The people at Photojojo are at it again, this time they're selling the Tiltpod, a keyring sized go-anywhere tripod for your naked (case-less) iPhone 4 or 4S.
Measuring just 2 inches in length, and 1.5 inches at its widest point, the Tiltpod has a rubberised grippy base that holds firm on any rough or smooth surface, and has an iPhone friendly, strong but safe magnetic ball head, that allows you to smoothly pivot your iPhone when attached.
- Keychain tripod for caseless iPhone 4/4S
- Grippy base for flat or uneven surfaces
- Tilts your iPhone to almost any angle
- Perfect for portraits, low-light photos or time-lapses
- Works in portrait or landscape
So, what do I think about the Tiltpod? Well, I was surprisingly quite impressed with this little gadget. Whilst it is designed as a keyring, I wouldn't want to attached more than 1 or 2 keys to it, and because I use a case, the Tiltpod is of no use to me, however I think it's the perfect little device (well, until the next perfect little device comes along) for anyone who uses their iPhone 4 or 4S without case protection, like many Olloclip owners do, and for someone who would like a go anywhere tripod like device with pivoting ball head.
So how much is the Tiltpod? Well, currently the Tiltpod is priced at $15 USD, which does sound quite expensive for what it is, but remember, this gadget will fit in your pocket (which means you won't leave home without it), and offers quite a lot of flexibility and stability, and $15 USD won't break the bank.
For more information on the Tiltpod, head over to the Photojojo website.
Note: If you're an iPhone 5 users, or like me, you use a case, then stay tuned for an announcement of a truly pocket-sized tripod, that really will fit in your pocket ;-)
