If you use a phone to record video, instagram stories, Tik Toks, or really anything, this stand is my most favorite. I’ve tried a few different types, but this one is great because it has an arm that can film directly down, as opposed to just angled down. It extends and also retracts, so it doesn’t take up much space. Also the base is solid and heavy, so it’s stable. I don’t like the clamp style camera like this with the bendy arms, as I feel like they never stay in place, and are hard to position. This one is great!
