Tripod Free Night Photography

When the sun goes down cameras are often put away and unused. But night offers some of the most dramatic and compelling photographic opportunities, especially in cities and popular travel destinations. Night photography is more of a challenge, but well worth the effort.

No Tripod? No Problem!

One intimidating aspect of night photography is the need of a tripod or the lack of one. Consider how many tourists carry cameras—just about everyone. How many tote a tripod? Very few. That’s where HandlePod comes in. This pocket size, four-ounce device offers reliable camera stabilization without the weight and bulk of a tripod. It is designed to be ultra-light, fast and simple to use. Just press it against any available solid support and presto, tripod-like stability without a tripod!

Night Photography Adventures Made Easy

Next time you are traveling in a popular tourist city at night, or even your own home town, consider making it a night time photography adventure that is tripod free yet camera stable. HandlePod makes it possible by using any solid support as a substitute tripod. And you’ll be surprised at how many possible support objects you’ll find. Just look around, pick a support and press the HandlePod against it.

It’s easy to do and yields reliable stability for the longest exposure. Be sure to use a remote release or the self timer to avoid touching the camera. With HandlePod and a little imagination, you will be amazed at the long exposure magic you can accomplish without a tripod.

Don’t let low light, long exposures and lack of a tripod hold you back after sunset. HandlePod lets you photographically take back the night—no tripod needed.
