Intro: Tripod Pills
I've this idea when I didn't found nothing to fit my needs: a tripod to my cellphone.
This phone have a nice 2.0 mp camera but there is no hole to screw a conventional tripod base.
You will need just:
- cd marker
- empty vitamins flask
- an optional saws.
Watch out! Do not cut your hands with cutter. It's quite easy to forget your finger in the path when you are cutting flasks.
Step 1: Marking
Using a cd marker pen cross out a cross on flask surface as wide as your cellphone dimension
Step 2: Cutting
Cut on marks and fine tune the borders of the holes. At this point do some fitting tests, putting cellphone in the holes. Tip: the plastic can be sharp and scratch your phone or cut your fingers. Pay attention. Move smoothly.
Step 3: Flask Dividing
At this point I prefer be using saws. Some borders of the flask are to much strong and using a cutter could slip in the middle of flask and ruinning the job. Tip: It is better puts the top cover before starts sawing. It turns flask structure more tight and hard. This resistence is welcome when sawing.
Step 4: Finishing
That's it. Enjoy your new tripod and use with automatic trigger. Now it's time to you shows up in your own photos.
Tip: it can be used as cellphone craddle (rest base), when not in use. Using it this way hints one to not take it for recycle garbage on housekeeping (:-)
