Picture of Quick, cheap, and easy tripod
this is a very simple tripod for a camera that you can keep in your pocket. just screw it onto a water bottle, which shouldn't be a problem since there are coke machines everywhere.

Step 1: What you'll need

Picture of What you'll need
1 1/4" hex bolt, 3/4" long
2 1/4" hex nut
1 bottle cap

1/4" drill bit

< 5 minutes

< $.50
That's a monopod
Well actually yes and no...Monopod (literal sense yes, ofcourse), you need to hold it in hand and shoot. Since we dont need to here, its not a monopod.

Oh thanks

that's not a bad idea for a more stationary monopod.

Not exactly a tripod when it dosen't have 3 legs. Its more of a monopod.
