I dont have one but I want a gorillapod so badly! I need to order one soon – that would be perfect for your honeymoon!

I just ordered one last night! I hope I bought the right thing because I only bought the gorillapod. I’m not sure what the ballhead is.

I love our gorillapod!  I just have a Sony cybershot so I could buy the cheapest one, and it came all in one piece.  I ordered from LLBean, and they have two SLR options, and looks like they come with all necessary parts.  The nicest option (SLR Zoom w/ballhead) comes with a thread adapter so you can use it for smaller and larger cameras.  That one might be your best bet to use with either camera.

Also look into a remote trigger.  Using the timer is ok, but  a pain.  The one I have has half press focus and then full press takes the picture, it’s wireless.

I didn’t use the pod much on our honeymoon, there seemed to always someone around that had a nice camera that I could ask to take a nice one of us.  For the times I was limited to waiters or waitresses, I just put the camera on live view so it was like their point and shoot.

 

Do they still make the T1i?  I think the T3i just came out!
