Didn't want to drill my Kodak Brownie Hawkeye or glue anything to it so I made this tripod mount. Thought others might like the idea. I have heard various ways of making a mount. I decided to make this version using hook Velcro on the bottom of the base, a small piece under the camera handle and a soft Velcro loop strap to go around the camera and attach to the Velcro points on the camera and base. I put cork on the surface to minimize slip and attached the base to an Arca Swiss style Manfrotto plate. The plate screws into a t-nut on the base and I painted the wood black. I am anxious to see what kind of looks I will get walking around with this. With a shutter speed of 1/30th to 1/50th the tripod comes in pretty handy, not to mention the available bulb mode. Judging by my test roll, my shaky old hands are going to need this.
