The SteadyWeb String Tripod from GFK Products, LLC provides increased stability when using any device that can be mounted to a traditional tripod, such as cameras, camcorders, spotting scopes, rangefinders and binoculars. Simply clip SteadyWeb onto your belt loop, or any stable anchor point. Then, unlock the line and screw the bolt into the tripod mount threads, then lock line in place at a desired length, pull the line taut and begin shooting.
With the inclusion of long optical and digital zoom lenses, as well as HD video in most cameras, it has become difficult to hold a camera steady--even with image stabilization. It is also inconvenient to carry a cumbersome tripod at all times in order to counter these situations. This String Tripod does not need to be opened up and placed on the floor, so you can also use the SteadyWeb in places traditional tripods are prohibited, including museums and many public venues.
The SteadyWeb is an inexpensive and simple device that fits in almost any pocket or camera bag, and helps stabilize cameras in a variety of different situations, including shooting over crowds, panning video, or handshake in low-light conditions.
