Re: Tripod question Please

I use a Ulanzi phone mount, nicely made of light alloy and much better than the cheap spring loaded things,

together with a ulanzi mini tripod like this

You will see that the tripod has a big ball in it head, big ball gives better stability than the  little ones you normally see.  Plenty good enough for phone and I use it for all but the biggest cameras as well.  Relatively light for travel.

Plus the phone mount fits on any standard thread tripod thread so I can use stuff from my photography kit if I need more height.

Surprisingly good quality for the money you pay.

For serious film work you might want a pan and tilt head rather than a ball - if you plan to pan that is.  Pan and tilt lets you lock the head on one plane and move it in another, a ball is either locked or free in all planes at once.
