5 Awesome Mini Tripods for Your Phone
Phoneography has come a long way in the last few years. Not only do many of our smartphones offer high resolution print-worthy photos, but quite a few have a front-facing camera, making the art of the self-portrait that much easier.
But sometimes you need a little extra hardware to really get what you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking to take a video and need a steady hand or want to jump in the picture with your friends with help from a self-timer app, what you really need is a teeny tiny tripod! Here are 5 we love.
1. Tiltpod Mobile ($15): The Tiltpod is a keychain tripod with a magnet ball allowing you to pivot the angle of your phone to just about anywhere. It’s made to work with the iPhone 4/4S but could probably be hacked to work with Android phones.
2. The Glif Plus ($30): This one is a small stand as well as a tool for attaching your phone to a traditional tripod. This one also has a ligature attachment for carrying as a keychain and currently only works with iPhone 4/4S.
4. Gorillamobile Flexible Tripod ($21): When the original Gorillapod came out, amateur photographers everywhere rejoiced. It can stand anywhere, and works with just about any camera. Naturally, there’s now a mobile version!
5. iPhone Shutter Remote & Stand ($40): For the ultimate in self-portraiture on the go, go for this shutter remote and stand combo by Belkin. You can take photos from up to 30 feet away, and it’s particularly awesome for stop-motion. This one’s also just for iPhone.
