If you’re the photographer in the family the best photo of yourself is likely on your driver’s license. With the Quik Pod, the world’s first handheld extendable tripod, the days of holding out your arm only to get poor picture results are over. No more asking strangers for help. A person simply holds the extended Quik Pod with camera attached and properly framed photos and videos are captured without the help of strangers. The Quik Pod is made of sturdy polycarbonate and aluminum, weighs less than 3.5 ounces and comes with a built in self-positioning mirror to help frame each shot. Retailing for less than $30.00, the Quik Pod Pro+ includes a lightweight tripod leg adapter.

Quik Pod invention
The Quik Pod invention came to Wayne Fromm when he was traveling with his family. He was growing tired of asking strangers to operate his camera for family photos. Fromm has invented and marketed nearly fifty successful commercial products and is particularly known for his toy creations including Disney's Beauty and the Beast Talking Mirror. Over one hundred prototypes were created before he successfully manufactured the world's first pocket size extendable, handheld tripod for digital cameras and camcorders, the Quik Pod.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
