    Has anyone purchased the Quick Pod? I saw it on the website and I wanted a little review if available. It looks like it would help to have a more steady shot. Anyone recommend buying one?

    Is that the one that looks like a bean bag with a sticky pad on the bottom?

    Not just no but H#$$ no. There is a reason I'm behind the camera. That keeps my face from being in front of the camera. I definately do not want an extension of my arm to take photos of myself. :lol:

    It's a cool invention for point and shoot photos, but I wouldn't want one either.

    If it keeps people from taking self-portraits in the mirror, the person who invented this deserves a medal.

    DISREGARD THE HANDHELD!!! The handheld is CRAP! I KNOW!

    I would use it as the MONOPOD feature

    http://www.quikpod.com/dslr.asp MONOPOD.

    Anyone suggest using that? It looks like a more mobile tripod. So you can take a quick steady picture. It even has a tripod attachment on the bottom to actually use it as a tripod. I was wondering if anyone has used or heard of reviews for it?

    Pretty cheap $30 for the pro edition. (Comes w/ tripod attachment)

    :thumbup: ?

    haha... true but now that you see what I want to use it for. What do you think? I saw it on "Thephotoforum.com" website. So I thought maybe someone here at least knew about it.

    I think that people that go to that kind of lengths to shoot their own photos need therapy.
    This product will be BIG in Japan.

    For me, if you want a monopod, get a monopod. If you want to shoot up high, reach up using your arms!!! With a DSLR, you need to focus the shot before pressing the shutter release, and how are you supposed to do that if the camera is 4ft above your reach? Also, 2lbs isn't all that heavy, only 900g, which isn't even the weight of a Nikon D80 with an 18-70mm lens.

    For me, I just can't see the use of one. A "proper" monopod would be much better built and would generally be nicer to use.

    Plus, those people in the advert REALLY annoyed me. :lmao:
