Create an adjustable camera mount for iPhone 4 (or any other phone with a smooth back), using an Ikea desk lamp
This is an easy build that will give you a steady mount for your smartphone for filming or taking photographs.
Using the saved lamp bolts, bolt the 4-hole piece of aluminium bar to the lamp.
Bolt the suction cups to the 2-hole piece of aluminium bar with the 70mm bolts and 4 nuts.
Using 4 more nuts, bolt the suction cup part to the lamp mount, and you're all done!
Enjoy your new steady filming! This also works really well for mounting the iPhone as a video podcast camera.
