How many times have you been attaching a tripod plate and realised that you need to scrabble around and find a coin to screw it up tight enough? For me, too many times.
But now this Camera Multi-tool from Kikkerland Design could be just the very thing you’ve been missing in your kit bag. It even has the Sunny 16 rule etched into it for those of us that don’t want to commit it to memory.
The compact design is around the size of a credit card, and being completely flat means that you can just slip it into a pocket on your camera bag and not have to carry half a dozen separate tools around with you.
The multi-tool incorporates 13 different functions including a saw blade, a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips screwdriver, two wrenches, a blade, a Prybar nail puller, a bottle opener, a butterfly screw wrench, a ruler, and a keyhole. According to the website the hole in the centre “is a circular cavity that allows users to find the best angle for their photograph.”
I’m not completely convinced that I need a device that helps me find the best angle for a photograph, I tend to use my eyes for that job. However, the bottle opener feature could definitely come in handy after a long shoot!
You can purchase the Camera Multi-tool here and it is currently priced at $5.
