This is my specimen platform for photography. I wanted to make a video of it because it's the easiest way to show how it works. All parts can be purchased for under $20.00. And it literally assembles itself. I cannot claim this design concept as completely my own creation as I have modified the design of another mineral photographer Pete Richards who got the idea from the late Erich Offermann a Swiss photographer. Pete posted his design online here: http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=12067&highlight=#12067

That looks really cool! I'll have to give it a try.
(Also, it's good to see you posting around here. I need to spend more time on RHL.)

Interesting to see that someone has created a product like this for GPS and cell phones in cars
