    I've reached the age where my brain went from "You probably shouldn't say that" to "What the hell, let's see what happens."

    Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about time, masters worry about light.

    Today is a gift. That is why we call it the present."

    I'm thinking a adjustable nylon strap, like the kind you use to secure sleeping bags and backpacking stuff, some very thin rock climbing rope or just some black tie-line, and a 1/4"-20 eye-bolt. I think I can find all of that stuff in my garage.

    They may have stated it in the wrong way, but this is something I saw someone do 25 years ago, so no, its not new... but its a good idea, becuase if it worked 25 years ago, it will DEFINATELY work now.

    Nice idea for sure. Had I used this technique at a recent autoshow, I could have saved at least 10-15 pictures that were blurred and when I looked closely, saw clearly it was vertical motion blur.

    Warning, you will look silly using it... lol.

    An excellent idea that works very well, but as GRYPHONSLAIR pointed out its not new. Over thirty years ago I saw an even cheaper, more portable version - it did away with the expense of a weight and just had a loop in the end of the string to put your foot through. I suspect that the original idea came about long before I first saw it.

    You can also improve stability by having your camera strap around your neck and looping it around your elbow to pull it tight. I believe riflemen sometimes do something similar to steady their aim.
