Use HandlePod for Hand-Supported Long Exposures

Using your hand to stabilize a camera against any solid support is a time honored practice recommended by many photo instructors and books. But a camera will not connect solidly to objects and this method is not advisable for long exposures. HandlePod firmly engages any support object and can be hand held against the support for any length of time. It is the only camera support specifically designed to held by hand against support objects. It opens up a whole world of possibility for camera stabilization on literally anything.
