Stabilize Your Camera on Anything with HandlePod

HandlePod offers a different method of camera stabilization that takes some getting used to. If your idea of camera stability is either a tripod or proper hand holding technique, then HandlePod is definitely a new approach. The fact that you can press it against absolutely any solid support and achieve tripod-like stability opens up a new world of possibilities. No looking for something small enough to wrap bendy mini-pod legs on or luging a tripod. Low light, long exposures become a question of “What can I brace against to avoid camera shake”. And it can be anything!

The possibilities are endless and can occasionally be quite unusual—things you would not ordinarily think of without the realization that HandlePod lets you stabilize on any object. The example at right is a night shot of the cathedral in Sienna. There is no hint of camera shake because HandlePod was braced against the back of a delivery truck, not something you would normally consider a camera support. With HandlePod, it’s a matter of taking advantage of whatever is available no matter how unusual.

Don’t Hand Hold. Use HandlePod

HandlePod is simple, fast and reliable. Why risk hand holding for low light exposures when camera stabilization is within easy reach? Just brace HandlePod on the nearest object and presto—no camera shake. Now you can shoot at a lower ISO to minimize grain. And long exposure effects like traffic trails become a possibility without a tripod.

Have you ever stabilized a camera against an unusual support for a low light shot? If so, we’d like to hear about it in the comments below. And consider how HandlePod makes camera stabilization on literally anything a practical reality.
