On Sunday 26th October 2008, a deluge of enthusiastic photographers and Andy Rouse fans hit the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust in Slimbridge
I wanted some means of support for the camera, even if it was just for the occasional self-timed snap. I looked at all kinds of options including bean-bags and a wealth of mini tripods, and then a colleague offered a suggestion.
“You need a Joby!” he said.
“That’s right.” I replied, “A neat little jobby to support the camera, but what?”
“No, no, no. Not a jobby, a JOBY. A Gorillapod.”
