Attaching your iPhone or Tablet to a Tripod or Monopod

We have received a few recent requests for attaching an tablet or smartphone to a tripod.  In the case of an iPad user, they wanted to watch movies on their device and wished to use their camera tripod as the mounting base.  Clever idea but he had no way of attaching the tablet to the tripod.  In the case of an iPhone customer, she wanted to take better pictures with her iPhone and wanted to attach it to her iPhone.  She was looking to stabilize the resulting image.  We also had a customer that wanted to use a tripod as a stand for their music scrolled out on a Motorola Xoom.

For those that wish to use an existing tripod or monopod, we present a selection of options.  These mounts all have a common 1/4″ – 20 female base to screw onto your tripod or monopod.  Some have custom cradles.
