Typically, the weight of DSLR cameras and their large lenses are supported solely by the strap on the camera body. The lenses dangle awkwardly, requiring the use of your hands to protect your investment. The Lens Cradle removes this awkwardness. Utilizing the center point of gravity of the lens tripod collar, the Lens Cradle supports the camera and lens in a secure horizontal position. With a camera strap, it provides balance and stability to your camera and lens. The Lens Cradle also can be used to carry extra lenses.
The Lens Cradle offers a variety of mounting options. The most stable and hands-free position is with the arc up, in a cradle fashion. Invert the arc and the cradle becomes an instant bipod, converting what was previously an obstacle into a photographing platform. Effortlessly rotate the Lens Cradle and tripod ring 90 degrees for swift and sustained portrait shooting. A camera strap alone cannot provide this balance, stability, and usefulness.
