Re: How to secure a camera to a table?

Here's my previous low magnification macro rig.  It's since been replaced by one more suitable for higher resolution vertical macro work with microscope objectives.  I originally mounted it to the table top with a couple of c-clamps, but when I finish it rebuilding it for general still life work, I'll mount it on sorbothane feet like my better rig.

It's a piece of remnant board from Home Depot.  The ballhead is mounted on a furniture foot from Home Depot, screwed into a threaded insert mounted in the board.  There are t-slot channels on either side to mount flashes.
