DigiDudes bring attitude to your tripod

Digidudes

You could spend money on the new Sony Partyshot to take lots of pictures at any given time, but you will need to get one of Sony’s new cameras.  However, if you just want the camera in one place, and would like to have more fun with the traditional tripod, then we highly recommend the DigiDudes.  As you can see, these guys have a removeable head that allows your camera to be placed securely on its body with the pull-out legs.  They retail for $19.99, and have individual personalities like Pinky Scorsese, iChomp, Snot Buster (why not?) G-bling-Money-Son, and BoltBot.

Sony Party-shot
