    Thank you-

    I think I mentioned mounting it to the front in my first post in this thread.

    This should be considered as a prototype-
    though I doubt if I'll ever get around to making the improved MKII version...

    You did, but I did not grasp what you were saying until I saw the photos. I am going to try and rig something similar.

    I fully agree. I also have hundreds of students to whom I taught this technique before I-Phones were thought of.

    Let's hope you haven't been teaching camera design...

    Isn't a piece of card an unnecessary extravagance when you can easily make a frame using only your hands?
    Wasn't there somebody around before you, who taught hundreds of students to do just that?
