Introduction: Make Your Own Camera Monopod With a Bottle-cork

This tutorial is so easy to do and also very cheap. All you need to success is a 6mm long tripod screw (1/4") and a bottle-cork. IMPORTANT. You need to have the exakt thread on the screw for this purpose or you will destroy your cameras thread. If you are unsure, bring your camera to the store.

I bought my screw in the hardware-store for around 0.30$.
You also need a drill with a 5.5mm diameter size. 6mm might also work.

Step 1: Drill a Hole in the Bottle-cork

Start by using your drill and make a hole in the center of your cork.

Step 2: Insert the Screw

Screw on the screw from tha backside of the cork. Screw it all through the cork so that the screwhead (funny word for a swedish guy like me) meets the surface of the cork. I used a kitchenknife but a screwdriver would be more preferable (not needed thou).

Step 3: Attach the Bottle-cork to the Camera

Now when the camerascrew and the bottle-cork has turned into one part, attach it to the cameras thread.
Fill the bottle with some water to make it steady an you're done!

Good luck
