    Comments about OmniPod Omni-Pro7 Camera/Camcorder Support Platform - Black:

    I've been dying to get one of these for quite some time. Shooting with a tripod in NYC is problematic, especially since I carry my gear everywhere on my back. This bean bag solved that problem. It was great for resting on the railings at Grand Central to take long exposures. It was also fun to sticking it in corners and crevices and shoot blind with a cable release. There was a little creeping if I didn't completely set it, and it adds several pounds and a lot of bulk to my existing pack.The camera mount is a nice touch.Here are some shots I took using it.

      I purchased this beanbag (no sitting allowed) for an upcoming trip. I tested the beanbag as soon as I received it. The non slip feature and the velcro strap are enhanced features that make this a top seller. I would highly recommend this product. Thank you B&H Photo!

        Keep in car for bad weather shooting from car. Simple in it's concept, solves complex problems. Shoot from car in snow, heavy rain or other undesirable circumstances.

        • Rubbery "sticky" bottom

          Comments about OmniPod Omni-Pro7 Camera/Camcorder Support Platform - Black:

          After years using three different models of "the pod" beanbag platforms, I decided to try this "new kid on the block" and am disappointed. My main beef is that the the base beneath the mounting screw is too small, about 1x3 inches, and does not provide enough bottom support to the camera for precise, stay-in-place aiming. The one thing that I do like about it is the rubbery bottom that keeps it from sliding around on my car's dashboard. All in all, a good first effort but not quite ready for prime time.

          I used this product on a trip to Churchill to see the polar bears - it was just excellent - steadied my camera when shooting thru open windows with long lens. It really was a great help and I was so glad I had it. It worked in places that a tripod just wouldn't fit.

          Comments about OmniPod Omni-Pro7 Camera/Camcorder Support Platform - Black:

          I purchased the Omni-Pro7 Beanbag support platform for my D700...mainly due to the fact that it had a tripod screw to secure the bag to the camera, and I didn't want to carry a tripod on a recent business trip. The beanbag worked just like it was supposed to. Without moving parts or anything really there to break, it was as expected. Its weight is nice and heavy for a big camera. My only complaint (and its a small one) is that it was a little over filled, and a little hard to position perfectly...probably nit picking at this point. I would recommend this item.

            Very useful when shooting in Nature Preserves that confine you to your car, bus etc. Drapes well over a window, steadies on a ferry rail and allows you to mount your camera or lens and move the bag and gear as a unit. I wish that it allowed me to empty it for reduced weight when boarding a plane. You can always buy beans on location.

            Comments about OmniPod Omni-Pro7 Camera/Camcorder Support Platform - Black:

            I use the Omni-Pro7 for lightning photography. It works great when hung on a branch or a railing. It is perfectly stable for 30 to 60 second exposures, but if you don't balance it perfectly, it could tip off the object it is sitting on. The strap that it comes with is not long enough. The beans that are inside leak out (not many, maybe 1 or 2 when you set it down.) The support also is hard to attach to a camera body in a hurry, you have to twist either the heavy beanbag, or spin your camera around and around- quite annoying.
