Gorillapod - handy flexible tripod - which works!,
This review is from: Joby GorillaPod SLR-Zoom Tripod for SLR Cameras (Electronics)
It really does work! I've had mine wrapped around the banisters, camera hanging over the side of the stairs, and it was tight and secure.
The Gorillapod comes with a screw adapter giving you the ability to add a tripod head of your choice, which allows for more flexibility.
I'd recommend buying the *SLR-Zoom* version if you have any kind of SLR or even bridge/hybrid camera, even if it doesn't exceed the weight limit of the *SLR* version. Once you add a tripod head, flash, maybe a bigger lens or lens extensions/filters, it adds quite a bit of weight. Better to be on the safe side!
Great gadget to stuff in your bag for when a larger tripod just isn't practical.
