    Got to the fireworks tonight and noticed that the mounting plate on my Manfrotto tripod was missing. After much grumbling and my wife and I debating whether I could get to the house and back before the fireworks started (and with a "fine, go get it" that clearly meant "fine, go get it and I'll start filling out those divorce papers because I'm so sick of you and that camera"), I gave up.

    Then I looked at my gorillapod and was like... hmmmmmm... I wonder.

    Sure enough, I managed to wrap that sucker around the head of my tripod and it wound up making an excellent replacement mounting plate. :lmao:

    Too bad I totally boned all the fireworks pictures. :mrgreen: (it's not that bad, but they're nowhere near what I was hoping for because I made a critical mistake)

    Anyway... gorillapod... the new mounting plate for your manfrotto tripod! Now available in stores! <chuckle>

    Awesome idea! A shame about the pics though.

    Necessity, the mother of all inventions.

    Good thought about using a gorillapod in that manner and I am sure the pics came out better than you say. We're all our own worst critics at times.

    Smart move on not pushing it with the wife. My lady and I often chuckle about my "obsessions" (hobbies to you and I).
