    I am trying to look for a few things to help make my product review videos that I post on Amazon look better.

    I am look for a Bluetooth button to stop and start a new video so I do not have to touch the screen.

    I am also trying to look for a iPhone 5 or iPod touch holder/ stand so my iPod touch 5 that I use as my video camera that holds it above a table at least 3 feet at a vertical angle. See picture:

    Ask me if you need more info to help me.

    if youre going to edit the video anyways why not just cut out the parts where you start/stop the video.

    I am right behind the camera. I knock it sometimes causing the video to shake. I want a button that starts an stops video. I hope you can help.

    You could use the clicker on the headphones/mic to start/stop the video, no need for bluetooth. For the stand, why not get a holder like the Joby Gorillapod Griptight and attach it to something extending above the table?

    That's a good I idea but I do not want something that that connects physically to the iPod. The gorilla pod has nothing to attach to. It wail just make it taller. Thanks for trying helping though.

    I use a similar setup for macro photography. I suggest a camera tripod with a reversible center column. Something like this Manfrotto should work.

    You can then use something like this to attach your iPhone to the tripod plate: http://www.adorama.com/COCIPHNHLDR.html?gclid=CMCEzOmun7oCFUPl7AodUE4Afg

    If you have a bigger budget, you can go for a tripod with a horizontal center column for more options. Just keep in mind the super cheap tripods aren't very stable.

    Thanks but I am looking around the 30$ range. Thank for trying though. If anyone watches unboxthreapy on YouTube, you should know what I am talking about with his setup.

    This is the one of the setups Unbox uses. Definitely going to cost more than $30.

    You'll probably need to get a bit creative to pull this one off. Perhaps you can create a new product of your own! Seems to be a market for it.
