Accessories for your camera are great and all, but carrying them around can be a drag. This camera case from Firebox does double duty as both a case and a mini tripod. Sure, it won’t replace a stand alone tripod, but for scenarios where you’d like to be included in the pic and there’s a trusty surface at head level you’ll be justified in your gimmicky purchase. The Wrap-up Tripod is constructed of Neoprene so it should protect from minor shock and water.
