    Quik PodT Handheld Extendable Tripod - Press Release

    Quik Pod™ Puts the Photographer in The Picture!


    March 8, 2007, Las Vegas, NV. If you’re the photographer in the family the best photo of yourself is likely on your driver’s license. With the Quik Pod™, the world’s first handheld extendable tripod, the days of holding out your arm only to get poor picture results are over. No more asking strangers for help. A person simply holds the extended Quik Pod™ with camera attached and properly framed photos and videos are captured without the help of strangers.

    The Quik Pod™ invention came to Wayne Fromm when he was traveling with his family. He was growing tired of asking strangers to operate his camera for family photos. Fromm has invented and marketed nearly fifty successful commercial products and is particularly known for his toy creations including Disney's Beauty and the Beast Talking Mirror. Over one hundred prototypes were created before he successfully manufactured the world's first pocket size extendable, handheld tripod for digital cameras and camcorders, the Quik Pod™.

    “I see a lot of products and this one stands out as a winner. It solves an everyday problem for photographers” said Neil Cohen, buyer J&R Music World/Computer World.

    The Quik Pod™ is made of sturdy polycarbonate and aluminum, weighs less than 3.5 ounces and comes with a built in self-positioning mirror to help frame each shot. Retailing for less than $30.00, the Quik Pod™ Pro+ includes a lightweight tripod leg adapter.

    The Quik Pod™ is versatile including photo, video and even lighting applications. “Families on vacation and You Tubers will all benefit by making picture taking and movie making easier”. "Professionals are using the Quik Pod™ for photo and lighting solutions.” says Fromm

    Fromm Works will be exhibiting at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) annual event in Las Vegas (booth R246). We invite all media to visit with us and check out the many uses of the Quik Pod™ with accessories that include a cell phone camera adapter, a Pentax compatible remote control Quik Pod™ and demonstrations of how to use it for self-portraits and as a featherweight, compact stand for lighting.

    The Quik Pod™ has two U.S. Patent Apps published and is designed for point and shoot cameras, camcorders, lightweight DSLR, waterproof cameras and for remote lighting. The Quik Pod™ converts from handheld use to tabletop in seconds.

    The Quik Pod™ can be viewed at www.quikpod.com/home.asp. The Quik Pod™ can be purchased in the USA at B&H Photo, Adorama, Ritz, J&R Computer World and in Canada at Blacks Photo and Henrys or ordered online at http://www.quikpod.com .
