iPhone Holder for Tripod
Category: iPhone, camera, tripod, camera holder, videos, technology, office
Problem: I wanted to use my tripod supporting my iPhone. There is no standard attachment location on the iPhone for a tripod.
Action: I cut a piece of PVC pipe in half, leaving a rounded part about an inch long at the end in which I can insert a nut that would receive the standard tripod attachment screw. The edge of the iPhone could nestle in the cut out part of the PVC pipe, held in place with rubber bands or tape temporarily.
Result: It worked pretty well.
Additional Thoughts: I’m sure there are any number of accessories on the market now that will hold an iPhone on a tripod. If I was using the iPhone on a tripod frequently, I would go purchase one.
