Technology is the power behind change, and mobile technology has increased dramatically in the last few years. The improvement in phone cameras is one striking example of technology improving the photography experience for owners of smart phones. More people are taking an interest in photography than ever before. Taking photos is fun, creative, and exciting when matched with the amazing accessories the latest technology is providing. With the number of smartphone purchases increasing daily, few people will ever be without a camera for that special moment.

Mini Tripods

Joby has created the GripTight Micro Stand, which is an excellent tripod for the smartphone. Small, lightweight, and easy-to-use, this little tripod folds up to 81 mm and fits comfortably in your pocket or bag. You can also attach the tripod to your key chain for ready availability. It features zinc alloy legs and a mini ballhead. If you are a fan of “selfies” you can have lots of fun using the Quik Pod Smartphone Selfie Pole and its built in “selfie” mirror. This great accessory includes tripod legs, carrying case, an adapter for your smartphone, wrist strap, and a caribiner. These are just two of the many tripods available for your smartphone.
