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.
