- Smartphone Tripod – by Toneof: This 50’ Cell Phone Selfie Stick, Smartphone Tripod All in One. Wireless remote, Lightweight and Extendable. This holds 4-7’ iPhone and Androids. A “stealth” tripod with a remote can be very helpful, especially if you want to carry a tripod that isn’t too heavy, tall, and weighs less than 1lb. If you go to places that don’t want large tripods it’ll bring less attention to you, this may do the trick and easily fit in your bag. I used it on a recent trip; it worked well. You can always use your backpack to weigh it down should it be windy and you can vlog in your house or hotel room. Under $30
