Such a simple idea for those times when you’re stuck somewhere with your digital camera but no regular tripod: the Bottle Cap Tripod.
With a standard screw connector at one end, the other end fits any normal water bottle, turning it into an impromptu camera stand.
I wouldn’t feel particularly confident attaching anything much bigger than a light, compact camera to it, even if the bottle was filled with liquid, but it could solve some problems when you just have to get that steady shot.
Alternatively, the Gorilla is a bit more than ten dollars but more versatile and less likely to cover your expensive camera in H2O.
