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.

At PMA, Gitzo, a world leading manufacturer of high-end, precision supports for the photo and video markets, will be showing off its line of aluminum Series 2 tripods. Sure to turn heads with new and improved features, a sleek matte black finish and new materials that significantly reduce the overall weight when compared to regular aluminum, Gitzo’s innovative Series 2 tripods set a standard for performance and give aluminum based supports another leg up! The two tripods revamp the traditional and highly successful Gitzo aluminum range with a revolutionary design. While the competition uses 0.8mm or 1.00mm tubes to reduce weight, they’re unfortunately at the same time compromising overall stability.
