Joby Gorillapod SLR GP2

I bought the Joby Gorillapod SLR GP2 for using in my photography. I had done some research on the product before I bought it and found that people were concerned about the strength of the tripod.

The Gorillapod SLR is designed for use with lightweight SLR cameras and camcorders weighing up to 800g. This is where the reviews were failing; the cameras that they mentioned were all heavy SLR cameras certainly heavier than 800g.

The tripod comes complete with flexible joints that bend and rotate though 360 degrees which help you to form the perfect shape on any ground. The Gorillapod SLR has sturdy legs and an integrated bubble level, having the bubble level helps to get a steady shot in any environment. There is nothing worse than getting a good shot and then having to digitally edit it to be straight.

Way back in the late 90′s when I would want to keep prying eyes away from my files I used to hide them in folders within folders within folders. Only I would know which folders to open to eventually get to my “hidden files”. Of course this type of security is really old fashioned and is not secure at all.

When Windows began letting you create users and password protect your computer I then did that, but soon realized there was a way around that too. Also I didn’t want to lock my whole computer out, just a few folders.

Then later I downloaded software to password protect my files. This method has worked fine for me. The only drawback was that you’d have to load the program first and then the password to get access to the files. If you have a good password it’s pretty good security. However what if someone has installed a keylogger on your system that tracks all of your keystrokes?
