Tripod Mounting for the Logitech c910

The logitech c910 is a fantastic camera. Hidef, fast (meaning bright), and fast (high FPS).
But it doesn't have a tripod mount.
I just came back from Home depot and did this:


Here is how it's done:
Buy a 1/4-20 nut (6c)

Superglue gel ($2.75)

Tripod vivitar ($34)

glue the nut to the end of the webcam's base

let it dry then mount
That's all.

And if you like this, vote for McDROID, my first game.

or buy it to support indie development.

Thanks !

  1. Hi

    It's a very good idea.
    I search the web for a tripod for this cam and YOU HAVE the solution.

    In french, I'll say 'Chapeau bas'

  4. THANK YOU! This was the one issue I had with this camera, and you've come up with an elegant and inexpensive solution!

  5. Thank you! So simple, yet so practical...

    You'd have thought webcam makers would fit one as standard these days, 6c (10p) is nothing to them and it would make their products so much more useful!

    1. It's probably more than that because you need to account for returns due to cheap metal use or defect in the plastic construction and people forcing their tripod screw in there (oh la la).

  10. Brilliant! I just added a 1/4-20 nut to my C910 last night. The only change I made was to mount the nut to the outside of the folding part so I could still clip the webcam to a monitor (and not scratch the monitor with the nut).
