I found myself wanting to both video the action at Unicon XV and take photographs and ended up holding my camera on top of the vado and shooting both video and photo at the same time.
This is a photo of how I hold the two (note that I use two hands but my 2nd hand was taking this photo!):
This is a photo I snapped (and used as part of my 365 Photo Challenge):
And this is the video that I shot at the same time:
43 seconds into the video is when I took the photo above.
