A copy stand is perfect for straight down video or photos. The biggest problem you may have is that the LCD may be set for slightly angle viewing and if you photograph it head on, the display may not be very distinct. You should do some tests at various angles to see what works best. If you do need a slight angle, then your standard tripod should work.

On further thinking, you could make a sloping board (ie, wedge) and put on the copy board. This would allow for straight down video with the calculator at a slight angle for a better view of the display.

Good luck with the video.


P.S. - Yippee! This is my 50th post and I am now a "member" of the new forum.

Yeah, it seems that the 17bii display works best at about a 15 or 20-degree angle. Changing the contrast may work also, I'll have to play around with that.

Hmm, this is my 100th post I think, is something magical in store?
