Oben ASPTA-20 Overview

The ASPTA-20 Smartphone Tripod Adapter from Oben lets you securely mount your smartphone onto a wide variety of platforms like a tripod, monopod, and tripod head. And to ensure compatibility, the ASPTA-20 can mount to these platforms via the Arca-type base or either of the standard 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 threaded holes in the mounting plate.

Mounting your smartphone is quick and easy. The clamp-style holder is adjustable and spring-loaded, accommodating smartphones from 2.4 to 3.7" wide - in or out of a case. When inside the holder, your smartphone gets additional protection from the curved edges that work to keep the phone from slipping out. The interior is also foam-lined, safeguarding the finish of your phone while providing extra grip.

Safely fastening a smartphone to your platform of choice is not where the capabilities of this adapter end. Additional features, such as an integrated ball joint, lets you pivot the phone in a variety of positions. A locking knob on the clamp secures it into place so you can get the precise shot you want. You can further enhance your work with the integrated cold shoe, so you can attach optional accessories such as an LED light or microphone to your setup. More than a simple tripod adapter, the ASPTA-20 can integrate into your workflow help you capture a wide range of mobile content.

Very well built

Usually these adapters are plastic garbage that break in no time, this unit is metal and the arca Swiss plate is a perfect addition.

Solid with a few flaws.

I'm impressed how well built this is. The clamps do a nice job securing the smartphone. Good rotations options. What was not so great was that the vertical post connects with the tripod place often becomes loose. I became tripod of retightening the screws so I just added some Gorilla Glue to the the connection. Problem solved. Also, the threads that attach to a stud or a tripod plate strip very easily. But then again I've been know to over tighten things, so part my fault I suppose. I found a work around so all good. Here are a few photos showing how I use it.

strong and stable

Versatile with several mounting options, this tripod adapter is like a Swiss army knife for shooting with a smartphone. It's easy to use and a good value for money. The clamping mech is strong enough to ensure no slippage once your shot is set. Very good product!

With the iPhone camera lenses facing the ball joint, will the ball joint get in the shot when using the widest lens?
Asked by: Edwin
It's a good question, particularly since the confusing photo shows the phone being mounted that way (backwards). Assume the grip works equally well in either mounting direction (?) Maybe the follow-up question is whether the touch-screen camera controls are blocked by the ball joint to some degree, when the touch screen is facing that direction.
