i'm having a new dock put into my back yard and i want to place my camera in the same place every day and take the same picture so that i can get a ice bunch of pictures i can put in a slide show to show the progress. i was wondering if anyone had tips for positioning the camera. there's no place in the house that i can put the camera that would be good because of anges/screens. and i don't want to leave the camera outside obviously. is there a good way to go about this?

I would suggest buying a tripod with a quick release on it and anchoring it to the ground with some cinderblocks. Then you can just go out, slap down the camera, shoot, and take the camera inside when you are done. Probably want to get a tarp to cover the tripod when you are not using it too.

Well the thing is the quick release is the important part. I've never seen a mini tripod with a quick release. Even if the tripod is anchored in exactly the same spot if you're screwing the camera in every time it's going to be skewed and inconsistent. Depends on the tripod, you can probably eyeball it and get it pretty close but your final product will be jittery unless you painstakingly align and crop each shot.

Also I'd use something mechanical to anchor the tripod, tape probably won't stay stuck too well in the winter :)

i gave up on the idea because it's too late and theres no good one angle, i've resorted to just takeing a shitload of pics :D

and yeah, the mini tripod is a screw on, though it's no big deal, i can always just eye ball the angle and cro the edges, the perspective wouldn't be a big problem because of distance
