Attach HandlePod for Stable Selfie Video When There’s Nobody to Help

You can secure HandlePod to just about anything using the elastic cord. Any object you can wrap the cord around can be a camera mount. Even large objects will work since the cord stretches to over four feet. This is a useful advantage not only for low light photography but also for video.

When you can’t hold the camera yourself and there’s nobody around to help (you’re alone in a row boat, for example) attach HandlePod to any available support, mount the camera (or smartphone using a tripod adapter) and shoot. The video below is just such a situation showing the Schooner Zodiac shot from a row boat in the San Juan Islands.
