This guide is to help you learn how to create digital media projects

Cell Phone Recording Kit

Smartphone tripod

The cell phone recording kit is a simple way to improve the projects you create with your smartphone. The tripod mount will hold phones up to 3.4" wide (including many plus-sized phones like the iPhone 8 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8+). If the exceptionally flexible Vivitar SP6 spider tripod isn't up to your project, the mount will fit onto any standard tripod.

What you need to get started

The simple kit is fairly straightforward, but remember:

  • The mount will work with most tripods, including all of our larger options.
  • This kit will work with all of our cameras and digital recorders.

How do I use this thing?!

Simply thread the camera mount to the tripod to get started. You can adjust the spider legs in many positions, even wrapping it around like a hook to get those really awkward shots.

GoPro Strap Mount

Polar Pro GoPro Strap Mount

The Polar Pro GoPro strap mount lets you attach any camera with a GoPro adapter (including our Hero6 and 360fly cameras) to your bag, belt, or anything with a strap. This is a very secure way to attach a camera to your body during almost any activity. Be sure that the camera mount is fully threaded on and that the mount's quick release is in the lock position.

What you need to get started

This one is simple! All you need is a camera or smartphone to attach to it. Attach the mount to any strap by unscrewing the two plates, insert the strap between them and then screw the plates back together.
