Collapsable iPhone Camera Handle by TheNewHobbyist Dec 18, 2011

Featured Thing!


I really shouldn’t have a problem filming things with my iPhone without getting fingers in the way of the lens, but it happens. I’ve also noticed that it’s easy to accidentally rub the microphone and mess up the audio during recording. Because I have a couple holiday concerts coming up that I’ve been asked to record I thought it would be worth figuring out a better way to tackle this problem.

I started with my iPhone Tripod attachment and added the new features I was looking for. First I modeled a handle long enough to hold comfortable, but short enough to carry in your pocket. Then I removed the tripod nut hole and added a slot for the handle to slide into. I also added a slot in the handle and a tab on the camera mount so the two parts slide together for easy transport in your pocket or bag.
