The 5 Best Mobile Tripods For Smartphones

On-the-go creativity just gets better and better.

Mobile photography doesn’t have to be just you and your hand. You can utilize tools for extra support, especially when looking for something to improve the quality of your images or footage. Not only will a still camera phone provide extra lights or audio, but it will enhance the stability of shots and angles you normally couldn’t do without a tripod.

We’re going to dive deep on the best phone tripods (and MagSafe compatible mounting systems) that work with both iPhone, Android, and Pixel customers. We're also including our highly magnetic line of MagSafe Mounts for creatives wanting to go beyond a stabilizing tool. Read more below.
