Tripod Alternative Night Photography for Travelers

Travel Photography at Night Requires Camera Stabilization

Carrying a tripod while traveling is essential for photojournalists on assignment or serious photographers who want to get the most from their travel photos. Yet for the typical traveler, the disadvantages of a tripod outweigh the benefits. Weight and bulk are major factors as is the time and attention needed to set it up and take it down. Most photographers are content to forego the advantages of a tripod in favor of traveling light and shooting quickly.

But lack of a reliable camera support reduces your photography to exposures you can confidently hand hold without shake. This is a serious limitation for night photos and effects like traffic trails on city streets. Travel photography at night requires camera stabilization. A tripod alternative should be lightweight, easy to carry, quick to use and versatile.

HandlePod was designed to meet all those requirements. At just four ounces and pocket size, you

can easily take it anywhere. And it provides reliable camera stability on any solid support with just the touch of your hand. Press it against any firm object and time exposures become tripod-solid and shake-free. If you can reach out and touch something solid, you have a camera support. And there are plenty of them, especially in travel and tourist destinations. Railings, posts, columns, buildings, anything you can press the HandlePod against becomes a camera stabilizing tripod alternative.

HandlePod makes low light night photography accessible without the weight, bulk and hassle of a tripod. No lightweight alternative will completely replace a sturdy tripod. But HandlePod provides dependable camera support in a wide range of situations where hand-held photography would be impossible.
