    My wife asked me to shoot instructional videos for her origami class. I have an old clamp with a tripod screw on it, which I attached to my wife's adjustable painting easel; thankfully the easel column is pretty long, and can extend so the camera is directly above her hands for a clear shot of her folding the origami paper. Used my E-PL3 and the 14-42 Mk II R (the lightest combo I was comfortable attaching to the clamp), with SEMA mic. A bit patched together, but it gets the job done.
