DIY Laptop Holder for your Photography Tripod

Are you shooting photos with your digital camera tethered to your laptop? Then it’s time well spent to quickly assemble your DIY laptop holder in 3 minutes or less. Trust me, it’s literally on a shoestring budget. With your laptop hanging nice and close on your tripod you avoid accidents like people stumbling over the USB cable. And it’s handy to have your screen really close to your camera.

A couple of years back I assembled this thingy because I wanted to have something small, light weight and easy to use for my travels. And it served me well in all those years. I like it much better than all the solutions I could find in photography equipment shops.

Check out how to assemble the thing in just a few seconds:


So please tell me, are you tethering your laptop when shooting photos? Where do you usually place your laptop? Do you have any other ideas for laptop holders? Or you know shops that offer some? Please tell us in the comments.

I wish you good light!
