There are two new Quik Pods sprouting from the backyard of inventor Wayne Fromm. The new models will be displayed at the upcoming PMA 2009, March 3-5, in Las Vegas.
The Quik Pod Pro+ Precision with universal 2-axis leveling adapter can be used for handheld and tabletop tripod use to keep your compact camera level at all times.
The other one, the Quik Pod Explorer is touted to be the longest compact handheld extendable tripod. It extends to 38.5″ (98 cm), and closes to 9″(23cm). This one is made of stainless steel rods.
