Alternative Supports for Camera Stability, No Tripod

A New Tool for Camera Stability–Your Hand

Most photographers, even serious ones, do not lug a tripod with their camera all the time. Yet camera stabilization is desirable or necessary for long exposures or to avoid camera shake for stable video. Tripod alternatives come in a variety of shapes and employ different methods for use on support objects. They include bean bags, mini-tripods with flexible legs, camera mounts with C-clamps, suction cups, adhesive putty, Velcro straps and so on. They are useful in limited situations and none are designed or recommended to be held by hand against support objects.

HandlePod presents a different approach to camera stabilization, one that uses your hand plus any available solid support to provide tripod-like camera stability. Hold HandlePod against any object with light pressure to eliminate camera movement. Just keep a steady hand and use a remote release or two-second timer to fire the shutter. It places long exposures and low light photography within easy reach of your hand—a tool you always have with you.

The uses for HandlePod don’t stop there. Do you want to attach it firmly to supports? The included elastic cord will secure it to many objects, even large ones with a diameter of up to forty inches. What if you want to place your camera on a flat surface and aim it anywhere either vertically or horizontally. HandlePod does that too, just like a mini-tripod.

What if you need a handle to provide a solid, shake-free grip on your camera for smoother video or more solid hand-held exposures? Again, the answer is HandlePod.

The value of an accessory depends on the variety of ways it can be used. HandlePod does so much. It’s a comfortable handle, a mini-tripod, a secure attachment to a wide range of support objects, and it’s the only tripod alternative that uses your hand to secure it to literally any support object available. Camera stability at your fingertips!
