ENV2 Camera Phone TRIPOD mount

The ENV2 tripod in all it's glory

The ENV2 tripod in all it's glory. The "holder" is a 2x4 with a 1/2 inch slot milled in it.

As discussed in this post, I recently made some custom mounting hardware for my phone.  Although a wooden block seemed sufficient at the time, I’ve been trying out some stop-motion techniques and purchased a tripod.  Making my ENV2 mount compatible was a simple matter of drilling and tapping the bottom of the wood for a 1/4 – 20 screw.  Most tripods accept this screw and mine was no exception.

I really don’t intend to use this tripod – a 42 inch Targus Universal Travel Tripod that I got from Walmart- with my ENV2 as I do have an actual digital camera (a Casio Exilim that’s about five years old).  However, as with the original mount, it was a very easy project.

Below is a picture that I took with the ENV2 tripod in 640 x 480 resolution.

Although I can’t be certain, it is my belief that I now have, in my posession, the single most advanced piece of mounting hardware designed for taking pictures with the ENV2 phone.  I just hope that it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
