Since I'm not using the sticker mount, I think I'm going to stick it to my mobile phone and see if I can now have a really neat desktop mount for my mobile phone - to use as a tripod for the phone AND to use as a stand for the phone, to keep it at any angle that I want while watching videos, reading emails, or just having my phone on my nightstand, desk etc...
I suggest that they ship these with multiple sticker attachments... I'm going to stick one on the back of my phone, then attach my phone to my car's dash somewhere. Perhaps that's an idea for another product: a way to attach your phone to your car dash and move it around from portrait to landscape... I would LOVE that, especially since there's seriously no longer a reason to have a factory GPS in your car since phones do everything you need them to!
Small size makes it easy to carry. The magnet is strong enough to hold my camera at various angles but not so strong that it fails to pivot smoothly.
The only problem is, attaching the screw mount to my Sony DSC-HX9V blocks the battery door and the data/charge jack. So I would have to put the sticker-mount pill beside the screw hole, right? Not so fast.
Once I apply the adhesive pill, then how will I use a standard tripod without having a leaning camera? Obvious choice is I would have to remove the adhesive tiltpod pill. What good is a one-time attach? I suppose I could drill a shallow hole in the tripod base plate to provide clearance for the adhesive pill, not my preference. I guess I should just to carry the screw mount and base plate in a baggie in my camera case and attach it as needed.
The wrist strap is a lower string quality than what came with my camera, I don't trust it. Attaching the fob-shaped base to the end of the strap would be annoying for me. Also my cases don't have extra room in the camera chamber. Nice idea for carrying, doesn't work for me.
My camera has the following precation: "Do not use/store the camera near a strongly magnetic place. Otherwise, the camera may not properly record or play back images." Therefore, I have concerns about damage to my camera using this product. On further research as to why, I see there are sensive gyro-sensors for image stabilization and a magnetic compass for record of shooting direction (GPS data) in my camera. I don't think it's worth the risk.
A little magnetic plastic stand attaches to your camera's wrist strap so you always have it and a little round head nut screws into the tripod mounting hole on the bottom of your camera. You can easily remove or tighten the nut with a coin.
To use just lay the stand on a semi-flat surface and the round head nut sticks on the bottom of your camera to the very strong magnet in the stand. You can pan and tilt the camera in a decent range of movement and it stays in position.
The magnet in the stand was powerful enough to securely hold my camera vertically on street poles, iron railings, etc and my camera is a larger / heavier compact. Just be careful not to get it too close to your credit cards and other magnetic media!
I used it with a timer on the camera to catch group photos including myself and to reduce hand movement on long exposure shots.
I also used it to capture quick videos without all the camera movement.
The friends on the trip with me got home and bought one after seeing me use it.
I strongly recommend this to everyone with a compact camera.
You do not need to use the provided case to use this Tiltpod on your iPhone 5/5s
I got used to running my iPhone naked since the iPhone 4. I guess I'm lucky or I have sticky fingers or something, but (fingers-crossed) no broken phones yet. I'm a minimalist. The case is, imo, pretty cheap anyway. Don't get me wrong... there's nothing "wrong" with the case. It is, perhaps, the thinnest plastic case I have yet to see for the iPhone, but it provides ZERO protection (other than minor scratches, maybe) for your phone. As it adds no real functionality, I don't see the point, and to be honest, I wish they would offer a Tiltpod without the case and drop the price back to $20, like I paid for the iPhone 4/4s version.
I also wish they would sell just the mount for the phone, as the base for this is nearly identical to the prior version. I got the black version and the only difference was they 4/4s version had a green "foot", which I kinda dig, and the new one is all black. The new one also feels a little stickier, but that could be due to the pocket-time the older one got. Either way, I took the new mount and switched it to the older foot and no issue.
So in summary, this is a great product, again. If you had the 4/4s version and were used to running your phone naked, have no fear - this one works naked as well, no need for the case. If you have not purchased a Tiltpod before, let me assure you I had the same questions about the thing as you do. I bought it at the same time as the Glif, and the Tiltpod became something I use almost everyday. It's hard to describe just how much utility this thing has, but if you need a way to mount your phone for photos, shake-free video, or even a desk mount for your iPhone, this product is perfect.

This thing works great for lighter cameras... Still useful for a little heavier cameras if you get a little inventive.
It stays right on the camera and doesn't get in the way.
Loved the concept but it didn't work well with my camera because of the battery door placement and where the screw hole was for tripods. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Brian Kobeluch
