Octopus.Camera™ was founded by industry veterans with over 50 years of cumulative experience in this field. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of high quality, competitively priced accessories with a focus on solving everyday problems.
Traditional small-format supports have included the rigid mini-tripod, the bendable tripod and the suction cup mount. The issues with these are that they respectively often collapse under weight, slip or tip over easily, or simply come unstuck and fall off.
These things often tend to happen at the worst moments. And this drives people nuts!
The innovative, multiple-patents-pending OctoPad was born from the necessity that is the true mother of invention, creating a new category of small-format support. Used as intended, the OctoPad:
The universal 1/4-20 inch threaded bolt allows for endless possibilities for using your OctoPad:
360 VR Cameras
Mirrorless and smaller DSLR setups
Smartphones and Tablets
And anything else you can think of, just about anywhere!
The OctoPad includes a heavy-duty ball head for mounting and positioning your device. This ball head has been customized for Octopus.Camera for easy attachment and high-strength grip. Additional features include a cable management strap, a lanyard clip grommet and a proprietary surface material for the OctoPad’s anti-skid base, making the OctoPad both versatile and a very stable support for your audio, video or photographic equipment:
