The BallPod provides a great solution for a well-known problem: how do you stabilise your camera or smartphone to get shake-free shots? In many environments, common tripods fail. The BallPod works everywhere. He simply kneads into the shape of any type of surface to provide maximum stability. BallPod loves to help out. He loves being to be used on a timer to get the whole group in shot or just as a "selfie". He loves holding your camera where other tripods cannot - on fence posts, walls, rocks - anything you can test him with (Although he does get frightened near scissor blades, knives and sharp things). He loves it on slippy slidey surfaces and BallPod loves to hold your camera in whatever angle you want on uneven surfaces, slanting surfaces or just to provide extra stability on a flat surface. BallPod loves all camera manufacturers like Canon, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung & Co and any smartphone or tablet with a tripod adapter. At 298 grams and the size of a small orange, the BallPod neatly fits into any bag or backpack. He comes equipped with a standard 1/4 inch tripod mount that will fit to threads of most cameras and smartphone adapters.
