Hey Rama and Allen - here's more evidence of what Rama was talking about the other day - camera stabilization via a simple string no less.
We've had ongoing debates over tripods and camera stabilization. I take lots of people shots, so I don't typically use tripods. Of course, I have several tripods and have been shooting forever, so I have an opinion on the matter. Rama and Allen both take outdoor landscape type pics, and have been discussing which is the best tripod.
Rama as always had some interesting things to say on the topic and mentioned that if you tie a string to the center column of even a cheap tripod, let it hang to the ground and step on it, you get a very stable platform.
