Hello Family,

I'm here in San Francisco and went into Adolf Gasser's (well known store) camera shop to show them an article in PC World about a company in Canada who sold 3" and also 5" sandbags that had a tripod screw-in fitting on it to fasten securly to your digital camera. I went back in and nobody has a clue as to where in San Francisco I can find that item. Does anyone have a clue who makes this item and where I can buy it at? Thanks

I had surrendered the above article to the store and it was my fault to not have made a copy. They seemed sincere at the time to order some, now the person and the article is gone. Thanks

I just got my red one today. It is 5" in diameter and about 1.17" deep. It is filled with those tiny blue beads, the kind you don't want to spill because they repel one another. I mounted my 30d with 28-135 lens. At first the bag seemed too small to hold the camera in my position of choice. It seems that the camera must be tilted up slightly so that you can scrunch the bag to provide support. If you were to have the bag on a table, you would have trouble looking through the viewfinder window (maybe my head is too big). Therefore you might need somthing on the table top or other surface to allow room to look through the viewfinder. The bag is tightly sealed on the bottom with overlapping velcro strips. When I travel, I will probably discard the beads to flatten the bag, then use rice at my destination. The bag looks like a useful device in limited situations.
