All-purpose Camera Support

One very handy photo accessory – and one of the least expensive – is a small beanbag. As a support, it has almost unlimited uses.

When you're grabbing quick shots out of your car's window – think wildlife at Yellowstone National Park - a small beanbag helps steady your camera, and protects both camera and car window.

Want to be in the picture, but not carry a tripod? A beanbag both levels your camera and keeps it safe and steady while you're using the self-timer.

How about close-up shots of nature? Using a beanbag allows you to angle your camera and get in close. A beanbag comes in handy almost anytime you need to steady your camera. And they're small, light and cheap.
