Now a days, for holding your smartphone while snapping pictures or video, iPhone tripods have found a new purpose. Although, they’ve always been great they’re now a must-have accessory when using your phone as a webcam. Meanwhile, a good iPhone tripod will let you prop your smartphone up at the ideal height and angle for those hours-long videoconference calls with the nearest and dearest ones.
While using your phone as a webcam
Of course, an iPhone tripod is also a key piece of equipment when shooting photos or video, especially in low-light situations. Many iPhone tripods have flexible legs, which let you attach your phone to a branch, pole, or some other object so you can get the perfect shot.

As the name suggests, the Eocean is a combination of selfie stick and tripod. When you unfold the legs, you get a pretty standard miniature tripod with three wide legs that keep the phone well balanced. When you extend the column of the tripod and fold the legs back, you get the selfie-stick mode.
The phone grip at the top of the column has a ball head that you can use to tilt and rotate the phone, so you can point the phone’s camera in pretty much any direction, then use the clamp to hold it in place. It is possible to use the Eocean as a taller tripod by folding the legs out with the column extended, but be careful; it is top-heavy and rather prone to tipping over. With 45 inches of extension, that’s a long way for your iPhone to fall. Also included is a small Bluetooth remote that attaches to one of the legs. This allows you to take photos or stop and start video recording without touching the phone itself.
