Keep HandlePod on Your Camera for Immediate Use
One important advantage of any tripod alternative camera support is accessibility. It should be easy to set up and be ready to go quickly whenever and wherever it is needed. As opposed to a tripod which takes considerable time to set up, position and use.
The most readily accessible tripod alternatives are those that are small and compact enough to keep attached to the bottom of your camera and ready for immediate use. Some tripod alternatives fall into this category and others are too large, bulky or inconvenient to live attached to your camera.
HandlePod is in the first category. It folds back on itself to form a compact package that fits unobtrusively against the bottom of your camera. At just four ounces and 5.75 inches in length, it adds little weight or bulk to the camera hanging from your neck strap. Yet it unfolds in seconds, ready for camera stabilization on any convenient support object. Any firm object you can reach out and touch will instantly support your camera with tripod-like stability. Just unfold the HandlePod, press it against the solid support and shoot (but be sure to use a remote release or two-second timer to avoid creating vibration during exposure).
This opens up possibilities for photography and video that would not be possible without such a compact and easy to use camera stabilization device. It makes long exposures in low light fast and simple. Time lapse video that is impossible to hand hold becomes as easy as pressing HandlePod against a post or rail. And you can attach it to supports just as easily with the supplied elastic cord.
Any photo or video situation that demands absolute camera stability can be handled with complete confidence. Just keep HandlePod attached to your camera and ready for instant use.
