Oben STB-10 Reviews
Works as described
watch out you do need a tripod with wide legs for this to not touch the ground.
Useful and reasonably priced
I bought this to reduce vibration in breezy conditions, because hanging a weight (like a backpack) from the tripod top plate hasn't worked for me. It could prevent the tripod from tipping over in the wind, but it hasn't reduced vibration much if at all, even with the weight touches the ground. Withe Oben hammock, even a 5 lb weight has reduced the vibration, and more weight even more reduction. In a light or moderate breeze that doesn't let up it can make the difference between getting a decently sharp shot and not.
Built PRO, Great Price
Handy to have.
This thing is pretty handy to have specially when you're in the field and want your accessories to be readily available within reach. It can't hold extra heavy stuff though particularly a lens, but then again, who wants to put an expensive lens on a cheap hanging container?
Helpful in challenging conditions
I found it toe be effective when forced to plant my tripod in moving water. Toss a few rocks in the hammock and it damps the vibrations quite well. And is light enough to carry along all the time just in case it is needed.
Exactly as you'd expect
I got this for my wife after a trip to Iceland when she had difficulty with the tripod in high wind. I like that this is just a fabric hammock - it's silly to buy pounds and pounds of ballast weight when we like to travel - those 'kg's add up quick on our airline luggage! This is simple, though, and there's almost always something around (rocks) or with you (water bottles) to toss in for stability, then you pack it up easy peasy. Also doubles as a handy little shelf for things she needs to set down but wants to keep off the ground.
Compact & it works!
Unassuming little gem - love it!
