Ok, so I have decided that buying a GorillaPod would be great for the honeymoon! We won’t have to ask someone everytime we want a picture of the two of us. Right now I just have a Powershoot camera, but I’m almost positive that Fiance is getting me a Cannon T1i soon, so I was thinking that I would buy the GorillaPod that would work for the camera that I am hopefully getting, will it be okay, if I don’t get the DSLR camera to use my small powershot camera with it? Also, I’m confused to you have to buy the GorillaPod and the Ballhead? Why don’t they just come together? Thanks.

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!
