The ‘No Pod’ Camera Stabilizer?

As akward as this 'No Pod' item might look, it makes sense. Sometimes you just can't run around with even just a Monopod, but you'll need something to help keep you stable. Sure there's been tons of DIY projects using this technique, but at least this version won't make you look completely silly. Another version of using this resistance technique is this Steade-Pod, shown here.
Personally i'm not sure why anyone hasn't made a DIY version using those resistance rubber bands. I'm thinking that would work much better since it would make the camera feel like it's 10, 20, or even 30 lbs. heavier. The No Pod Camera Stabilizer Available Here.

I'm going to officially coin the term for these things as 'Resistance Camera Stabilizers', because No Pod just makes umm... No Sense.

  1. I actually tried making a DIY version of this last night using the only string I had on hand which was some kite line. What the guy in the YouTube video says about the string not "stretching" is critical. My string was stretchy and I could feel that it was not helping me as much as it could. Will try with a different material or possibly buy the steadepod. I like this idea as a very lightweight and unobtrusive way of steadying shots while on the go.
