Product Highlights
  • Beanbag Alternative for Long Lenses
  • Includes Break-away Tether
  • Lightweight, Simple Support
  • Closed-Cell Foam with Memory Foam Top
  • Groove for Straddling Car Door or Fence
  • Slot for Mounting on Car Window

The Puffin Pad Pro Lens Support is an innovative, lightweight alternative to using a beanbag to support a lens. The Puffin Pad is constructed of closed-cell foam with a 1/2" deep memory foam top that adopts the shape of your lens barrel.

The bottom of the pad has a round groove that gives way to a deeper slot. The first level is for straddling a relatively slim object such as the top of a gate or a car door with the window down. The deeper slot is for mounting your lens and the attached camera body directly onto a half-rolled window. For shooting from flat surfaces, you can flip the Puffin Pad over and nestle the lens into the wide groove.

The Puffin Pad is also appropriate for supporting small camcorders and cameras with shorter telephoto lenses.

The attached break-away tether allows you to loop a lanyard to it and secure it to your belt, backpack, etc. or loop the lanyard to your wrist, boat rail, safari vehicle or gate rail.

Material of Construction Automotive foam topped with 1/2" (12.7 mm) memory foam
Dimensions 7.0 x 5.5 x 5.0" (17.8 x 14 x 12.7 cm)

        Over the hood of my truck, roll bar on my RZR, rocks and anything else I need to rest a tele on. Saves the lens from abuse, no vibration, use two of them now

        Comments about Puffin Pad Pro Lens Support:

        I wanted a easy to use and transport mount for shooting with my 500mm lens from my vehicle's window while driving around a local national wildlife refuge. The Puffin Pad sounded like a good alternative to a more traditional bean bag. Light weight, no beans or sand to mess with, fits most car doors, etc. Well, it does not come close to fitting my Honda Pilot's door. My door is way thicker than the Puffin Pad can accommodate. I could raise the window slightly and engage the glass into the groove at the bottom of the pad which helped, but my windows, like many newer vehicles are not perfectly horizontal. They are sloping and so the pad would never be level. Also, by raising up the window, the pad became too high to comfortably shoot with. These were just my observations using my gear in my vehicle...other people may have much better luck with their own gear and vehicles. Luckily, I had a friend who wanted the pad and bought it from me. It fit the door of his Suburban quite well (thinner doors), surprisingly. The quality of the Puffin Pad itself I thought was okay. Seemed kind of pricey for what it is though. It also seemed to me that if one were to put a bit too much pressure on it while straddling the doorframe of a car window it might snap in half. The foam just felt like the type that could break relatively easily.

          I bought this for light duty use in place of sand bags. Time will tell how well it works.
