    One of those products that is just extremely well thought out and versatile. Super well built and stable in use. Best feature? It folds completely flat into something the size of a small pocket knife so it's very easy to keep this in your pocket all the time. Also the tripod legs easily unscrew and reveal a standard 1/4"-20 socket so you can use your phone on a regular tripod. Threaded directly into the bottom of a camera, the legs by themselves could easily support a P&S, mirrorless, or perhaps even a small, entry level size DSLR for tabletop use. The legs are centered around a built in ballhead with a surprising amount of stiffness so pointing a phone or small camera is a breeze. Need I say more? Just buy one already!!! The only drawback is I doubt it would open far enough to grip a large phone. But it easily accommodates an iPhone in a case.

    Pros:
    Nice grip on iphone. Good angle maneuverability. Works well with making still iphone videos by mounting it on hard flat surfaces.

    Cons:
    Legs might be too small for Vine creations. The legs give out if your touching the screen too much.

    Overall: For the price it's worth it.

          I use the GripTight Micro Stand for time lapse and family photos. It does what it says and keeps my iphone 5 positioned exactly like I want it. Good buy! And you can use the top portion separately to mount on a tripod! Bonus!Its is a good buy, and good bye!

                I really like the fact that this stand allows you to leave your protective case on your smartphone during use. Other products require the smartphone to be removed from the protective case which is a pain.
                Also, this product works with several different brands & models of smartphone.

                    I use it for both photography and for viewing videos. In either scenario the tilt range is quite limited; less than 20 degrees. Build quality is alright, but a bit lower than I expected after seeing their video. The jaws are just tall enough to hold a Galaxy S4 in landscape orientation, so don't bother if your phone is any wider.

                    Moving angle not enough.
                    It's getting loose easily (mount and tripod)

                          Convenient stand for multiple devices.
                          A great "adapter" to mount phone to "full-size" tripod. Doesn't obstruct view or interfere with controls.
                          Even my non-techie wife said she thinks it cool.
                          No doubt, this thing is going on my next trip.

                          Slight concern that the ball joint will lose it's effectiveness after many uses but time will tell.

                              I use this for both my iPhone and my compact SuperZoom. It works well for both, but when I rotate the legs out it tends to unscrew from the camera. I can live with it.

                                This is unbelievable small but UNBELIEVABLE CUTE!!!!!
                                Love it.
                                It fits my IPod touch 5(with an Otterbox Defender case)perfectly.
                                It's sturdy (mostly metal parts)
                                It's in my pocket ALL THE TIME.
                                GREAT TRIPOD.....

                                  Great for watching your downloads while working on any flat surface. Great for recording videos of yourself and/or others and for facetiming on my Ipod. Very secure grip and the tripod can be used separately if hiking. Much better deal to buy this combo than either separately.

                                    It is great to have a small tool which allows you to take great photo or videos with my iPhone. It is also great for FaceTime. I also take the unit apart and use the bracket on a small tripod to tilt over the 36 degree limit.

                                        This is a perfect design for the function. It keeps a tight grip and pivots. It collapses to a small size for transport. I wish I was more coordinated when trying to start threading in the screw but that's a problem I experience with any tripod device. It also is good for standing the phone for FaceTime chats.

                                            I've been using GripTight Micro Stand to watch my movies on my cellphone. It does a very good job in holding my cellpPhone (even with a case in place)that I can take photos of me without having to hold the phone at arm length. Very well-built and compact. The only thing that I wish Joby had done was that they have degined the keychain hole in a better way without have the stand being tilted at a odd angle. Either in a different spot or a larger tab to put the hole a little further out from where it is now.

                                              I make app review videos and always had issues trying to hold everything still... But this little gizmo has been the perfect purchase for me and my favorite one of the year. It has made all the difference for me and B&H was a big part of my decision to buy because of their great description but also my past experience with them too! Plus I got it super fast too!

                                                It's cute. It's small. It folds flat. Works well on a desk.
