I use my Vacu-pod all the time! A Vacu-pod is a suction mount for your ball head, gimbal mount or any other tripod mount. I use mine whenever I need to photograph from a vehicle of at ground level. From my vehicle I either mount the Vacu-pod to the side window or hag from my sunroof depending on the situation. I have driven for hours in Yellowstone with my 500mm f/4 lens hanging from my sunroof allowing me to photograph out the passenger window. In Denali National Park, I have set up the Vacu-pod with up to an 800mm f/5.6 mounted on the passenger window and driven on the bouncy dirt road for hours that way! At home, when I photograph bluebirds, I position my car in the driveway and set up my camera with the Vacu-pod mounted on the driver side window as I sit comfortably in the driver seat taking pictures and listening to music! On the beach, I place the Vacu-pod in a metal pie pan and mount my big lens and push the pan across the sand as I photograph shore birds while lying on my belly. There are so many great uses for the Vacu-pod including wildlife, and macro photography.
