This 3/8″ to 1/4″ Adapter Screw is super handy if you’re building projects that connect to a tripod or a camera. It’s a simple fix for getting a tripod with a 1/4″ machine screw fastened onto a camera with a 3/8″ thread nut.
It’s also very handy when 3D printing an enclosure that will connect to a camera/tripod because you can make a 3/8″ hole and then glue this in. That way you get nice strong steel threads and aren’t relying on your 3D print to match nicely with a 1/4″ mount.
This small and useful Shoe Mount / Bracket lets you take something with a 1/4″ machine screw (standard in video/photo work) and turn it into a ‘shoe mount’! It’s very handy for mounting LED photo lights (as seen in our example), flash adapters, video displays, radio slaves or virtually any type of shoe-mounted device. Great for use with our adjustable shoe-mounted pan tilt.
This Swivel-Head Pan-Tilt (PTZ) Shoe Mount Adapter allows you to attach something with standard 1/4″ machine screw mount to a camera’s shoe mount, with free range of motion! Loosen the side screw and the ball-joint is free to move all around, then tighten it back up to keep your gear in place!
Great for camera, video or robotics projects where you want a basic adjustable pan-tilt.
This is an industry standard 1/4″ Photo Screw with a handy D-ring for tightening purposes. This will fit standard tripods, cameras, photo lights and more. The D-ring flips up to make it very easy to adjust by hand
This 1/4″ screw to 1/4″ screw is very simple but you’ll find it an essential adapter for video/photo contstruction projects.
This little screw connector is the glue, bringing together products that are meant for each other. Like a Shoe Mount / Bracket to it’s LED photo lights or a Swivel-Head PTZ Mount Adapter to the top of a camera! The 1/4″ thread is standard in equipment so if you ever want to attach two of them together, this is the right thing to use.
