Taking photographs at a slow shutter speed can really benefit from the camera stabilization afforded by a tripod, but often times lugging around and setting up a tripod isn’t so practical. The string tripod is an old photographer’s trick that will give you a reasonable amount of stabilization, while still allowing you quite a bit of rotational freedom of movement.

Oh, and it costs under $5 to make, sets up quickly, and will easily fit in your camera bag.
