Use Your Hand for Camera Stabilization on Any Support

  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.
