Camera mount for drink bottles
by juniortan, published
This is a highly portable monopod with a 360 degree swivel (well, in one plane at least :-) ball joint. It is to be mounted on top of drink bottles (will fit most PET bottle tops).
Easily carried around, this allows you to quickly set up self-portraits or even closeup of desktop items using one of the most common items around, an ordinary soft drink bottle.
Tested only on small point and shooters, and a Flip camera - i have no idea how the joints will work with SLRs :-) - in any case USE AT OWN RISK!
This design is Not Entirely Original - I first saw a camera adapter for a drink cap last week, and decided to integrate that with a ball joint found on Thingiverse - Thanks Erik and MakerBlock!
- Print all three parts
- Supply your own screw to fit camera mounting points - i used a screw from an old tripod.
- super glue everything together
- now go find a nice subject to shoot
oh, be prepared to print a few different sizes to find the best fit for the ball and socket. Stick to one socket size, for example, and try different ball sizes. That's in the scad file
