If you have ever found yourself in a situation where you were in need of a solid iPhone tripod, then you will want to check out this do it yourself iPhone tripod hack (one of the easiest iPhone hacks I have come across so far). We now live in the era of Instagram photographers and Vine filmmakers. In my opinion, it’s a great era! Some of the photos that these Instagram photographers are taking are pretty amazing. One of my favorite things that these social media photography and video accounts do is time lapse videos, but these time lapses do not work to well if you’re trying to hold the camera still with your hands. For that, you’ll need an iPhone stand, but they can get pretty expensive! That’s why I almost always prefer the do it yourself tripods. They tend to be of pretty good quality too, if you find the right ones. Also, you won’t have to go out and spend a bunch of money on a tripod that might not even work the way that you originally had hoped it would. I have bought several iPhone tripods and iPhone stands in my lifetime, and none of them has ever lived up to neither the promises displayed on the box nor the expectations I had for them. As for the do it yourself versions of iPhone camera stands, I have tried a lot of those too. The phone tripod I create in this life hack video is one of the most sturdy and cheapest tripods you can make. All you need is a drinking glass (or really any sort of cylindrical object, and three decently strong rubber bands. It is much more convenient than using any kind of tape to hold up the iPhone because, once you are done filming, you don’t have to throw anything away or clear residue off of your phone. It’s simple, and great for recording iPhone 6 video. Try it out!
