- Better stability, and comfort (compared to smartphone solution)

- Simple to build and to use
To build this adapter, I simply took a thin piece of wood and holed it with a 10mm drill. Then I pasted the “magnetic strip” (which connect foldscope with smartphone) with vinyl glue. After 24 hours I put the camera into the hole (the sides of camera are longer than 10mm, so the cam is stable). The following picture show the adapter and final result:
Sorry for my english, this is my first “serious” post in a foreign language! For italian Foldscope users I posted a longer and more complete article on my blog: Raspberry to Foldscope Adapter
And that’s a video!
