Smart phone tripod mount
« on: December 15, 2014, 04:43:27 pm »
Howdy folks,

So far I've only found the Glif and the Joby GripTight. I'm not sure if the Glif is safe and the GripTight seems rather pricey. But if it works and doesn't disintegrate like the cheap knock-off I got before, then sure, I'll get it.

Is anybody using either or something else that's worth checking out?

I'm using an iPhone 4S, by the way.

Cheers.

ETA: Nevermind, I got one of these, imagine what kind of cool stuff I could shoot with this:

Yes!

The Joby GripTight with the GorillaPod is wonderful. They are great products int heir own right and IMO worth the price. I can hang it anywhere I want which is great. I hang it from a floor light next to my e-drum kit or from a mic stand usually. If you wanna go crazy, you can also hang it from the headstock of your instrument. Phones tend to be heavy though, so it might work better with a GoPro which I don't own.

Besides the Joby, I use standard small tripods that you can get... I don't know, I've gotten one as a gift and found one unattended at uni. To put my iPhone 6 (bigger than the 4S I had at the time) on them I use the clamps you get with most selfie sticks. You can get them separately for a few bucks on eBay. When I have space on a stool or my desk/table, I use those.

The Joby GripTight is definitely a better and more solid feeling phone holder, but both get the job done fine.

I have to do this in my car. Most of it sucks. Some is worthless.

This is the good stuff.... it ain't cheap.

It depends what your application is.

There is also this small magnetic base deal to mount a phone in your car or to a desk. I can ge tthe name if you want. It's not really a tripod. Not adjustable. Just stick it down and that's it. Like a small ball.

The guys that run their trucks 90-120 mph across the desert use that Ram stuff.

That thing you pictured is supposedly a respected device for it's intended use. Which is a solid static setup.

If there will be any kind of shaking going on most of that stuff is miserable.
