DIY iSight Tripod Mount

Isight I was just making one of these when MAKE pal Steve sent this in! – “Well, as you may know I like to shoot a timelapse video now and then… I’ve been using an earlier version of this iSight tripod mount for about a year, so today I thought I’d share the new and improved version: It consists of a couple of pieces of hardwood braced at a 90 degree angle… I have one piece of wood with two holes in it (the mounting plate), and then a piece of wood that is 90 degrees to the mounting plate for the iSight bracket to grab on to, and then two triangles (with the corners cut off)… “ Link.

    Here’s my less elaborate iSight tripod mounting technique. The pics linked show the iSight mounted on a mini tripod, but it works just as well on a full size. Its quick and cheap.

    My own solution uses the iSight magnetic stand and a threaded piece of metal to fit on the tripod:

    My solution’s good for lazy laptop people who don’t want to detangle the isight from it’s regular home in the laptop mount. :)
