There are already a great variety of multitools out there to choose from. And we love Gerber. But, apart from allowing you to unscrew something or pull a thorn out of your thumb, the Gerber Tripod Multitool has got the rest beat; acting as a tripod for your smartphone or compact digital camera. The product, which we saw last year, is now finally shipping.
The mini tripod for your smartphone or digicam holds a maximum weight of 340 grams. It comes with two legs which fold out in the front, and its base will act as the third leg. You will find a standard-size screw mount on the top. You can also play with wire cutters, a bottle opener (everybody’s favorite), a fine edge blade, screwdrivers, but not all at once of course.
So for $59.99, taking that group shot of you and your fellow travellers in the middle of nowhere won’t certainly be a big challenge for you, and all the other tools will make survival that much easier. But if photography is never going to be a hobby for you, you can stick to a Swiss Army knife.
