I have been having trouble with my videos.  Because I normally shoot the videos my self as I am in the videos sometimes what I think I am

showing is not what gets captured.

This causes all manner of problems.

I recently bought a new tripod and it came with a cell phone mount and being unable to use more than one camera mount on the tripod at a time I wanted to figure out a way to use it.

Since a 1/4 20 bolt has the same threads as a camera mounting screw I figured I could hang the cell phone mount somewhere.

In looking for a good place I realized my head would be perfect.  Since my head is always pointing where my eyes are looking at a diy camera mount hat would be perfect

Making the Camera Mount Hat was easy.

  • First I took a punch and made a hole in the brim of the hat.  If you don’t have a punch a hot soldering iron would work.
  • Next use a washer and run the camera mounting screw through the hole.
  • Finally screw the camera to the screw and have a good time taking video.

This project could not be any easier.  Of course my wife could not stop laughing at how funny she said the contraption looked.

However, looking is a small price to pay for making videos you find useful.  As said in Jerry Maguire “I’m not in it for the money, its all about you babe”.

Seriously, I do have a horrible lack of camera skills, and bad equipment had plagued me.

Everytime I save enough for better equipment I look at the reviews and promptly buy the wrong thing.

I hope that this helps me better captiure the DIY projects I am working on.

Unfortunately, in a video I am working on now, I used this device when workingo n putting foam in the ceiling of the conex box and got sick watching it because I kept looking from place to place.

Its not noticeable wearing the hat, but watching the video I was like “Dave, can you ever stay still”.
