Trying to kick off my vlogging I decided to purchase some gears to complete the setup. I was watching a YouTube tutorial from the Moment team in Seattle recommending this setup. Here is my first impression.
I bought the Rode VideoMicro some while ago. Now I combine it with the Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod and the Manfrotto TwistGrip to complete my setup for the vlog iPhone X.
Original box Manfrotto TWISTGRIP. Nothing more, nothing less.
In the Box
In the box Manfrotto TWISTGRIP. Phone holder with simple instruction.
Bottom 3/4 mount for a tripod or other mount.
Top hot-shoe mount for microphone or other accessories.
By twisting the top and bottom piece you can flatten out the holder to make it flat when stowing it away.
Manfrotto Pixi Mini Tripod
Packaging for the Pixi Mini Tripod. Nothing more and nothing less…
Small But Steady
Robust to hold your DSLR.
Angle Easy Adjustment
Sturdy press button to tilt the angle.
Here is the setup before putting on the iPhone X.
The Perfect Vlog Setup For iPhone X?
User friendly setup
This setup works really great and the ability to attach the microphone on the hot shoe mount on top works perfectly.
The button on the tripod to angle the camera is really useful.
The only thing I miss is some sort of a mechanism with a spring that holds the phone clamp together automatically. Now you need to push the clamp together before you secure it with the screw.
