A unique, compact camera support - the Joby Gorillapod firmly secures your camera to just about anything — anywhere and everywhere! Each Gorillapod is made up of 30 or more fully articulating ball-and-socket joints. You can bend and twist them into any shape, and they'll always keep your camera steady! The Gorillapod comes in three sizes: Gorillapod SLR-ZOOM, Gorillapod Original, and Gorillapod SLR.

Strengths: -- inexpensive
-- has a tiny, quick-release mounting plate that can be locked to tripod
-- can be used as a toy in situations of emergency boredom
Weaknesses: -- wouldn't put anything other than a little point-and-shoot camera on it
Tiny, featherweight, infinitely adaptable, this little gorillapod will allow you to use any imaginable object or surface as a mount for your point-and-shoot. I have used it on car roofs, fence rails, tree limbs, handlebars and rafters. Weighs about as much as an energy bar and fits into a cyclist's jersey pocket almost as easily.
P.S. I'm an actual consumer (not a corporate shill)
