    useful piece of gear with minor flaws

    I purchased this Joby action kit tripod because I was looking for a solution to help me use my cell phone for video recording. I needed a lightweight tripod and this one fit the bill. I like that I can use the bendable legs to attach my cell phone to many different locations (i.e. a chair or other furnature). That versatility make this tripod more useful than typical fixed leg tripods. I also like that this kit comes with a cell phone clamp that has a build in "cold shoe" on the cell phone mount itself. That allows me to add an external mic so that I can get better out of phone audio. That feature alone is great because I can have a run and gun vlogging set up if I want. I do have concerns about the longevity of the kit though. The cell phone holder seems flimsy but time will tell how long it lasts. Overall, I like this kit and would purchase again especially if I needed something right now and could not wait for mail order items.

    I needed a tripod to take pictures for holiday of my family in front of the tree. I had planned to use voice prompts from my Samsung phone, but there was an added bonus with this tripod which was a small bluetooth remote. This has been a cool little device! Not the biggest or sturdiest tripod, but again, it has filled the need well. Maybe a bit overpriced, but I did not have time to order online so I guess you pay a premium for picking something up in a store these days. Amazon has comparable products for less. I would say in the end the bonus remote made it worth it overall.

    Better than functional

    The only issue I have, and it may be due to the size of the joints which can be remedied by purchasing the larger version, is that when wrapping the legs around a pole or bottle, the grip is not as tight as I would have preferred. Aside from that issue it is a great product and works as advertised. I use it as a camera grip and selfie stick primarily for my phone but as a stand when watching videos on the train in many positions and hasn’t failed me yet.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Jobys products and this tripod didn’t disappoint. I got it for my GoPro but I’ve been using it for both it and my phone. The best feature being the legs of the tripod. They’re able to bend or twist around anywhere you need it. I’ll even bend the legs together and use it as a regular handle for my camera. This thing is easy to use and very portable. If you travel or just want a good grab and go mini tripod, look no further.

    Like the summary says little pricey for what you get. Holds phone in Landscape only doesn't go portrait. kind of inexpensive plastic. expected the legs to hold a little bit better. Overall it does hold the phone securely,and has been helpful. Using with a Galaxy note 8 in a waterproof case. I just don't feel it's worth $50 maybe $30 to $35 range. I could have waited till it goes on sale, but I haven't seen this product on sale that often.

    I purchased this in order to help me film at the paintball field. It worked for what I needed. You can use it as a tripod or grab it to use as a grip for your phone. The Bluetooth controller works but you can only take 1 picture per click, no burst. The legs bend and you can wrap it around a small pole or another object. Overall I'm very satisfied with this product.

    This product is compact and great for keeping in the car for those sudden needs for taking pics that need more stability for long exposures or for selfies. It is small enough to stick in a bag or your back pocket until needed. There are bigger sizes available for bigger cameras which I have also purchased for my DSLR.

    Handy little iPhone Tripod

    I looked a long time for a small tripod to hold my iPhone 10s and so far this one has worked perfectly. I wanted something small, flexible and one that would hold my phone with it in its caring case. The Joby tripod can also be attached to my GoPro which is a bonus I didn’t expect.

    Its a great package, just wasn’t great for me. I was happy with the idea of a gopro, phone adapter and a remote included for $50. Struggled for over 5 minutes trying to pair the remote, the gorillapod its small for some areas. Its only good for small poles or to stand in a table. Might end up taking it back!

    Able to hang my iPhone on fence backstop while videoing ballgames. Though I must admit, I have been using a mini bungee cord more than this, as a ball to the fence causes me to re-adjust. But still does what it says.

    I was sold this small tripod to set out a chair to video a conference I was attending. I wish now I would have brought a sunpak real tripod.. I believe this product is better suited for a phone or go pro type camera...

    The tripod works well for GoPro and cell phones. If you have a larger phone like the S9+, this tripod will likely tip over. The legs need to be a little longer to allow it to balance correctly.

    Finally, a cellphone camera mount, that fits with thick protective cover. And can handle the extra weight of the cover.

    I bought this for a trip to India and the Maldives - to use with my GoPro - and I loved the product. It was perfect for the GoPro and I could use it on the go & even under water. I would recommend.

    I had to buy this one because the smaller version did not hold my phone correctly. This upgraded Joby fits the job for any phone and secures its position very well.

    With this kit, you don’t need another person to take a good picture of yourself. The remote clicker is phenomenal and the tripod stabilizes your every shot! This is the ultimate selfie kit that knows no limit!

    This was a gift for my daughter and overall, she really likes it. It gets a 4 star review only because she wishes the legs were a little longer ... it is sometimes hard to wrap around thicker railings.

    This tripod can be used anywhere with either an iPhone or GoPro. Its legs can bend to hold onto pretty much anything. Hang it from something tall to make up for its short stature.

    I got this for my phone but had to return it because it was too awkward to use with it. This type of stand would only be good for a camera.

    Easy to use and adjust with one hand. Comes with adapters to fit a cell phone or go pro. The best part is the remote controller. Much easier to take selfies.
