    Those that use your iPhone as a primary photography device for taking all your pictures, either work or play. What Make and Model of tripods do you use or would recommend?

    Mounting options, hardware and options.

    I mostly use a Joby Gorillapod, but sometimes need something taller, so I'll use a portable Slik tripod. But mostly just the Joby!

    The closest thing to a tripod I've used with my iPhone was a selfie stick...(laughing).

    Manfrotto table top tripod with s phone clip is what I use but I just picked up a Benro Selfie and Tripod combo and I've only used it a few times and I would say it's pretty nice. I wouldn't fully extend the selfie stick party and use the tripod at the same time since it's not stable.
    I'll take some photos of it when I get home.

    This is the Tripod/Selfie combo I just picked up. So far, I like it. It's not the most stable when the stick is fully extended and using it as a tripod but anyone that used a tripod before knows using a center column reduces stability.

    I got a small one like this Arkon Mobile grip. They're inexpensive, but work well. A large phone in an Otterbox may not fit well.

    that's similar to the joby I have. Works well for just standing or grabbing around things.

    I have a similar setup but it's overkill to carry around for a phone. I have that as my primary for my DSLR and a MeFoto as a travel one for my DSLR but both are still overkill for a phone.

    I picked up the Benro Tripod/Selfie stick to minimize items in my backpack.

    Have you tried the smaller magnetic ones for the phone? May not be tall enough for most uses though but the bendable arms are versatile in many situations.

    I have and never liked them for the phone series. I bought the new Joby phone version and returned it. I have a iPhone 7+ and it felt unstable.

    Probably true for the Plus series!
