Raspberry Pi, Camera, cables and tripod are not included!
We designed this mount to create an affordable, tripod-compatible solution to help you monitor "things" with your Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi Camera Module 3- great for keeping an eye on 3D prints, monitoring rooms, access points, timelapsing plants and more!
You don't need to mount it on a tripod as it will happily sit on a desk or shelf, but it has a 1/4" hole ready in case you do (you'll need a nut as this isn't threaded). There are some great ready-to-go software/OS options for these kinds of projects, such as OctoPrint for 3D printers.
The mount comes as a kit which requires some simple assembly.
Please note: the camera is mounted upside down with this mount. Libcamera and some other purpose-built applications allow you to easily rotate the image (use --vf in your command), however some don't - check before buying!
Updated following customer feedback!
Following feedback from customers, we've made the mount slightly thicker to give the little arms more strength. It's a very subtle change but the extra thickness avoids breaking the thin sections.
This makes it quite difficult to separate the two sections after the initial assembly, but there's no reason to do this anyway. Once it's built, leave it be (or just be very gentle!).

This listing is for the mount only which includes the laser-cut Perspex parts and fixings. You will also need:
