I recently purchased the Canon PowerShot A590 IS to replace my HP camera. Got some nice shots of Ovechkin *swoon* on the ice at both The Pond and Staples from my seats in the nosebleed sections.

And +1 on the waterfalls shot! That's a stunner!

Here is what I was thinking for a tripod.......



Its called a Gorilla Pod and they have 2 sized, one for small cameras, and one for bigger SLR's.

Its bendable to any shape and with a small camera would work awesome for getting a group shot, or those cool shots like Mr. Beanz is known for posting! (survivorman style)

Just looked at it.
The lock ring will not hold very long while riding a bike.
