    You inspired me. For those of you that have a bunch of gorillapods and mini tripods lying around your home like I do, this adapter ought to do the trick:

    Amazon.com: Esonstyle Mini Ball Head with Lock and Hot Shoe Adapter Camera Cradle Color: Ball Head, Model: , Electronic Store & More: Electronics

    Note: I will make zillions of dollars if you all use that link.

    I recently bought a Osmo and the original tripod DJI is absurdly expensive here in Brazil (The equivalent of $100).

    I have some equipment to photograph my DSLR camera and my old GoPro.

    See the alternative that improvised tripod for Osmo.

    Yeo I think I looked at that adapter too. The advantage I found on the Esonstyle is a cold shoe mount on the bottom.

    Put your old "Mic stand" to work. I used an old table-top mic stand to facilitate a "top down" POV work bench shoot. Worked great and was FREE once I was able to locate it and dust it off in storage. Clothespin style mic clip is what I have..... holds the OSMO tight. A floor mic stand would work great too.........

    B&H carries the mic clip for $6.00......On-Stage MY200 Clothespin-Style Plastic Mic Clip MY200 B&H Photo

    Does the OSMO use a standard thread that most tripods etc. uses?
    And is the Rosette mount DJI´s own invention or is it a standardized thing?

    As somebody has mentioned earlier the OSMO accessories is a bit too expensive here in Europe, so it should be nice not to be restricted to only DJI accessories?

    Im especially looking for a car mount that works with the OSMO and doesn't cost 90 USD plus shipping.

    Im looking for a car mount for the OSMO that doesn't cost 79 Euro. I have seen this mount online for only a few dollars. Should this work as a car mount, or maybe the suction cup isn't strong enough since its only 1 suction cup?
