Introduction: GoPro to DSLR Mount

About: Product Design Student @ LUCA - School of Arts Genk.

As a photography and videography enthousiast, I got inspired by the short movie 'Above SF' by Marc Donahue to make a short movie myself about my upcoming trip to Warsaw. I have a DSLR camera and a GoPro Session, so I only had to find a way to connect them together.

Which I eventually did!

Step 1: ​Things You Need for This Instructable:

- your DSLR's hot shoe cover cap

- GoPro piece

- a strong glue ( one that can hold plastic together )

- an electric multitool ( with a cutting and sanding tool )

Step 2: Cutting

I started by cutting away the plastic that I no longer needed. After measuring the length and width, I added some marks on the bottom of the GoPro piece to make sure that I didn't cut away to many plastic.

Step 3: Sanding

After the cutting process, I sanded the GoPro piece and washed it in water to get rid of the fine dust.

Make sure you'll add small cuts to the hot shoe cover to get a better connection between the glue and the hot shoe cover.

Step 4: Glueing the Two Pieces Together

Finally I glued the two pieces together by following the steps on the packaging of the glue.

Step 5: Final Photo

Now you'll have your own carefully crafted piece to put your Go Pro on your DSLR camera.

I hope you enjoyed this Instructable ( Which is my first... ).
