The Green Pod from The Pod is a bean bag that serves as a camera platform for DSLRs with zoom lenses up to 200mm long. The Green Pod is constructed of sturdy nylon and filled with plastic pellets, which can be removed and added in order to customize the Pod based on your specific camera/lens and the requirements of a particular shot. The stable camera platform is ideal for shooting outdoors from unpredictable surfaces.

The Green Pod features a 1/4"-20 screw at the edge, enabling you to mount a camera with a zoom lens. An included adjustable strap can be threaded through the pod's loops in order to secure the camera's lens to the bean bag. The 0.75 lb bag is small and light enough to travel with your everyday gear, ready for any opportunity to support your camera.

The Green Pod is sealed with a strong hook & loop fastener that can be opened and closed as many times as needed. You can change out the plastic pellets for any other stuffing. With a green vinyl bottom and water-resistant nylon shell, the Green Pod is suitable for use in rainy conditions.

Does this work on Tameron 150-600 MM lens?
Asked by: Ken
It will fit on that lens but will it work. I would have to say no. That's a long lens you're talking about. I have used the Pod with two of my lenses, my 24-105 f/4 L and My Canon 50mm f/1.4. It works great with the 50, the 24-105 no so much. The camera tends to tip forward a bit. Once it's tipped forward it's stable but not the support that I was looking for. The reason I got it was to you in dimly lit places where you can't take a tripod, likes churches, that's where I like to use my 50mm. Hope this helps.

I use a Sony DSLR with a vertical grip and most often a 35/105 zoom. Will this work with the grip installed?
Asked by: Bob
The Pod The Green Pod Camera Platform will not work well when the vertical grip is connected, if one is using the 1/4 20 camera mount on the Green Pod platform. But one can use the included adjustable strap threaded through the pod's loops to secure the camera's lens to the bean bag. Using the strap will allow the platform to secure the camera when using a grip on the camera.

Is this good for the 7D with a zoom on?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have used the Pod with my Canon 5DMKIII and a 24-70mm lens, which is one of the largest lenses in my bag on a daily basis and it is very stable but if you are looking to use a much larger lens, then I would look to use a tripod. I would see the pod as an accessory for casual use if you don't have the means to carry around a large tripod. Also as you are placing your camera on a bean bag, it can take a minute to get the picture straight or on target. These day's I've opted to leave it at home and purchased a carbon micro tripod.
