Just like when you ask for a Kleenex when you want to blow your nose, the Gorillapod brand has become synonymous with those multi-limbed mini tripods that let you mount your camera almost anywhere. But Fotopro’s new RM-110 flexible tripod, um, thingy… nicknamed the ‘Spide’ (there’s no r) looks like a worthy challenger to the throne.
Like the Gorillapods, the RM-110 has three articulating limbs coming off of a plate with a standard tripod mount, but the individual points of articulation on each arm can be tightened with a screwdriver to lock them down. Not only does it ensure your camera doesn’t move, but it also lets it support heavier mid-range DSLRs as well. They also come with four different sets of feet including spikes, suction cups, magnets and rubber allowing it to work on any surface, and it’s expected to be available sometime in the third quarter of this year for about $60.
