The elastic Monsterpod is a sticky solution for sticky photo situations. This versatile compact camera mount holds your camera when a tripod is unavailable or inappropriate and it can also steady your shot in low light conditions or for long exposures.
As unconventional as the Gorillapod (no relation), the Monsterpod resembles a small beanbag and is made of a viscoelastic polymer – basically sticky goo - with a swiveling standard tripod mount on the top.
Screw the Monsterpod to your camera and then press the Monsterpod onto nearly any surface. The sticky goo will grip tightly without leaving a mark. The manufacturers say the Monsterpod will stick to brick, glass, stone, and many more materials. It supports up to 20 ounces (0.6kg) and it will hold for up to ten minutes. To remove the Monsterpod, gently peel it off and store it in its carry case.
The Monsterpod is available from Photojojo for USD$30.
