I know there are several on the forum that also enjoy photography. I ran across a guy on our last trip that had one of these. A neat little gadget and very versatile. You can mount your camera most anywhere to do timed photos, self portraits, etc... Click on this link:
I just ordered a couple. The price I thought was very reasonable and will make a nice gift for some folks I know.
I'm not advertising for these guys. Hope I'm not violating any rules.
