Use Your Hand for Camera Stabilization on Any Support

Until now small camera supports and tripod alternatives have come with only two basic options for camera stabilization:

  1. Put them on a reasonably flat, level surface. Mini-tripods and bean bag type supports fall into this category.
  2. Attach to support objects with some sort of mechanism—bendable legs, Velcro straps, clamps, suction cups, adhesive putty and so on.

Now there’s a third option—YOUR HAND! HandlePod is a handle shaped camera mount that you
