hi guys
I shot with a D300
I recieved a gorillapod as a gift
I was veeeery skeptical. I feared it would be too soft or weak
then i went in london only with hand luggage in the plane. No way to take the big tripod with me.
So i took the gorillapod
and this amazing bluehour came...and i attached my camera to it...hanging from a 20th floors balcony.

I shot this one

of course the camera's "rope" was around my neck. but seeing it hangin in the void was fearsome!
In the end i say: long life to gorillapods
there are situations where they are the only tool that can make your day!
anyone had some similar experience with those wierd accessories?

PS that one was the only occasion i used the gorillapod. I keep bringing the huge tripod with me all the time
