This year I wanted to get into vlogging more. Sometimes I want to share an idea or record a video review. But having a whole video setup was just a bit to much for me. Then I learned about the iKlip Grip from IK Multimedia.
Note: I received product sample for review purpose. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
The iKlip Grip is a multi-functional video stand with Bluetooth shutter control* for smartphones, compact video cameras, audio field recorders and more. iKlip Grip is 4 accessories in one: desktop tripod, grip handler, monopod and tripod adapter, that can securely hold any smartphone with or without a case with screen sizes from 3.5" to 6", and features also a standard mounting system for connecting small mobile video cameras like GoPro®, compact digital cameras and stand-mount audio field recorders.
The idea of using a mini tripod stand to hold my smartphone while I recorded video was great for me. I tend to use my smartphone for everything anyway.
My iKlip Grip kit came with an easy to follow manual and lots of cool accessories that is quick to set up. I like that you can put the stand together AND take it apart to pack away when not using.
In a few minutes, I put together my tripod
Then attached the mounting bracket to my smartphone
And was ready to record a video.
There's a remote that you can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth to take photos and they say record video. But I couldn't figure out how to start and stop the video, so can't really share about that feature.
But over all I think the iKlip Grip is a great kit for taking photos and to a minor degree videos when you need a portable setup.
