Travel Photography Indoors Needs Camera Stabilization

Gal Row4 Pic3 Travel photography is where you are most likely to encounter the need for camera stabilization in low light. It is also where you are least likely to have a tripod available or may not be able to use one. Many locations forbid tripod use. Few travelers lug a tripod around anyway so tourists are doubly deprived of camera stabilization—you either have no tripod available or you are forbidden to use one if you have it.

Stable Hand Held Photos in Churches and Museums

Vatican Museum painting shot hand held with HandlePod.

HandlePod provides camera stabilization when you need it and is not prohibited in any location. Multiple uses cover a variety of situations. If hand holding the camera is the only option, HandlePod gives you a solid grip, better leverage and the ability to shoot at slower shutter speeds. This is an important advantage in churches, cathedrals, castles and museums where light levels are usually lower than can be confidently photographed hand held. This photo was shot hand held at ¼ second.

Stabilize on Any Solid Support

HandlePod can also take advantage of any available solid object for support. This is important in situations where longer exposures are necessary or you want to take advantage of multiple exposure brackets for HDR tonemapping. A cathedral with stained glass windows is a high dynamic range situation that requires multiple exposures for the bright glass and the much darker surrounding interior. Use a pew, a column a railing or anything available to press the HandlePod against for bracketed exposures. It assures tripod-stable, shake-free photos wherever a tripod is unavailable or prohibited.
