I'd heard of the idea but not seen it in action. I wonder if it really works - and why he needs one with a camera that has IS lenses ;)

Hmm..wonder whether it would work if you attached it to your belt loop?

Interesting how this IS system also improves the white balance.

It's a pretty old trick.

Here's another version, where it called a 'virtual tripod':

Philo's got a very interesting site in general.

I used to have a 'Focal Press' book published in the 1950's (?) which had a similar idea called a Chainpod - using bathplug chain!

An old idea but a good one.

Surely you could use this with a spirit level for panoramas? Combining the two ideas...

That's what 'Philo' does!
