I know there are a lot of LJs that own ipads and tablets. Has anyone built an adapter to hold their tablet for picture taking and videos? I’ve looked around on line and I will not pay $50 for something I’ll probably, maybe use 2-3 times a year. If there are I would appreciate it if you would share the outcome.

If not then I will design and build my own and publish as a project. Just thought if there was anyone that had already done it then why reinvent the wheel.

i built one for my iphone…so i could take video of my woodworking. HERE is the project. If you look through my blogs, you can find the “how-to” videos I shot with my iphone…

just a bigger scale for the ipad. Pretty simple design…just a case that can hold the ipod and accept the right size screw on the tripod…

You even built your own tripod. Very cool. Do you just press fit the phone into the holder?

yeah…it wasnt very elegant….just press fitted. I tried finding some of those swinging-holdy-in-things that are on the back of picture frames to hold the iphone in….but no luck. Couldnt find a source to buy them. The tripod was completely for function, not looks…..hence the horrible looks….

the top has a cut out and is beveled so the camera lens could peak out of the case. I also have screw inserts on both sides so I can place the iphone vertical or horizontal.

Here is my next tripod i’m working on…..its slowly coming along….kind of lost interest in it….its a little “cooler” though – round legs this time….
