Gorillapod: A dog's point of view

This is Oscar, taking photos with the help of a Gorillapod, the crazy-looking tripod that attaches to almost anything.

I'm not sure he's really enjoying this project, but admit it, he looks adorable here.

Okay, Oscar is not my dog; he belongs to Jenny Cisney, an information designer at Kodak.com who posted these photos on Kodak's A Thousand Words blog. But now I know what my dog is dressing up as next Halloween -- dog paparazzi..

Thanks for the tip from "puddingtain.".

(Note: Stuart wrote about the Gorillapod a while back, but I unfortunately deleted his post in a misguided attempt to fix a glitch in our feeds. In my own defense: I didn't know what I was doing.)

If it's any help, here's the text from the earlier post on gorillapods. I flagged 'keep new' on bloglines...

BTW don't you keep back-ups? ;-P

Readers in the UK will find no end of amusement from the name of the manufacturers of this product. Camera accessory company, JOBY (teehee!), have designed a great camera tripod for on the move. I am terrible at taking photos; I must have the shakiest hands on the planet. Every photo is a blur, and it's even worse when I try to take a photo of me and my partner with my arm extended pointing the camera toward us. I seem to like only taking pictures of mainly myself, or should I say, my forehead. The gorrilapod solves all these problems by having unique bendable legs that can be wrapped around any object, making a tripod out of almost anything.

The gorrilapod has been around for a few months now, but I thought I should bring it up as JOBY (I need to grow up!) have recently released the gorrilapodSLR, which as the name suggests is a version for SLR cameras. This version allows the attachment of compact video cameras too.

The standard gorrilapod can be bought from JOBY directly for $24.95, or (this is a great idea) if you chose not to have it in plastic packaging, $21.95. The gorrilapodSLR follows a similar pricing strategy of $54.95 or $49.95 for the environment friendly version.

How is the camera triggered or is it just for show?

adorable!
i LOVE your amazing site!
