Great camera support concept!
I don’t have any first hand experience with this product (nor have I seen it in action) – so please keep that in mind. But every once in awhile I see something that I find is so intelligent that I can’t wait to post about it – so here it is…
The VBag… Basically this is a vacuum bag used to steady cameras (it’s filled with polystyrene pellets, once you remove the air from the bag with an included vacuum pump, it turns rock solid) – and in effect take over grip equipment, high hats, and perhaps even tripods… it’s flexible, travels in a bag, and – well pretty ingenious!
I’ve seen this technology used by Paramedics in Europe to isolate spines/necks in car accidents – it’s exciting to see this concept used for camera support. From the pictures and videos on the site – it looks like this packs, travels, and functions quite nicely! If anyone has any experience with this product – feel free to post in the comments section!
