Set the bag down on a fence, a branch, or whatever, then settle the camera into the bag. It's a great stabilizer--and it's cheap. One pound of dried beans from the market, one piece of strong cloth like denim, fold, sew three sides, fill with beans, sew the fourth side. Instant, squishy tripod.

Fantastic! I do have a needle and thread... and I guess DH doesn't really need that split pea soup. Vito, I'd be happy to make you a small one, too, if you'd like, I could send it to you. PM me your addy. No promises on when I'll get them done, tho. You might do well just to buy the legumes and leave them in the bag to use as a beanbag!

Hey, how about one of those giant bean bags from the 70's? Then you could nestle the camera and yourself in it! (excuse me - just an OF LOLing and slap-kneeing). OK, now I am going back to my Sunday afternoon honeydew list.

You've been working too hard on that list. Those bags weren't filled with beans--I may be full of beans, but they weren't. The truth about the filling always leaked out. Aha! I see you've remembered.

You're right, Barb, those weren't filled with beans - they were filled with foam-like pellets (similar to the foam packing peanuts but tiny and compressed). My mom worked in a fabric store when those things were popular. One lady bought a bag to make a chair and the bag of pellets broke open in her car and the static took over. Needless to say, the lady was irritated and had a weekend's job ahead of her cleaning those little things up...
