Shoulderpod R1 Pro is an elegant way to shoot pro video with your phone (pictures)

Holding your phone steady while shooting video isn't easy. That's why you need Shoulderpod's sturdy rig.

With its two handles and solid construction you'll have no trouble keeping your phone still while filming. Smooth pans aren't a problem, either.

The adjustable clamp that holds your phone can accommodate iPhone and Android handsets of all sizes. There's also room on the rig for mounting a light or a microphone.

Just make sure you don't cover the camera lens or flash with the clamp. And avoid putting the clamp on any side-mounted controls!

The scaled-down Shoulderpod S1 is just the clamp, a small handle and an arm strap. It still keeps your phone steady, but has a much more portable design.

If you remove the handle, you can attach the clamp to any standard tripod.

The various parts are eye-catching and built of metal or wood. The modular design lets you build the solution you want. There's even a "cold shoe" mount (bottom left corner) for attaching accessories.
