I just want to contribute a little tutorial on how to make a wooden base for any digital camera, to take pictures at night to obtain a better perspective.
Step 1: Planning Base.
First we begin to take action based on where we will put our camera.
After these measures begin to happen to a piece of wood for cutting.
Measurements are in centimeters (cm).
Step 2: Molded Wood
Once we have the wood pieces according proceed to mold the tripod base using a rasp and sandpaper sheets.
After verifying that the wooden base goes well at the base of the tripod can give a smoother finish with the sanding sheet.
Already having pieces of wood, began to drill them with a drill of 6.5 mm for transpazar the piece and use a sword to drill the screw head is inside the piece of wood.
In my case for my camera screw that fits its base is 1/4 standard hex head rope so will press from the bottom with a 11mm die.
Then will stick two pieces of wood as shown in the photos and let dry.
Step 4: Test and Assembly.
Once the wood pieces are dry, we can put the screw from the bottom and screw our camera to the base.
Well hope it will help to get an idea of how to adapt your camera to any tripod base, because not all are equal.
Any doubt I can help, thanks and see you soon!
