I carry a Leatherman in my camera bag and occasionally, I’ll find a use for it, such as tightening a quick release plate, fidgeting with batteries in a tight compartment, or such.
But this new Gerber Steady multi-tool takes things to a whole new level. It’s a pocket knife with a built-in tripod and 1/4-20 screw for mounting your camera. I’ll take two please!
Unfortunately, it won’t be available until 2012. That’s a shame because it would’ve made it to the top of my Christmas list this year.
