    Interesting accessory for those who shoot (?) from the car

    Came across this interesting accessory which may be an aid for those who, like me, occasionally find the best way to sneak up on birds is in the car.

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/182118462...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    It was ostensibly designed for shooters, the rifle variety, as an aid to steady their firearms.

    I can see it being quite useful to prop up your gear, particularly when using a big lens.
    Cheers

    D600 : D7200 and too much stuff to list

    Tis an interesting idea...I've used a small bean bag sorta thing before, but it's been too low. I like how he stacks a few bits on to lift things up.

    Might get an old foam mattress and cut some pieces out with the electric knife and save myself a few bucks I reckon

    Thanks -
    I'm not keen on negative numbers. I stop at nothing to avoid them…

    Cheers Gazza.

    I keep a bag of rice in the car but it's also too low.

    I reckon the foam idea, if it's not too soft, would work very well.

    I'll drop into the local rubber store and see if they have any suitable off-cuts.

    Good idea Mate.
