Cameraphones are great for their convenience and multiple functionalities, but they’re a little bit limited compared to dedicated, standalone cameras. If you, like many people, own an iPhone that you use to take photos there are a few bits and pieces you can go out and buy to make the process easier and better.
Sometimes you need a little bit of extra support for your photographical activities. You could go out and buy a cumbersome, expensive tripod with a dedicated smartphone stand to assist you, or you could buy yourself a GorillaPod. It functions in pretty much the same way, except the flexible legs can be wrapped around pretty much everything. What exactly does this mean then? What it means is that it opens up a whole new realm of shooting possibilities for you. You could wrap it round a tree, on a lamppost, or even use the legs to steady it on rough terrain.
Plus it’s incredibly easy to clip your phone in and out of the stand with minimal fuss.
