I'm looking for a gadget to mount my phone on my tripod

I already have a tripod. I'm thinking of something that can be screwed on to it.

Re: I'm looking for a gadget to mount my phone on my tripod

I would probably just make something. Take a piece of 1/2 inch plywood and mount a 1/4x20 tee nut through it, then glue a piece of plastic on top of that. You can then use one of those suction cup clamps that are designed to attach a cell phone to the dashboard of your car to hold the camera to the mounting plate you have built.

The whole rig would probably cost less than 10 dollars to make, and would take less than half an hour.

Re: I'm looking for a gadget to mount my phone on my tripod

Just go to amazon and search for 'iPhone tripod mount' . You'll get plenty of hits.

For example, this one, at $3.15
