Here’s a product that might help make your photo gear a bit lighter.
The Camera Stablizing Bag acts as both a protective case and tripod for your camera. It features a flexible lens-stabilizing cradle for SLRs and consists of waterproof nylon that molds to the camera. In addition to creating a level platform for photo shoots, the user can fill the camera bag with rice, dirt, gravel, or beans to help with stabilization. He or she also can fill up the lens compartment to a desired height.
