Photojojo is back with another interesting accessory for the photo taking iPhone user.
The Tiltpod Mobile solves a different problem. The first thing that pops into my mind when the word tripod is mentioned is a huge, ungainly piece of photo equipment that most iPhone users can’t and don’t want to carry around. But, in my experience, using any type of tripod with the iPhone’s camera vastly improves photo quality in a number of situations.
And the Tiltpod Mobile is a keychain-sized ball head tripod for the iPhone 4S/4. The device’s base holds it tight on both rough and smooth surfaces.
The mount also allows the iPhone to be placed in both portrait and landscape mode and pivot at numerous angles.
The only downside of the tripod is that the iPhone 4S/4 must be caseless to fit. So be sure your iPhone is held in tight before letting it go.
The Tiltpod Mobile is $15 and can be purchased directly from Photojojo’s website. Shipping is an extra $2.50.
While I like the idea, I wonder how well the device grips your iPhone in real-world situations. I think I would feel a little uneasy placing my caseless iPhone on it.
