Is your camera lazy? Did it move home after college, promising to find a job but has just been bumming around with his High School friends (Pointy, Shooty and Dessler) for 8 months? Get him The Pod, which is a poor man’s tripod in the shape of a bean bag.
The platform is just a nylon bag that has a slip-proof base that mounts on uneven surfaces to give you shots more pop and less shake. Unless you’re trying to shoot a Star Trek battle scene on the USS Enterprise, in which case shake away.
