My $1.81usd Tripod and Mount Solution !

I bought a half a dozen tripods and mounts for almost peanuts !
Too lazy to post any photos, but this combination worked out beautifully to aim my WF-501B, A100 and SK68 torches. The tripod even acts as a pistol grip to hold the torches !

Tripod $1.16ea

Mount $0.65ea

The quality of this tripod is awesome, many reviewers rated it as good or better then ones costing much much more for stability. The flat and legs are even rubberized to boot !

Thanks!

Interesting. Especially the mounts. I saw that on AliExpress, they are more expensive.

 

FIAT LUX!

I just checked the price for the SmallRig Superclamp …$26.00usd !
I just grabbed two of these smartphone mounts for $0.76 to use on these tripods, will use it with a lux meter app on my smartphone on one end and my torch on the other end to measure the brightness. Placing the tripod on the floor with 12” × 12” tiles will give easy way to calculate distance throw brightness.
