Stabilize Your Camera for $1 with a Washer, Bolt, and String

You’ve likely seen this DIY trick before, but it doesn’t hurt to share this for those who haven’t. Instead of carrying around a tripod or monopod, you can easily stabilize your camera using a washer, some string, and a bolt. It’s a cheap and easy stabilizer that you can carry around with you in your camera bag for those moments when you wish you had a steadier hand.

    This can also be achieved with a monopod. Less bulky than a tripod but more bulky than this. Happy medium.
