Aluminum Core and Non-Slip Thermoplastic Elastomer Leg Coverings

Las Vegas, NV - Sunpak, a division of ToCAD America Inc. announces the new Sunpak FlexPod Plus, which is truly flexible enough to wrap around just about anything, providing extraordinary photo opportunities. With its patent pending design using an aluminum core and non-slip thermoplastic elastomer leg coverings, it is the next generation of bendable tripod technology which is revolutionary. The FlexPod Plus's uniquely designed flexible legs can securely wrap around just about any suitable object to give photos a fresh new perspective when attached to one of today's new compact digital cameras. It can be attached to a pole, railing, chair, fence or tree branch. With its small size, it fits where a regular tripod won't. And it works as a tabletop tripod too! The FlexPod Plus is being displayed at PMA 2008, January 31 - February 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C187.

The Sunpak FlexPod Plus, the flexible, lightweight, compact digital camera tripod that you can bend, stretch and wrap around just about anything. It is the perfect travel companion for today's newest compact digital cameras and with its built-in quick release and true ball head makes setup super-fast and easier than ever. Weighing in at less than 4 ounces, it is the tripod that won't be left behind.

The FlexPod Plus's specially designed non-slip thermoplastic elastomer leg coverings grip tightly and will not slip when properly wrapped around most smooth, dry surfaces. In addition, it can be used as a tabletop tripod by simply extending its legs. To make setup fast and easy the built-in Double-Lock quick release camera mount makes it a snap to instantly attach just about any compact digital camera. And for getting that perfect shot, the FlexPod Plus has a true ball head that makes setup fast at any angle and easy to make small adjustments without disturbing the leg placement.

Also, the FlexPod Plus is available in three fun colors, black w/white leg rings, blue w/light blue leg rings and gray w/black leg rings.

The street price of the FlexPod is $16.95 and is currently shipping.
