Use HandlePod to Save the Shot in a Photo Emergency

Long exposure low light.

HandlePod is the perfect emergency tool when you need long exposure in low light.

What makes a photo emergency? It is a low light situation that really needs a tripod. But where is it? Home in a closet. That’s an emergency! Most photographers have had the experience of wanting to take a long exposure in low light but had no tripod to stabilize the camera. How to deal with it?

Stabilize on Any Support

HandlePod is the ideal tool to stabilize in low light. All it takes is a solid object and your hand. Hold it against any support—a lamp post, a column, a wall, anything solid. Use a remote release or a two-second shutter delay and exposures of a second to minutes are possible without a tripod.

Tripod free long exposure photography is especially important for travelers. Most people are reluctant to drag a tripod through airports and lug it around all day for a few long exposure night shots. Imagine that blue hour cityscape with traffic trails on a busy thoroughfare. That’s a photo emergency where camera stabilization makes the difference between a blurry disappointment and a real prize winner.

And There Are Plenty of Supports Available

Hand hold against supports for tripod-stable photos

True, you’re limited to locations where a solid support object is available. But cities and tourist locations have an abundance of railings, posts, walls and other supports you can easily stabilize the HandlePod against. And you can use it in places where tripods are forbidden—castles, cathedrals, museums, Disneyland.

A tripod (a mini-pod or sand bag for that matter) must use a horizontal surface. HandlePod solidly engages vertical or horizontal supports with equal ease. Its four rubber-tipped feet will straddle round or cornered supports. Whatever solid object you can find becomes your tripod and gives you reliable camera stabilization for any exposure.

Be ready for any photo emergency that requires camera stabilization in low light. HandlePod is the emergency low light tool that makes all the difference when your tripod is at home.
