Welcome to Camera Bean Bags. We are a family run business specialising in the design, manufacture and sale of very high quality Camera Bean Bags. The Bean Bags have a vast and varied use for the modern photographer. They can make an addition and alternative to tripods/monopods. Extremely light weight and easy to use, the Bean Bag offers stability and ease in the most demanding conditions.
We offer a fast friendly service and quality hand made products.The idea originated In the autumn of 2006 after booking a safari to Kenya. My husband ‘placed a request’ for a Bean Bag Support for our journey. Due to a tripod being quite bulky and would have certainly been awkward to use from a moving Jeep! After making a prototype and furthermore after a few adjustments the first of many camera bean bags was born. I laughed at him when he suggested selling them on the World Wide Web, but over the years the business has grown. As a result I have shipped to all regions of the UK and as far away as Australia.
Each Camera Bean Bag support is made of two interconnected bags. They form a “H” section allowing the bags to rest over a car door, fence panel or platform as well as anything else you can rest it on really. The Bean Bags can also be used in a conventional manner. They also become a great bit of equipment in many scenarios and they give a stable area to protect your camera and enable a comfortable photography position. Therefore this can help with long sessions of photography as a result improving comfort as well as improving image quality.
The Bean Bags come with an attached carrying strap that doubles as a bracing support and a strong Velcro and press stud fastener. The handle can attach the camera support to a rucksack as well as many more other items.
They come ready to use with light weight polystyrene balls and are available in three sizes:
Standard – 250mm x 170mm x170mm Weight 140g
Large – 310mm x 210mm x 210mm Weight 220g
Super – 380mm x 270mm x 270mm Weight 330g
All weights and dimensions are approximate and you can see these on the product pages. The bags are easy to re-fill if this ever needs to be done.
The Standard Bean Bag will suit Compact/Bridge Cameras and most lenses up to 200mm, Large bags for telephoto and Super-Size for super telephoto lenses.
The bags are fantastic at eliminating camera shake which can improve the quality of pictures captured by a camera.
All sizes are available in a variety of colours and they can also be made to measure if requested.
