Attach your LCD viewfinder to your Swivel camera screen!

So I came up with a simple way to attach your LCD view finder or LCDVF to the swivel screen on your camera or camcorder.  The main purpose for this was to avoid physically attaching a metal mounting plate to the screen.  Doing so would cause, in most cases, the user to be unable to close their screens properly inwards to avoid any damage to the display.  But the method I came up with allows you to firmly hold your viewfinder against your display using this simple trick.  Take a look and take care!

Monopod Dolly Adapter

So something I noticed after a bit of searching is that it seems no one has ever bothered to use a monopod on a camera dolly.  Then again, how could they, there wasn't any simple way to do so...Until now!  In the video below I show you an extremely simple way to build a monopod dolly adapter.  Something you can attach to your existing dolly...well, one that has a flat surface and can have holes drilled through it.  In the video I use an 1.5 inch pvc pipe but you could also use a 2 inch version if your particular monopod does not fit into the 1.5 inch.  Here is the video and best of luck!  Let me know if you build this in the comments of the video or this post.
