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

1 1/4" hex bolt, 3/4" long
2 1/4" hex nut
1 bottle cap

1/4" drill bit

< 5 minutes

< $.50

Step 2: Drill bottle cap

use a 1/4" or slightly smaller drill bit and drill into the center of the bottle cap.

Step 3: screw nut 1

screw one of the nuts onto the bolt all the way down.

Step 4: add to cap

screw the bolt onto the bottle cap.

Step 5: screw nut 2

screw on the other nut.

Step 6: use

screw the bottle cap onto a full water bottle. depending on the siz of the camera and location of the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera, it should hold.
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.
<p>Oh thanks</p>

simply. perfect
you can add sand in the bottle
that's not a bad idea for a more stationary monopod.

Crap I was just about to make my first instructable off this, good thing I checked first.
Not exactly a tripod when it dosen't have 3 legs. Its more of a monopod.
Anyway, it's genial.
