The Beanpod is a fast and versatile camera support solution. Or beanbag! It simply slips under a long lens such as those found on SLR cameras or compact cameras and gives support. This means longer shutter exposures and much less camera shake. No more blurry images!
Rather than carrying around a full-sized tripod which you may not even use and some feel slightly embarrassed about the Beanpod is small enough to slip into your pocket at 8 by 5 inches oval by 2 inches thick. Now any flat surface which is available becomes a stable support e.g. car, wall, fence post, rock, even vertical surfaces! It's certainly a lot quicker to use than setting up a tripod too! Alternatively, by placing it in your camera bag you provide another soft cushion between your other equipment. The camera itself and the lens are protected from scrapes too - by using a Beanpod as a support you can utilise the rough surface of a brick or stone without fear of damaging your hard-earned equipment! The low profile also means that low-level photography is catered for too. You can get the camera much lower to the ground than if you were to use a tripod.
A Beanpod is very lightweight weighing in at around 50 grammes. This means it is hardly noticable when you're carrying it. It also means it's a good alternative for taking on a plane for holiday photos..leave the heavy and cumbersome tripod behind!
As well as looking more professional than a home-made effort the product is made from quality materials and is manufactured to a high standard. The body is a wipe-dry synthetic leather which will wear well and has high-grade emroidery displaying the Beanpod logo on the side.
Magazine reviews are available on the product's website at www.Beanpods.co.uk - there are also example photographs there which demonstrate the huge difference such a simple product makes to your images.
Retailing at GBP 9.99 this beanbag is a highly recommended photographic support. We all need a little support!
