PSA For Those Wanting a Cheap Way to Film From a Real Tripod.
$5 selfie stick from Wal-Mart
With a nifty secret
That screw the bracket goes on is a standard-size tripod mounting screw which means if you have a smart phone… (I’m using the first old one I could pull out of my phone drawer so I can take pictures with my actual phone)
Considering smart phones are often better for low light (due to built in LED lights that trigger when filming in darker conditions) and often better quality than cheap camcorders this is a mighty fine way to make an instant video camera for something like a webshow.
Helps me because I don’t have any lighting solutions to use my real cameras like my digital handy-cams or Rebel T3 right now.
