For hiking

Hi

Gorillapods are made especially for hiking - their XXL model is made for DSLR cameras.

It is easy to pack INSIDE a backpack and you can wrap its legs around some tree or something to keep the camera steady . Does not weight much. BUT It is not totally solid/ vibration free and using the timer or cable release is a must - perhaps also liveview or mirror lock up.

Anyway - good for what it is
