Quik Pod: Travel Gadget Discovered by Canadian After Five Thousand Years!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2007) -

Attention Travel, Lifestyles and Business Editors

Monopods, one legged creatures, date back thousands of years to Greek mythology. In photography the name describes a one legged device used to stabilize cameras.

Canadian Wayne Fromm, inventor of the Quik Pod(R) Pro+, the world's first handheld tripod, has now revolutionized the monopod industry with the Quik Pod(R) DSLR. Fromm has developed the opposite of a traditional monopod and has added a handle to the foot that touches the ground. Fromm noted that monopods are commonly used to extend a photographer's reach although they all lacked a handle.

For the first time in history, photographers have a monopod with a grip handle for extended reach and self-imaging. Quik Pod(R) DSLR includes a proprietary built-in wide-angle mirror for overhead viewing and self-portraits while traveling. www.quikpod.com/dslr.asp
