Never mind the DT-22, here's the 'Mobile Phone Tripod Holder'!

It's true that the accessory title rather gives the game away and isn't inspiring, but this is an accessory that's much needed in the smartphone (and general camera phone) world. Steve Litchfield muses on a predecessor and and reviews the latest product that claims to be able to hold your phone while it snaps or videos away.

Read on in the full article.

Thats very cool shame there's no recent Nokia worth buying this for. I imagine it would snap given the amount of pressure required to trigger the N86. Perfect for the N82.

It's mainly for video taking, of course. Using a tripod for stills is strictly semi-pro territory, I suspect! 8-)

It didn't even occur to me these would exist.

Aside from being sad no one can be bothered to make a 1/4" threaded hole so you can just mount a normal tripod, I made my own (sadly, no photo) for the N95.

It's just a block of wood, with a slot the phone fits into. A bit of duct tape to pad the phone, precise-fit and provide some tension. A poorly drilled hole accepted the tripod thread.

Took 10 minutes and no money (scrap lumber) to make.

In this situation, why not just use a proper camera?
