sandbags for photography

Filled, heavy duty Saddle Sandbag 15 lbs (Black)

What's the best sandbag for photography?

Sandbags are one of the most important, versatile, and frequently-used accessories among photographers. They're helpful not only for getting the perfect shot -- they're also important to prevent equipment from tipping (for the safety of everyone around AND of your valuable equipment).

Photography sandbags are used in dozens of ways, including anchoring C-stands, tripods and light stands, as counterweight for booms or tripods, minimizing movement and shaking in windy conditions. They can even be used to minimize camera vibrations and shaking or as a camera rest or "support saddle" when filming from a low angle.
