There are dozens of photography and video apps available for the iPhone. Here is a simple, non destructive method for attaching a tripod mount to your iPhone/camera phone to allow you position your device however you like. Ideal for stopmotion and timelapse.

Step 1: Parts list

What you will need:

A hard phone case
A tripod mount from a scrapped camera or a 1/4-20 nut from a hardware store (1/4" 20 thread count)
Small screws
Polymorph (plastic granules which melt in hot water).
Very hot water

Excellent example! Thanks for sharing. By the way, if you're in the UK, Poundland sell mini camera tripods, so you could adapt an I Pod to fit those?
