DIY Gorillapod

DIY Gorillapod with parts from Home Depot with a Cannon HV10 attached.

I like to shoot video, but I rarely ever plan my outings – so this means I’m either carrying a lot of gear, or I’m always ill prepared. I was pleased to stumble upon some instructions for building a Gorillapod and a String-tripod/monopod – both small, light and incredibly useful tools for shooting video/film/stills gorilla guerilla stile.

There is a plethora of great instructable camera gear. My favorites so far:

Check out the Film and Video Group at Instructables for more. I took a quick trip to Home Depot yesterday and made the Gorillapod and the String Monopod, for $14 – combined!
