Joby Gorillapod SLR & Yongnuo MC36R Cable Release

I love new toys :) Recently for the trip to the snow I quickly aquired a Joby Gorillapod SLR tripod for the trip.. lightweight.. easy to carry and easy to adjust I thought this perfectly fits the bill! After much use, I think I have certainly found a winner… it is a great bit of kit.. moreso for taking shots of small things at close range. This makes a big difference for me as setting up my 190XPROB & 804RC2 combo can be tiresome and toooo much effort for a small shoot.

Ill do a shoot this week for Stormy’s adventure using the new Gorillapod.

Next comes to the new cable shutter release by Yongnuo. This factory is based in China and the ebay store is full of wonderful items at wonderful prices.. but is this a case of you get what you pay for? First impressions are, no.. infact you get a lot more for what you pay! They keep it simple, the KISS rule is great.. especially when it comes to matching the expectations of customers. Photography is no cheap hobby by all means, so any chance I get to save a buck or two (probably to go towards a beer) gets 10 points in my book. I mainly bought this for use to capture star trails but am definitely going to play with a few different styles that can use a tool such as this.

Im thinking ill write a review of both, with example shots as well as positionings and pro’s/con’s.

Anyway just thought I would share a new toy..

Till next time..

    I have a Canon 550d, Do you know if it’s possible to do time lapse video with the MC-36R.

  • If you head to ebay John, you can search for the 550d model of the Yongnuo as they are specific for each model camera (even within brands). Best bet is to look on there, then you can take all the shots and compile the Time Lapse in your chosen editing program.

    Hope that helps,
