    Thank you for that, I would never have thought that shooting bullets could be useful for shooting photos - but I guess that they are similar

    First, I found it wasn't particularly good when using a really big zoom (600mm) because the issue is less steadiness and more about weight.

    Second, I used dental floss. Light, in a handy container, won't stretch like twine does, cheap, and if you're traveling it's usually in your toiletry kit.

    But for something like being on a boat, I find it usually better to find something to lean against rather than use a string stabilizer.

    I was thinking of using it for macro shots.
