Solid Two-Handed Grip for Your Smartphone

Hands are shaky, especially when holding something small like a smartphone. Not a problem when texting or surfing the net, but shake is a big problem for still photos in low light or video. It is difficult to grip a smartphone firmly enough for low light photos and shake free video.

Grip your smartphone firmly with both hands.

HandlePod solves the problem with a firm grip and plenty of leverage to prevent shake and provide smooth video. It is also self supporting on a level surface and acts like a mini-tripod. Hold it by hand against any solid surface for rock solid, tripod-like stability. And you can attach it to many objects with the elastic cord.

HandlePod puts blur-free stills in low light and smooth, shake-free video at your fingertips. But using a smartphone on HandlePod or any tripod device requires an adapter. There are a number of smartphone tripod adapters ranging in price from a few dollars to almost fifty.

Choose the Right Tripod Adapter

Selecting a tripod adapter involves several considerations in addition to price. Will it open wide enough to accept any smartphone you will use. Does it hold tightly and securely (an important consideration if you are to attach to a moving vehicle)? Will it take any phone no matter how thick without having to remove the case?

The adjustable Dot Line smartphone tripod mount holds any smartphone securely.

One product that fills all of these requirements is the Dot Line Smartphone Tripod Mount available from B&H Photo for $7.95. It features an adjustable screw that allows it to open as wide as four inches (10cm), more than enough to accept any available smartphone. The soft rubber grips that hold the phone extend ½ inch so a case is no problem. And the adjustable screw can be tightened to hold the phone securely.

The combination of HandlePod and the Dot Line Smartphone Tripod Mount provides a cost effective handle grip and tripod-like stability for low light stills and shake-free video on your smartphone.
