Getting Ready for Vlogging with iKlip Grip

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.

  1. Oh this is a great idea. I like to use my cellphone a lot, but don't have a stand for it. I love that it is adjustable. My S5 with Otter Cover is pretty heavy, do you think it can handle it?

    1. Youd have to take your phone oit the case and fit it into the mount.

  5. This definitely looks like a must have for anyone who works with video. I have been looking for an excuse to become more comfortable in front of the camera.

  7. I love this company! I met them at an event and got some "i" stuff for my son and his guitar. This looks like a great item as well!

  8. It looks like a great tool. I don't have room for a huge tripod so this one is really appealing.

  12. I think it would be so much easier to vlog with this product. My arms get tired when I hold the camera while I video tape my posts.
