‘ Pivot’ is an inexpensive, lightweight grip for your iPhone or practically any other smartphone or digital camera that lets you frame the perfect action pic & video. It’s made up of an articulated hub, providing excellent positioning with up to 225 degrees of rotation.

The Pivot is a handy accessory that is ideal for filming or shooting sporting events, hikes, adventure outings… It’s compact & ergonomic, having a natural hand-feel, especially when you combine it with its passive stabilization design, which minimizes shakiness in video shoots. & if you have a waterproof phone or camera you can even take a dive with it.

The Pivot is made from rugged lightweight plastic, & has a classy & attractive black & red design. It has a Universal Clamp attachment, a 1/4-20 mount & a GoPro adapter, so you can connect it to practically any camera & to smart phones with measurements of up to 5.5 inches.

The integrated cold shoe mount means that other lightweight attachments like a microphone or light can be quickly & easily attached.
