Long lens cameras and
compacts both need a quick, reliable system for supporting them e.g. photographing
scenes of activity where there is not much time to assemble a traditional tripod
(nature, riots, sports etc) or where a tripod is too cumbersome e.g. Safaris or Hillwalking. At approximately 50 grammes it is an ultra-lightweight alternative. It's light enough to take onto the plane for that Safari trip! A Beanpod is
a cushioned bag shaped to support a long lens or compact camera on, for example,
a wall, post, car roof or window sill - with no set-up time and maximum ease
of use. Now vertical surfaces can offer instant support.
does a Beanpod work ?
Like a beanbag -
it just slips under the camera or long lens to provide instant stability, an
instant level surface and protection from scratching. You'll get a reduction
in both vibrations and wind forces and it can be used a lot closer to the ground
than a conventional tripod. It enables longer shutter times through the lateral stability that it provides.It's portable and lightweight, being generously filled with cotton; ideal for putting in a pocket between locations. It's UNIQUELY OVAL in shape, this being the optimum for support, and is
approximately 8 inches by 5 inches and 2 inches thick.

The finest durable
and wipeable materials for long life and perfect results. Cotton filling ensures
