Digital Camera Accessories for the Digital Rider: SteadePod


Written by: RoadRUNNER Motorcycle Touring & Travel

Here’s an old DIY trick turned into a product. In the Do-It-Yourself, version, a piece of string with a washer on the end is attached to your camera. Drop the washer to the ground, step on it, and pull the camera until the string is taught. The tension in the string helps hold the camera steady…not as good as a tripod but it may be just enough to stabilize the camera to get that low light shot. Here’s the “productized” version of the idea.


The SteadePod is for…
…people that can’t be bothered with a tripod
…ultralight travelers
…certain (but not all) low light situations

The SteadePod is not for…
…very long exposure photography

Good for capturing bike actions and documenting the whole trip. I use my goPro camera for such trips. It's very handy and gives quality photos and videos.

Interesting. I want to see how it is done so that I can try doing it too. :)

This is interesting. Now you can capture the greatest moments of your ride with the accessory in place. I want to see how it is done though.
