If you’ve ever struggled taking a steady or unique selfie, time-lapse, portrait or landscape photo, a flexible tripod will do the trick. Flexible tripods can wrap around and hang from trees, poles, and bikes. They can even bend into selfie sticks, hand-stabilizers, and shoulder mounts. Flexible tripods are also lightweight and compact, which makes them easy to fit into bags or pockets. Keep one in your car or camera bag and always be prepared to take amazing photos. Don’t stay limited by flat surfaces—experiment with extreme and unusual heights and angles.
