The COOPH team have come up with another top DIY-hack for smartphone photographers who don't want to spend too much cash on a tripod. 

In this video, COOPH shows you how to make a pocket-sized tripod for your smartphone. Using some basic household tools and a few lengths of wire, you can make a flexible and versatile phone holder that will even cling to vertical surfaces!

The DIY tripod looks particularly useful when you want to capture a selfie that has more of the scene behind you in the shot (see the shot at the end of this article). 

Here's the tool checklist: 

  • Binder Clip
  • Smartphone
  • Threaded Rod
  • Allen Key
  • Nuts
  • Washers
  • Coil of wire
  • Duct tape
  • Pliers 

For the full 'how to', click 'play' on the video which isn't very long so won't take up too much of your time.
