The hardest part about taking a good picture is holding the camera steady and good lighting. This stand does both of those things. None of the joints are glued to you can get the angle and focus you need on just about anything.
You can even add lights.
Using the timer and flash and extra lighting you can take some really good pictures even with a cheap camera.
I thought some of you guys might like this for taking pictures of tractor parts and such. I use it alot for my gunsmithing work. I can zoom in on the guts and take a real nice picture.
Let me know if you want to make one I can provide instructions, measurements and a cut list.
