I had thought and I had a brilliant idea to create iPhone mount. I have extra lay around the free iPhone case cover from Apple. I bought years ago the L bracelet for camera mount for 50 cent. I am sure you can find online camera supplies or go local camera stores that sell very cheap the adapters, L bracelet camera mount or whatever.
You will need simple few items:
Iphone4 case cover.L bracelet for camera.
Tripod.A drill and drill bits
A screw driver.Electrical tape
Plier or nose plier
It only took me 10 minutes to drill and screw them on L bracelet and iPhone4 case cover. Then I can set my iPhone on my tripod vertical or Horizontal for videoing and Facetime. I can set the iphone vertical or Horizontal perfect level by using the free apps iHandy level. It works perfectly and level.
I am very happy with it.
More coming for DIY iPhone Steady Cam and Len mount when I will have a chance. I will post them.
Step 1: IPhone4 Case
I made the determine where I want to mount the L bracelet on the iPhone4 case. I put 2x4 lumber beneath for me drill through.
Step 2: L Bracelet for Tripod and IPhone4 Case Holder
I use the Plier to break off the plastic round housing on metal L frame. I do not need that knob and plastic round housing any more because my tripod already have screw to hold the L bracelet. Be careful to break off the plastic and you want to save 4 small screws that you want to re use them again for next step.
Step 3: Decide Where to Mount L Bracelet on Iphone4 Case
Then I put electrical tape on back of iPhone4 case over the screws to prevent scratches on my iPhone4.
Step 5: Done!
It is strong and very durable. No shaking or fall out from the case.
