You all know Joby Gorillapods, the clever and flexible mini tripods that can be attached or mounted on all sort of stuff. The Miggo Splat puts the idea a step further. The Miggo Splat is very small yet capable to get a 1.2kg DSLR mounted on. The really cool thing on this tiny tripod appear to be the legs, a concept that’s different from Gorillapods. These legs not only seem to be more sturdy, but also to adapt better to branches or wherever it happens you may fix your camera. Might be a good option for travel, and it’s just $24.99!

The folks at LensVid reviewed the Miggo Splat and posted their thoughts, they say:
After playing with the Splat for a few weeks we can say that its a really cool little accessory that we think any photographer will appreciate. Its flexible, easy to use, very versatile and extremely portable. No less important – its really inexpensive, making it a really cool impulse buy or gift.
Is the Splat a complete replacement for something like the heavy duty GorillaPod (like the GorillaPod Focus), probably not – the legs are simply not long enough and the camera can’t be positioned high enough – however if you just need to place a pretty heavy camera on a stable mini tripod and quickly change angles, the Splat is an awesome solution for 1/4 of the price.
