Popular vloggers on YouTube like to use their GoPros for shooting awesome vlogs. You don’t have to necessarily purchase extra equipment either. Your iPhone can be just as good as a GoPro and because you carry it with you everywhere you go, you’ll never end up leaving it behind at home, which can happen with a GoPro. One thing you don’t want to leave at home though is your tripod for your iPhone.
Especially with iPhone tripods, you want to make sure that you purchase one that comes with a smartphone adapter already included so you don’t have to spend extra cash getting one. You’re also guaranteed that the adapter will mount smoothly and effectively to your tripod because the screw is compatible. Since iPhones don’t have a screw adapter on their physical phone, you will need an adapter or it just won’t work.
There are many advantages to using a tripod while you’re vlogging with your iPhone. By setting up your tripod, you can eliminate shakiness and provide a stable base while you’re filming. Sure you can hold your iPhone in your hand, but the shakiness will render your footage completely unusable. Plus, it makes it easier to hold your iPhone comfortably.
Vlogs don’t need to be just sit-downs and talking to your audience, you can also show your audience the scenery, what you’re doing or you can be talking while you’re on-the-go! In all of these situations, a tripod will help tremendously. By placing your iPhone on your tripod, you won’t need to deal with holding your camera, finding the right angles, and getting a stable video.
There are a ton of iPhone tripods and many types as well, you can get a Gorillapod, a compact tabletop tripod, or a full-size tripod that can be used with your camera and your iPhone! They’re easier to hold in your hand and packs away in your camera bag swiftly and easily. As long as your tripod comes with a smartphone adapter, the possibilities are endless!
