this was my first instructable and i was really just trying out my new camera, so its not supposed to be magical, (even though i wish it was)
<p>Thanks.. I always wanted to make one for my yunteng monopod.. I'm gonna make one for my How to's on youtube..</p>
Thanks man I'm gonna make one <br><br> And where did you get the idea<br><br> <br><br><br> GOOD JOB<br><br> THANKS<br>
A Powerade sports drink bottle is more stable as it does not have bumps in the bottom. It is a flat round bottom - and it's prettier. Also the plastic in the Powerade bottle is Much heavier than a 2 liter. Now break out the finger paints and sparkles!
That is the 32oz powerade bottle :-)
lol <br /> hahaha ...good...<br /> have a nice day
Technically, this is a monopod, not a tripod, as it only has one leg, but I get the idea. Why did you wrap it in duct tape?<br/><br/>Rotate the first picture to upright. Generally, the first picture in an iBle should be the best, and that means right-side-up.<br/><br/>Almost all camera tripod mounts are 1/4&quot;-20. That is, 1/4 inch, 20 TPI. Slightly more accurate than <em>a bolt that will fit</em>.<br/>
actually, . . .doesn't it have Five legs (literally points where it touches the surface, because the 2L bottle has 5 little nubs on the bottom) ? :P so it's a pentapod
im guessing tpi means "threads per inch" right?
"5. Duct tape (Optional)" No. Just No Duct Tape will never be optional as long as I live.
hey,its good for a first instructible...mine was realy terrible...i did mine to test my camera also.
I do this all the time, except that I use a nut to hold the bolt on
Yeah me too.
ahahahah this was my first instructable and i did it in 5 min, and truthfully, i just did this to test out my new camera,
(Deletes half-written Instructable, resolves to finish other ideas more quickly). Oh, and pay attention to what Cameronss said about the photos.
Oops, I've just noticed, this has been <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Quick%2c-cheap%2c-and-easy-tripod/">done before.</a><br/><br/>
That's actually pretty awesome! Nice job, but I don't think my camera has a screw at the bottom.. Just checked. It does. Nice job!
