The OctoPad is a completely new form concept for support equipment. It is a patented, weighted non-slip mat design offering far superior stability to that of existing mini tripods and suction cup supports. The OctoPad was designed from the ground up to save you time and trouble. The OctoPad has an integrated male 1/4"-20 inch threaded bolt to allow attachment of virtually any photographic accessory, as well as for portable lights, monitors, speakers and image recorders. It includes a custom designed, high-capacity removable photographic ball head also having an adjustable 1/4"-20 threaded bolt connection interface. The OctoPad's round footprint makes it resistant to tipping over. Just set it down and go. The OctoPad has no fiddly leg joints to buckle under load. The anti-slip base material means that the OctoPad holds without pesky leaking.
