Does anyone know of any type of clamp or adapter I can use to mount my iPhone on a tripod or monopod? Both have dovetail clamps on them.

I fell off a ladder while cutting some branches and shattered my right leg and elbow. The camera on my iPhone is all I can use for awhile and my left hand isn't as stable as I'd like.

How about sticking a cheap camera plate to a car dash mount with some superglue?

Then again, sounds like a good excuse to buy a new compact :smile:

Well the iPhone is all I can use for now; at least while I'm in rehab. I just want to find a device to connect it to my monopod maybe. I know it sounds crazy but I'm also bored out of my mind.

Fred, sorry to hear you are out of commission..

I am just throwing out a very basic idea here. With a quick trip to Home Depot one could craft something that would work using the iPhone Dock ( http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB484G/A ).

I would think at a bare minimum gluing a nut onto the bottom would be enough to be able to connect the dock to the tripod head, seat the iPhone..and you are ready to go.

There are some other more ingenious ideas out there..

and if you are really bored, here are some easy to follow instructions:

Hey Mark thanks for the DYI Link but I have no use of my right arm yet and I'll be in rehab for a little while.

I'm trying to check out the Ram mount but you need flash to see things on their site and all I have is my iPhone. I'll see if I can check out a laptop tomorrow.

Thanks for the ideas
