Bottle Cap Tripod Is A Must-Have For Amature Photographers

By Luke Anderson

How many times have you wanted to take a nice picture, but found that you really needed a tripod in order to pull it off? I rarely ever tote around a tripod, since my DSLR is cumbersome enough by itself. While I’ve seen several rather portable tripods, I’ve yet to see anything quite as interesting as this Bottle Cap Tripod.

Everyone close to me knows that I’m a big Mountain Dew drinker, so there’s a good chance that I have a bottle close by. Now if I just had one of these little caps in my pocket, I’d be all set. This tiny gadget screws into the tripod mounting screw hole on the bottom of your camera, then you slide it over a bottle cap. Sure, it’ll be a bit top-heavy, but in a pinch it would serve its purpose. For just $10, I’d say that it’s a worthwhile investment.

    This is a great piece of kit for the holidays! Althought I have to say that about a year ago i saw a slightly better version of this in a store here in the Netherlads: instead of having a bottle cap with a screw, it had a short 'pole' with rubber which you would place inside the neck of the bottle and then when you tighthen it, it squeezes the rubber and makes it expand in the bottleneck until it is stuck. This means you do not have to comply with bottlecap standards :) and that you could als use it on wine bottles or possibly even pipes (fences etc…)
    Anywho … for 10 bucks, a definitve thumbs up!
