Digital Camera World Verdict

A tripod for carrying around permanently with your smartphone, Joby’s StandPoint is a well-made product that works well on flat surfaces. With just enough range and grip, it adds some useful and fuss-free stability for creative photography and hands-free video. However, it’s also a great accessory for the commute and for travel since it works well as a kickstand on desktops, and on train and airline tray-tables.
