Try using a creepy zoom ( ) on a tripod-mounted camera, aimed slightly down or up and you will quickly see the problem.

If you always shoot hand-held, it's not an issue at all, but on a tripod it can be quite annoying.

The rubber band solution works alright on a tripod, though, as long as you have a band of the appropriate size.
