ is no exaggeration – the Monsterpod has been tested on brick walls, trees, marble, cement, steel, sheet rock, wire fences, metal poles, plate glass windows, upside down, in the heat, in the cold, on furniture, street lamps and on cars.

It’s simple to use and holds any camera up to 560 grams. It tilts and rotates to any angle and is compact enough to keep in your camera bag so you’ll never be short of angles for that perfect playground shot.

We have reviewed a similarly nifty tripod previously on Babyology – the Gorilla Pod, but by the sounds of it, the Monsterpod will cover shots of any of the kid’s tree climbing feats just as well as the Gorilla and do a whole lot more.

The Monsterpod is available from the Photojojo store and costs US$30. Photojojo ship to Australia (you may have visited them before to pick up their cute Photo Block kits).
