Fixing Sony’s ZV-1 Camera’s Design Flaws with the Laser Cutter and CNC.

I recently picked up the new Sony ZV-1 camera with the accessory grip for vlogging outside the shop. It’s a great camera but the one thing that bugs me about it is the grip doesn’t have a way to connect to a tripod. So in this video I’m using my Glowforge laser cutter and Inventables X-Carve CNC to make a “pocket” for the grip to slide into and can then be screwed onto a tripod. This is a great example on how modern digital tools can solve problems and make custom fixtures.
