Hey all, someone gave me the idea to make an inexpensive panoramic camera jig using a kitchen timer for some awesome time lapse footage. The whole project costs under $5!! Unless of course you need to buy the camera as well ;)
Step 1: Tools And Materials
Ok so lets get started. As always, we begin with the tools and materials involved.
Pick up a kitchen timer (bought mine at walmart for around $3)
1/4"-20 bolt at least 1-1/2" long
Wing nut (can be substituted with a regular hex nut)
Stop nut (can be substituted with yet another regular hex nut)
small L-bracket (the smallest one you can find)
Tiny bolt (just found it lying around in my toolbox).
I found it helpful to have a drill with assorted drill bits and a rotary tool with a metal cutting wheel attachment.
