    I was googleing some different camera stuff (wish listing for income tax returns...lol) and started looking up gun stock mounts. I found this do it yourself page making one out of pvc pipe for video cams. Made for $6.99.

    Thought someone might want to see this and adapt it to their camera. Maybe tape on a remote trigger on it to shoot like a rifle. Nature Photowalks?

    See that's what I'm talking about.. Why spend $200-300 on a fancy shmancy rig when you can make one out of PVC and be done with it for pennies on the dollar..

    Someday I'll make something similiar for Sportshooting. With a rotating carousel of some sort. One side for the 400mm and then the other for the 70-200mm.

    Thanks for the link..
    pssssst... Did you bring the batteries???

    No Problem. I like doing things myself...like Home Studio out of sheets and shop lights. This is just one more thing to try after I get a good DSLR. My S5700 does not have a remote trigger function.

    If you make one...post it up here and lets see how it looks...maybe let us know how it feels to shoot with it too.

    Just remember, if you buy the mount screw...the bolt threads are 1/4-20 , the website didn't mention the thread size of the bolt.

    Hate to see someone try a 1/4-28 by mistake.

    Also be careful of the PVC cement, keep it far away from the camera equipment!
