      This works great on my iPhone 4s and it fits it securely while it is in an Otterbox Defender Case. It attaches to any tripod 1/4-20 mount. I often use it with a mini folding backpacking tripod making it easy to put in a pocket and take with on my motorcycle. Since there are free apps for timed shutter release, I can now get easy self-pics without trying to balance the iPhone on a rock. Other free apps let you take time lapse movies which of course need a tripod mount if you want that sun up to sunset in 20 seconds kind of thing. This is not a secure enough grip to use it for motorsports, or mountain biking, but for fixed location shooting it works great and is fast to deploy. Folded, it isn't much bigger than a pack of gum and it is light. You can also use it to hold the phone to watch a movie. This item is also available with a compact tripod, but I already had a backpackers tripod available.

      Been using for about 6 months till last week. Shooting with IPhone 5 testing some apps for a class on mobile photography when it cracked. Luckily had headphones (used for remote) attached and caught IPhone by them as it hit table on the way to a tile floor.

      Joby has not been very easy to deal with to get replacement. If I even want one now.

      To bad since it did work well. Better than other options at the time. Time to look around again.

        This has been perfect! I needed something I can mount my phone onto a tripod and this really did the trick. What I really like is that you can put several types of phones. You don't need a special case so even if you get a different phone in a year or two, you can still use this mount.

          Mounted this to my Redrock Micro cage to capture a second 'user generated' looking camera angle for a recent project. It mounted very easy and was exactly what I needed to do the job.

            Comments about Joby GripTight Mount (Black):

            I use this to mount my Samsung Galaxy S3 to a tripod. It works as advertised. Just a word of warning, I can't recall the exact model of phone I tried using, but this item can't spread far enough apart to mount anything much wider than an S3 or maybe S4. We tried mounting what I think was a Galaxy Note with a case on it, and it wouldn't go around it. Though we didn't take the case off of it, it looked like it may of worked if we took the case off of the Note. I'm not 100% positive that it will. But, anything like an S3, with a case on it, seems to work.

              This mount is so compact and easy to use. You can fold it up flat to fit on a keychain or in a pocket. Fits on any tripod. I actually took this one back to get the one that has a built in mini tripod, which was only $ more and it also folds flat. It's adjustable with a swivel head (insane) and it can mount horizontal or vertical. Will adjust to any phone size. Great to have even if you just want to watch videos, movies, or for FaceTime. Fabulous!

              This product is great for smartphone and iPod touch photography and video, especially when coupled with the joby gorrilapod tripod. At one point, I screwed it on too tight, and broke it, so I bought a replacement, but a great mount, if you are careful.

              I wanted to make videos using my iPhone (since it's the only option w/in my budget) but I didn't have a way to attach it to the tripod I have.

              The GripTight Mount is easy to use, quick to put on, and holds my iPhone comfortably so that I shoot video w/ my phone.

              One thing that's a little annoying: since the back bar of the mount is in the middle of phone sometimes it wiggles when I tap the screen. So I have to make sure it's resting flush against the mount and that I don't tap too hard. A slight annoyance for me but might be a problem for someone else.

                        This thing is awesome. Works with a tripod or on a flat surface to allow you to take advantage of camera apps that prolong your shutter speed and or take multiple exposures, create motion etc. When not in use it collapses to key chain size to take on the go. It is very intuitive, and essentially universal. No reason not to buy it unless you never use a smart phone for photos.

                          I use this mount to attach one of my old cell phones to a couple of tripods. I only use that cell phone as a video camera now and before I had this little gadget I had to rig it using whatever would keep it attached to the larger tripod. I like that it doesn't take much space and I don't think I can think of any cons to this product.

                          Great product. Reasonable price. Grips phone nice and tight. No worries of it falling out.

                                Perfect for optimizing cell phone camera images. Stable enough to rest on stable, flat, table-top. Mounts on tripod for improved video capture.

                                Caveats:

                                When used with Samsung Galaxy phone cover, the cover induces shake in a breeze.

                                When used with LifeProof case on Samsung phone, it's a little tight and the plastic could conceivably break.

                                Joby would do well to add an eighth of an inch to the maximum height to accommodate waterproof cell phone covers. As is, however, this is a fully workable stabilization tool.

                                this is exactly what I was looking for. Grips my iPhone 5s w/ otter box case perfectly. One thing to note.... you want this grip with the Gorilla pod stand for $ more

                                  Product is awesome. Holds my phone great on my tripod for those steady shots. I recommend this product for anyone that wants to use their phone with a tripod.
