Make An Articulating Camera Mount With A Lamp And Wood

Sometimes, you need more than a tripod to get your camera mounted in the right place, or you might need a moving mechanism for smooth video shots. Either way, you can repurpose an old articulating lamp to turn it into a camera stand.

Maker and engineer Jason Poel Smith created this project, and it doesn’t require much: just an articulating lamp, wood and screws. You just remove the light and the power cord from the lamp, create a new mount from the wood and screws, and then mount your camera. You can add more flexibility as desired.
