A number of participants in the GoPro Forum have been making
panoramic mounts out of kitchen timers such as the Ikea Ordning timer shown at
This is a great idea. The timer rotates through 360° in an hour.
By setting the camera to take one image per second, the resulting pan
will contain 3600 images. A video can be made lasting one or two minutes,
or selected images can be chosen for stitching into a panorama.
Construction could not be simpler.
Just stick one of the flat surface adhesive GoPro mounts directly on top of the timer and you are done.
Ideally, the lens should be centered on the rotating mount, so the GoPro mount must be offset from the center, but that would only be an issue if objects are relatively close to the camera.
I use the Ordning GoPro mount when I need a portable stand that can be placed on a table or a railing.
