Smart Phone Holder Question...


Recommended Posts

So I got a new smart phone holder from eBay, but I can't get the lens of the phone to line up with the centre of the EP clamp.  The camera lenses aren't central on the phone, but off to one side. 

Any suggestions, please?

You need to rotate the phone clamp so that your camera lens is on the centre-line of the adapter (see green lines).

It's fiddly and requires a lot of adjustments up-down-left-right to get the camera lens in the best position.  Just keep at it.

I figured out as I'm not trying to photograph in the normal horizontal and vertical plane, that it doesn't have to be aligned like it would be for earth bound objects. 😉

You can always rotate the eyepiece to get the framing you want too.
