HandlePod, The Tripod Alternative for Travel Photography

Travelers know that time is an essential and limited commodity. And if you travel with others, a spouse, a partner, a tour group, it quickly becomes apparent that time is not your own. It is subject to the schedule, interests and timetable of others who may not share your dedication to photography. The time it takes to set up a tripod, get the shot then break down and store the equipment may not be appreciated by travel companions who resent the “waste” of time. The solution, of course is to travel alone and have all the time you need, or travel with a photography tour group. This is not always possible.

HandlePod Makes Low Light Shots Fast

If you find yourself traveling with companions who are in more of a “hurry up” mode than you are when it comes to photography, the solution is to travel light and use equipment that is small, easy and fast.  That’s the idea behind HandlePod. For long exposure night shots, just slap it against any convenient support, hold it in place with your hand and shoot. It is as quick as a hand held shot and as stable as a tripod.

To make it even faster, leave the HandlePod attached and folded on the base of the camera. When you’re ready to shoot, just fold it out and hold it against the support. It’s that fast, that easy and no tripod to slow you down. Yet you are still able to get long exposure night shots without camera shake.

If your travel includes all the time you need to get the perfect shot without complaints from others, then by all means carry and use a tripod. But if you’d rather travel light and move fast, yet still have the option of camera stabilization in low light, consider HandlePod as a reliable tripod alternative.
