With the rise in popularity (and sense) of using smartphones to take vacation photos, the days of the bulky SLR camera are dwindling, and with this new era of digitally capturing memories comes a new wave of accessories that can make your smartphone feel like a real camera. From filters to attachments to tripods, the smartphone is the new scrapbook.
For timed photos or to keep the camera steady for the perfect shot, most photographers use tripods, and to accommodate the smartphone as a camera, there are now tripods for phone cameras. The Kenu Stance tripod is one such device that serves multiple functions, but at its core, it keeps your phone steady while you capture life’s events.
Through a micro-USB connection, the tripod can attach to the bottom of most Android smartphone,s such as the Samsung Galaxy, the Windows Phone, HTC, Nokia, Sony and other brands. Kenu also makes the tripod for iPhones and with a normal USB connection.
The tripod can hold your phone steady in either portrait or landscape mode and, while in landscape, you can prop up your phone on your tray table to watch movies or TV shows. What’s more, the tripod also has a bottle opener attached to it just in case you’d like to enjoy a beverage while you watch.
The Kenu Stance tripod can be purchased on Amazon.com for $9.95.
