Two Leg String Tripod with Coiling Device

two-leg-string-tripod-in-use

What was called a “string tripod” was featured here before, but really, it’s more of a “string monopod.”  It should keep the camera somewhat steady, but two cords in tension would seem like a sturdier setup.

This “string tripod bipod” from Instructables, does just that, allowing for a loop of cord to be formed into a triangle similar to the person above’s stance.  Although it seems you could just loop a length of cord through a 1/4 – 20 eye bolt to make a circle, this version goes one step further with a piece of wood forming a “coiler.”  With this wooden fixture, your cord shouldn’t get wrapped in a knot, and you’ll hopefully be ready for that perfect shot sooner!
