Capture Group Shots in a Flash

They were the perfect pictures. Mementos from a backpacking trip you took with your friends that you'll never forget. You snapped shots in locations you probably won't have the opportunity to see again with a group of buddies that have since grown up. Those pictures captured an experience and a feeling you cannot recreate, but there's just one problem with them: You're not in any of them!

You'll never miss out on being a part of the action again when you fix this innovative tripod to your digital camera. The first truly pocketable camera support, the Tiltpod attaches to your camera's wrist strap so you're always ready to capture moments in a flash. No more digging through your bag for a tripod, and no more precarious balancing of your expensive digital camera. The Tiltpod's compact design features a quick-connect magnetic ball pivot whose rounded head screws into your camera's tripod socket and magnetically connects to the base for an instant hold at just about any angle. The magnetic pivot allows you to quickly adjust the camera to get perfectly framed shots and the underside of the Tiltpod base is made of a grippy material, so it's made to go where you go. Since the base holds a rare earth magnetic, it also helps it stick to inclined metal surfaces like car hoods, metal fence posts, or refrigerator doors without the risk of erasing your memory card. Made in China.

Notes
Most compact digital cameras will work with the tiltpod. Some unusually large digital compacts may have limited range of motion or require external support. The tiltpod is not compatible with interchangeable lens cameras, like full-size DSLRs, micro 4/3s, or Sony NEX cameras. The lenses used on these cameras are too heavy for the compact tiltpod base.

      We are always trying to take group photos and this little contraption really helps to stabilize the camera to take a picture! Great and compact. I like that you can just hang it from your camera all the time. Happy with this product!

          Taking self portraits is HARD, y'all! This works great! I have perched this on both level and unlevel surfaces and it's worked like a champ. I can't wait to take it on a trip and I want one for my iPhone.

            I like cool stuff that is off the path unusual and functional, I loved this as a gift. It is a unique compact tripod substitute accessory for a small camera or video that travels and from what I've experienced functions extremely well. It isn't a full blown tripod but the magnetic base has a very strong magnet(I think rare earth metal) and the non slip rubber really helps grip on non-metallic surfaces. The tilt it provide is limited but for quick steady snap shot or third person "can you take a picture of us" usage this is your gadget.

                I love it! It works for small cameras only so I wouldn't recommend it if you have a big, professional camera. It was easy to use and keeps my camera from falling all the time.

                        Erin found this little device that makes taking the perfect photo a snap! We love that the Tiltpod is lightweight, super-portable, and magnetic. Would you carry it with you on your next outing, or gift it to your favorite shutter bug?

                        finally a reasonable priced tripod, but you would have to have something to set it on considering that it doesn't have legs.

                        My camera is small, but there has never been a tripod small enough to keep with me so I miss a lot of great shots - especially those low light pics when stability is critical. This solves that problem!

                        very cool. would make a great gift. Don't have one, but think I need one!

                        Love it! I like the way it just 'pops' on and off in an instant! No clunky tripod legs to adjust!

                        Great solution! How many times have I balanced the camera on a rock, stack of credit cards,...? Great, inexpensive, portable idea - I'll take several for myself and as gifts.

                        Good idea.

                        wouldn't use it- but seems like a good idea

                        Great question, Natalie! The Tiltpod's base holds a rare earth magnet that won't interfere with how the camera works or erase your memory card.

                        I like that it attaches to the camera so you don't have to remember.

                        Looks very useful, but it's not made in the USA.

                        What a great idea! And the price is right. Make it in the US, and I'll buy it!

                        Perfect! Love that I don't have to "balance" our camera!

                        Cool piece, but I have seen this in other places.

                        If it works, could be very handy!

                        Definitely a plus for camera buffs. Small and the price is right!

                        Been using mine for two months now, and loving it. The surface is grippy enough that you don't need a flat surface. I've used it on rocks, wood, plastic, and metal with the magnet. Makes it a lot easier to take those self-portrait shots anywhere.

                        Sounds great - will the magnet not mess with the camera's computer or memory?

                        Deborah, the Tiltpod's base holds a rare earth magnet that won't interfere with how the camera works or erase your memory card. Thanks for asking; it's an important bit of information!

                        Fantastic idea. This would be perfect for anyone with children. I have a million pictures of my little guy but I'm not in any of them.

                        don't really get how it would stay flat on a surface but the price is right that i'd be willing to try it out!

                        I thumbsuped it, cause I like the idea- but I'm not sure it would be more effective than a beanbag.
