Multi-Tool Converts to Camera Tripod

In the constant march forward to make multitools even more, well, “multi-tooled,” Gerber has a neat new implement. On its to-be-released “Steady” model the company adds a camera mount and legs that position the tool for converting it to a tripod.

Gerber ‘Steady’ multitool with camera attached

Its standard screw size will let you mount on mini cameras, smartphones, or SLRs. Fold out the two legs, set the auto-timer, and hit the shutter — the Steady tool is made for self portraits, group photos, and requisite summit shots on high peaks. Time-lapse and night shots are other tripod-required photographic tasks.

Gerber won’t release the Steady until 2012. It will cost $65. Details are sparse beyond the tripod feature, though the company says the Steady has a blade and a total of 12 implements in all.

Awesome! That’s a great idea! Hate having to lug my big tripod around when I hike… it’s heavy, and the gorilla pods don’t support weight very well.

I can’t find this on the Gerber Knife site. Where are these images coming from?

Tudza, The article does state; “…Gerber won’t release the Steady until 2012”

(I overlooked it too btw) :]

Sigh Mentally, I had already purchased three of them for gifts when I got to the part about the 2012 release. Bah Humbug.

Cute, but I’d rather carry a real multitool and a $3/19g bendy tripod (or the smallest of the Gorillapods).
