To reduce camera shake, photographers can increase their shutter speed or use a tripod or monopod to help stabilize the camera. However, there are times that you don’t want to bring an extra piece of equipment with you, and there are also many locations don’t allow tripods and monopods.
A museum is a perfect example of a dimly lit location that may not allow the use of a stationary piece of equipment like a tripod, leaving you with no choice but to increase your shutter speed and hold your breath before releasing the shutter.
Leave it to an Eagle Scout to offer a stealthy and cheap stabilization solution that not only works but might also make you feel a bit like a ninja when you use it.
