Amazon Prime Day is bringing many bargains across all kinds of cameras and lenses, but the retail behemoth hasn't overlooked the smaller things that prove invaluable for the photographer.
And right now you can get a discount of up to 46% on Joby Gorillapod models, which provide a stable support when a tripod just isn't practical.
Whether you wrap them around a tree trunk or use them to hang your camera upside down, or even fashion them into a hand grip for vlogging, Gorillpods go where conventional tripods don't and let you capture long exposures, videos, selfies and awkward shots without hassle.
Flexible friends with benefits
If you're using a mirrorless camera or a DSLR, you might want to go for either the 3K kit or the 5K kit. How do you know which one to go for? Easy: the number tells you how much weight it will support.
Action camera user? Check out the 500 Action Tripod, which is designed specifically with these kinds of models in mind. And if you're on a really tight budget and you only have a small compact camera, the GorillaPod 325 would be ideal.
