Hang around with the 1-section MT-11 Multifunctional Octopus Tripod from Ulanzi. The rubber legs with an aluminum core can bend easily, so you can wrap them around poles, branches, and railings as well as other surfaces that can lend themselves to get a unique vantage point to shoot from.
The not-so-ordinary ball head has a normal mounting platform with a 1/4″-20 thread, but the platform converts into a universal phone clip that expands from 2.6″ to 3.7″, so it can accommodate different smartphone sizes. A built-in cold shoe at the top of the phone clip is used to supplement a microphone or an LED light for your phone.
Of course, the single-action ball head with a load capacity of 4.4 lb has the usual features of 360° rotation and 90° tilt, and when no longer in use, the 14.1 oz mini tripod folds to a compact 12.2″.
