Do-It-Yourself OWLE Bubo Neck Strap

Last week, HHH reviewed the OWLE Bubo, a new iPhone camera grip. Shortly after, an HHH reader asked if the OWLE came with a neck-strap. I’m guessing that once the Bubo takes off, there will be an abundance of accessories. But until then, I present the “Do-it-yourself, incredibly-easy, down-and-dirty, dirt-cheap OWLE Bubo Neck-strap.”

I took a trip to the local hardware store, and picked up a couple 1/4″ x 2.5″ Eye Bolts. They’re a bit long for my taste, but the store was out of the 1/4″ x 1″ bolts I wanted.

I screwed the bolts into the holes on the top corners of the Bubo.

Then I attached an old luggage strap I found at the bottom of my closet. Naturally, a professional camera strap will give you more flexibility and comfort… but I was aiming for cheap, not snazzy.

And there you have it. A fully functioning OWLE Bubo Neck-strap for $1.50.  Not too shabby!

Shang-Chi Director Directed From His iPhone

I enjoyed reading this brief ScreenRant story, so I thought I’d share it here. It describes how Destin Daniel Cretton, the director of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings, was forced to direct an important scene via his iPhone while in the hospital for the birth of his child! Sadly, it doesn’t divulge the details of that unusual workflow, but it’s an excellent reminder that we’re all toting the world’s most versatile piece of filmmaking gear in our pockets and purses!

  1. Filmgeek, your video was posted 8 days after HHH posted this. I’d say yours looks a lot like his. Great minds thinking alike. :)
