The Lollipod is a sturdy and portable tripod for your smartphone

7
Lollipod hopes to be as portable as the smartphone or compact camera it will hold.

There's a new, extremely lightweight tripod in the ever-growing compact tripod market. The Lollipod was released this week as a portable, multi-purpose tool for smartphone and small camera users. Weighing in at 320 grams (0.7 pounds) including its carrying bag and measuring at one foot when fully closed, the Lollipod can hold smartphones, small cameras like a point and shoot or GoPro, and audio or lighting equipment.

Available for £34.99 in the UK and $55.66 in the US, the Lollipod comes in six different colors and expands to over three and a half feet. The tripod comes with a belt clip, carrying bag and an "innovative stabilization system," or what appears to be a mesh bag attached to the tripod's legs.

"The Lollipod is a sturdy and portable tripod for your smartphone"

Where's the clip of a "smartphone" demonstration?

Lame!

This sounds like connect is advertising the lollipod, because owners of it and people who have tested them are claiming different things than connect.

Looks cheap and overpriced. It can't cost them more than $5 USD to make this in China and then ship it around the world.

"innovative stabilization system"

Where do they get the nerve to call this innovative? A bag to put rocks in for stability? Unbelievable ...

I saw this either last year or early this year in the shops. It's a cheap flimsy thing. Do not recommend.

It's not cheap, but it's just what I need.

If you position the camera horizontally, wouldn't the tripod tip off? Is the tiny tripod capable of countering the center of gravy shift?

How do you connect a smartphone to this? Its not like they come with tripod sockets.
