Three Good Ideas
Three good ideas for a rainy day - four actually.
First is the Steadypod. Read the special advertisement that we put in the Sunday Times to see the illustration of this handy device. It is a very travel-friendly way to get camera stability in places that don't let you use a tripod. Still camera users will be able to reduce their shutter speeds and get more low-light shots and video enthusiasts will be able to show their motion-picture shots without having to make excuses for the violent jiggling. Unless they are filming certain forms of middle east dancing and then violent jiggling is applauded...
Second idea off the rank is the Hoodman Hoodloupe 3.0. Try as you might in bright sunlight, you will not be able to see the back screen on a compact camera or DSLR to make out what you have captured. The Hoodloupe is the answer - focus the adjustable lens for your own eyesight and clap it onto the screen. Clean and clear. Note for residents of Vancouver: the bright sunlight we mentioned does not apply to you. Ever.
Last one is the funnest one - the ALM handling frame and lens that converts your camera phone into a respectable camera. It has enough weight and shape to let you hold the phone steady and an additional lens to widen the viewpoint, as well as a small additional microphone. It really does surpass some compact cameras when it comes to everyday shots.
