The incredible camera stand
This idea came to me when i saw that cameras have a hole below them with some grooves
The tripod people make undue advantage of our unawareness

So I made this and could even shoot some videos for youtube-

anyway, this super cheap camera stand is gonna save your bucks!
You can modify it by just placing the screw in any kind of holder or make a holder for yourself
Also, you can 3D print holders with a hole to get going

1/4"-20 thread.(american) i.e. 1/4" dia. X 20 threads per inch.

Step 1: The Parts

parts needed
- a 1/4" 20 thread/inch bolt - atleast 1.5 inches in length
- few nuts to fit in the bolt
- few washers
-a 1/2" wide ring(not necessary)
- a ponted kinfe /scisor /or anything to make a hole in the plastic container
- a suitable spanner/wreach
- a plastic container- atleast 1.5" in diameter and 1.5" tall (you can use medicene containers/cosometic ontainers/candy containers etc.)
or
a wooden stand with a hole to fit the bolt in( you can make one yourself as I did )
or
a metallic clamp with 2 holes for mounting on a bicycle
or
a 3d printed structure suitable for the project

Step 2: The Stand-Summary


you can use any of the following stands-
- a plastic container- atleast 1.5" in diameter and 1.5" tall (you can use medicene containers/cosometic containers/candy containers etc.)-switch to next step for how to make this
or
a wooden stand with a hole to fit the bolt in( you can make one yourself as I did )-see pic 2
or
a metallic clamp with 2 holes for mounting on a bicycle
or
a 3d printed structure suitable for the project

Step 3: (My) Plastic Stand

You need to cut the plastic container just leaving about 1.5 inches from the base- try to keep it as low as possible
We will be needing the lower part(the base)
and then make a hole on the base in the centre
you are done!

Step 4: Fixing the Bolt and Say Cheese!

Put a washer in the bolt
Then add a nut to fix the washer
Then put the ring upon the washer(refer the picture)
Then pass the bolt through the hole in the plastic container
The put another nut on the screw and fix it tight

But if you don't get the ring  or if you have a wooden stand See Here
place a nut about halfway though the bolt
then pass the bolt through the plastic/the wooden stand
place a washer and put a nut
Fix it tight using a spanner



You're done- Say cheese !
