In the autumn of 2006, after booking a safari to Kenya, my husband ‘placed a request’ for a Bean Bag Support for our journey, as the tripod is quite bulky and would have been awkward to use from a moving Jeep!
After making a prototype and after a few adjustments the first of many camera bean bags was born. I laughed at him when he suggested selling them on the World Wide Web, but over the years the business has grown and I have shipped to all regions of the UK and as far away as Australia.
Each Camera Bean Bag support is made up of two interconnected bags. They form a “H” section allowing the bags to rest over a car door, fence panel or platform etc. The bean bags can used in many different ways. They give a stable area to protect your camera and enable a comfortable photography position.
The Camera Bean Bags come with an attached carrying strap that doubles as a bracing support and a strong Velcro and press stud fastener. You can attach the Camera Bean Bag support to a rucksack etc. using the attached handle.
They come ready to use with light weight polystyrene balls and are available in three sizes:
- Standard – 250mm x 170mm x170mm Weight 140g
- Large – 310mm x 210mm x 210mm Weight 220g
- Super – 380mm x 270mm x 270mm Weight 330g
All weights and dimensions are approximate. The bags are easy to re-fill
The Standard will suit Compact/Bridge Cameras and most lenses up to 200mm, Large bags for telephoto and Super-Size for super telephoto lenses.
The bags are fantastic at eliminating camera shake.
All sizes are available in a variety of colours & can be made to measure.
