Does Size Matter for Camera Stabilization?

Cameras are getting smaller. There are two cameras in a smartphone, front and back. Even DSLRs are downsizing. Mirrorless cameras feature interchangeable lenses and the functionality of a DSLR with considerably less weight and size. And the point-and-shoot has become absolutely miniscule. Yet a tripod still has to be solid, sturdy and large enough to raise the camera to a comfortable height. This comes at the cost of weight and bulk regardless of camera size.

A tripod alternative, however, can be pocket size, weigh a few ounces and still reliably support the majority of cameras. HandlePod fits that criteria according to the review from MirrorLessons, “It is the ideal size for anything between small point-and-shoots to medium-sized DSLRs, and of course, all mirrorless cameras.” Used correctly, HandlePod provides dependable camera stabilization on any available solid support.

When using a support object for camera stabilization, size is often a determining factor with most tripod alternative devices. depending on the system used to secure it to the support. Velcro straps, C-clamps or bendable mini-tripod legs are common mechanisms used to attach to objects. All have limitations depending on the size of the support. If the object is too big to clamp on or wrap around, it cannot be used to support the camera.

HandlePod has no such limitations. The elastic cord will secure it to large objects up to four feet around. Anything larger than that can be a camera support simply by pressing the HandlePod against it by hand. When it comes to using any available object as a camera support, with HandlePod size definitely does NOT matter!
