Gary Fong Tripod Adapter for iPhone 4

B&H # GAAI4 Mfr # TMA-IP4
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • Mounts iPhone Directly to Tripod
  • Can Be Used Vertically

The Tripod Adapter for iPhone 4 from Gary Fong is a bracket that slides on to an iPhone and mounts directly on to a tripod. It must be noted that the fit it is based on tension, so Gary Fong does not recommend aggressively shaking or subjecting the stand to sustained movement. However, if you're using it in conjunction with their optional Flip-Cage to stabilize vertical video, it's becomes a perfect combination.

Mount Basics
  • Mounts iPhone 4 directly to tripod
  • Can be used with an optional FlipCage to create a tabletop stand

      The iPhone 4 is a great little video production tool and this tripod adaptor makes it even better. Finally I can place the phone in a stable mount and shot video that is properly framed. This adaptor holds the phone very securely. My only complaint is the price which seems very high for this little piece of plastic. The threads for the tripod mount are in a metal insert so there's no fear of them stripping like they might if they were plastic. All in all I'm delighted and glad to have located this handy little tripod adaptor.

      I think the concept is perfect in its simplicity and expected to have to remove the bumper from my phone. What I didn't expect was that the Gary Fong tripod adapter would ruin the anti-glare film on the front of my iPhone 4. The molding process should result in a smooth surface between parts, but the tripod adapter I received had flash or a ridge of plastic where the parts were molded together. Be sure to run your finger across the surface where the part touches the front of your phone before you put it on. I am sure a little sanding will resolve the issue, but considering the cost for this simple piece of plastic, I expected better quality.

        Comments about Gary Fong Tripod Adapter for iPhone 4:

        My friend told me this was the adapter to get for the iPhone4S and she was right. It's simple and it works. Hold's the phone securely and it's easy to get the phone is and out yet I feel that's it held in securely. No muss, no fuss. I'm using to record audio and video. It's very useful, I should have bought it sooner, expands what you can do with an iPhone.

            you have to remove your case (know matter what type of case) to be able to use this adapter. It works great on the bare phone, but how many people don't have some type of case on their phone?

              fits very tight around phone so no worries of slipping out but have to take case off of phone if you have one. No big deal, good price and fits right on tri-pod or mono-pod. Like it alot

                It does the work. The only thing is that, since its not adjustable and it fits the iphone perfectly, you must take the iphone cover off every time.

                    This adapter has a VERY tight fit. I haven't even tried to slide my phone into the center of the adapter for fear of not being able to remove it very easily or harming my phone. I basically just slide it in about an inch onto the phone (even that is difficult.) I understand wanting it to be secure, but this is overkill. Other than that it is currently the best option if you use an olloclip.

                            This is by far the simplest & most effective iPhone tripod mount on the market. There are only a few on the market & they are poorly made or overly complicated. This is spot-on. The only draw back is it's price but in this case you're clearly paying for a clever & well made design. The phone slides in & is held snug without slipping & it doesn't scratch or mark-up the phone.

                              I haven't used this yet, but if you plan to shoot much video with your iPhone 4, this should come in extremely handy. Enables your iPhone 4 to be attached to a GorillaPod (and similar devices).

                                The iPhone 4 is a great little video production tool and this tripod adaptor makes it even better. Finally I can place the phone in a stable mount and shot video that is properly framed. This adaptor holds the phone very securely. My only complaint is the price which seems very high for this little piece of plastic. The threads for the tripod mount are in a metal insert so there's no fear of them stripping like they might if they were plastic. All in all I'm delighted and glad to have located this handy little tripod adaptor.

                                    Easy way to film with your iPhone4. Mount it om a tripod or even a monopod and broadcast directly your event.

                                      Great, simple adapter to hold iPhone 4 to a tripod (or a home-made steadicam like I did). What I didnt like was that it was too wide and covered the screen so I ground down the sides so that it's only a quarter inch wide and it still holds the phone well and in fact it's now easier to get the phone in and out of adapter. Holds very tightly to the iPhone 4's dimensions and for this reason cannot be used with any case on the phone. I think the iPhone 4 has excellent video and still camera quality but holding it steady is difficult so this adapter was just what I needed.

                                        I use the iphone 4 camera a lot: both still and video, usually with poor results due to shaking. with the Tripod adapter, those issues are now gone and best of all, I can attach a real tripod to it so the pictures come up as if it was a costly DSLR camera!

                                        I gave only 4 stars because I have a clear skin on the phone to protect it from scratches and the tripod adapter fits more than snuggly: to the point where it almost ripped the thin film protector.
