Shoulderpod S1 overview

  • 1Description

The SHOULDERPOD S1 Professional Smartphone Rig is a versatile and portable solution for mobile photographers and filmmakers who use their smartphones for image capturing, and functions as a tripod adapter, grip, and table-top stand. The S1 clamps onto phones between 1.89 and 3.66" wide, making it compatible with most phones, including larger models such as the iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and Sony Xperia Z Ultra. A 1/4"-20 threaded hole at the base lets you mount your smartphone on a tripod, slider, or other support device.

Fix the S1 to the side of the phone and attach an included aluminum grip extension to use it as a grip for improved stability and comfort when shooting handheld. A suede wrist strap is provided for added security. Remove the grip extension and the S1 can serve as a table-top stand for night shots, time lapses, or even for photo/video editing. Mount it in the center of your phone for landscape viewing, or slide toward the base of the phone for angled portrait-mode viewing. With a portable form factor, the S1 can be carried in a jacket pocket, bag, or even hung from your belt using the wrist strap to keep it handy and ready for use.

The S1 fits phones (with or without case) between 1.89" and 3.66" wide, accommodating a wide range of phones including larger models such as the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The clamp opening is adjusted using a thumbscrew on the top of the device, with wide, V-shaped rubbed pads on the clamp grips for a secure, scratch-free fit.

Note: Some thin cases, such as those with integrated batteries and some bulky waterproof models, may not be compatible.

    Shoulderpod S1 reviews

    S1 Professional Smartphone Rig is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holder Easy, Small.Versatile,Secure This is a Great holder for your smartphone. I walk my dog every morning and it has been difficult for me to take pictures while holding the leash and the phone at the same time. This holder is compact, easy to attach and secure. It allows me to take photos one-handed while holding on to the leash. I can use it in both landscape or portrait position and the wrist strap ensures I don't drop it. It feels very solid and well constructed and I use it all the time. GREAT PRODUCT. I also have a monopod/walking stick and I can attach my phone to that with this device or a tripod. Really cool. B&H has the best stuff at the best price and easy to deal with.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ergonomic and solid You can tell when a designer is paying attention to the needs of the end user. This grip is ergonomically designed with solid materials (true it's not all metal, but I think that would make it a little unwieldy for people who already travel with a lot of gear). It's a little shaky until you tighten it down around the phone, and then it feels nice and secure (iPhone 6s Plus). And the handle has a good feel in the hand. This is a huge upgrade from my Joby attachment. Which definitely serves its purpose, but for windy cliffside conditions, this shoulderpod grip is going to let me breathe a little easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear I researched countless iphone attachments that would allow me to securely fasten my iphone 6s to a tripod but was weary to take the plunge because most seemed flimsy and unsecure. Bit the bullet on the S1 after reading a favorable review on another site and I couldn't be happier. The S1 is very well built with enough weight to feel substantial but still light enough to handhold for long periods of time. The tripod attachment is perfect and the included wrist strap is a nice touch. I anticipate the S1 will last me longer than the iphone 6s I'm using it with. I'm using this with my iphone in the Apple leather case and it fits perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ShoulderPod S1 is very well built and extremely handy! I have purchased many iPhone holders to use as tripod mounts and stands, but the ShoulderPod S1 is by far the best and most eloquent one. It is a solid and very well built tool that I got primarily to use in a DIY stabilizer rig I'll use for making videos with my iPhone 6. The ShoulderPod S1 interested me because it is expandable, that is, I can use it with a small smartphone such as the iPhone 5, but it will expand to allow me to use my wife' siphoned 6S+! Just holding the large 6S+ iPhone in it with the included wrist strap and screw-on base adds significant stability when taking pictures or videos. That it has 1/4-20 screw mount means I can attach it to any tripod or camera holding rig. But, there' s'more! By removing the base and inserting your smartphone in the ShoulderPod's rubber grip, you can also use it as a nice little, solid stand for your smartphone. This works best in portrait orientation though you can set the bottom of the ShoulderPod on a flat surface and view the screen in landscape orientation as well. The latter, however, is not as practical as, unless you put it on a stack of books, it is not easy to view. There are work-around S such as using a mini tripod. This is the only con I have about the ShoulderPod. It would be nice if there were some built-in way to use it as a smartphone stand when in landscape orientation. However, I didn't buy it for its stand uses, so I'm perfectly happy with my purchase of the ShoulderPod S1!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution for Apple iPhone 6s!!! I bought this for a recent trip to NYC! As always, B & H has fast shipping so I received the Shoulderpod in a few days. The beauty of this device is it grips the phone securely without scratching the phone or case. My phone was in a case and the shoulderpod held it tightly. I took photos all over Manhattan and the ease of use when recording video or taking photos was excellent. When a phone is mounted in the rig, your thumb is in exactly the right place to take a photo or video. I appreciated having the included strap around my wrist, as I felt a bit more secure knowing I was holding a phone. The grip is just the right size and fit in my hand securely. The S1 comes in a small box which easily tucked into my suitcase, too. For me, it was the perfect addition to an Apple iphone!!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The unit is made out of hard plastic and is not as sturdy. What you need to know about this product. The only metal piece is the extension knob for when you need to hold it in you hand. The unit is made out of hard plastic and is not as sturdy as seen. There is a lot of slack in the design and it makes it feels cheap. The design is clean and simple, granted. However, what can be improved is if this were built from aluminum with higher clearance tolerance for it to feel sturdy and solid. I bought this tripod mount for my iPhone 6s Plus under the impression that it was made out of aluminum or some kind of metal. It is not entirely. So spend wisely and select smartly. The good things are that the 1/4 thread is made out of metal and the unit can fit an iPhone 6s Plus with any case. Cheers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you hate shooting with the iPhone; buy it! I shot medium format film and I really enjoy the process of taking an composing the shot. The bare iPhone is completely the opposite so I bought this rig and I love it. The perfect size and the right shape in my opinion. The included wrist strap is comfortable but I replaced it with an old full leather strap from POPA, a Kickstarter project.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Bang for the Buck I have spent in a long time. The ShoulderPod S1 is everything it says it is and then some. I use it to take photo's and video's with the iphone 6 plus. Very stable and easy to use. I have yet to use it on my tripod. I read a review where the individual was afraid it would loosen up and drop his phone. I cannot see that happening with this product. Well worth the money.
