    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else, so sorry if I missed it (I did a search and everything!)

    I've just seen this site: http://www.quikpod.com/Home.asp about this little lightweight tripod that is designed to be hand held (well see the site and you'll get the picture) - it comes with little feet inside the bottom so you can stand it up too. Is this a good little cheap bit of useful kit, or am I being sucked in to the gimmick? Can be bought on Play.com fairly cheaply. I know it's not a good thing for professionals, but it could come in handy?

    Any thoughts?

    Hmm - only for compact cameras I think, where it could come in quite useful. There's lots of mini-tripods out there (and gorillapods etc).

    Gah! Just had the speakers cranked up from playing the 360 and the annoying TV capture they have running on that site nearly gave me a heart attack!

    Make sure you turn your speakers down (or off) before clicking :)
