    Can any body recommend a decent cheap tripod they use with a smart phone, when out wildcamping.

    There's loads on ebay, but i want a decent one that doesn't fall to bits or is not stable when set up filming with the phone on it.

    Any recommendations folks :)

    The Gorrillapod is brilliant. Stable but also bendy, so you can wrap it around branches and things for those arty angles ;-) They come in different sizes.

    +1 for the gorilla pod. Very versatile and can just be strapped to the outside of your pack when not needed.

    IME Gorillapods are ok when they're new but after a while they loosen up and the segments start to pop out.

    Your mileage may vary.
