Bottle Cap Tripod is McGuiver-ish solution to shaky pictures

Nov 19, 2008

I think just about everyone has found themselves out and about somewhere looking to take a picture, only to realize that they need a tripod. But since most of us don't tote around tripods, we end up with shaky, out of focus and generally crappy pictures. But the Bottle Cap Tripod makes the best of a bad situation.

The Bottle Cap Tripod is cheap but rather inventive. It works like this: you take a standard bottle cap from a soda bottle, screw the Bottle Cap Tripod gadget into the mounting screw hole underneath your camera and then slide it and the camera over the bottle cap. Simple enough, right?

And while this might make for a bit of an unsteady tripod, you can remedy that by using a bottle that is still filled with liquid. Then all you have to do is set it on a table, set the timer and get to taking some steadier pictures. Plus, at just $10, it's pretty worth the investment.
