I got a few cool photography gifts this year. This one is the Joby Gorillapod. It is a neat little bendable tripod you can mount almost anywhere. I also got some great gifts from my in-laws like Rogue Gels, a three-head flash bracket, an arm for my ring flash and a Peak Design Capture which allows you to hang your camera from a belt or pack strap. I am really looking forward to using both the Joby and the Capture next time I go hiking.
