Using a cell phone to capture POV footage with Solvid’s CamStrap head camera mount
The CamStrap is not limited to cameras and camcorders with a tripod connection. It can also be used with most cell phones and action cams. While not all of these gadgets possess a tripod connection to fit directly on to the CamStrap, there are several tripod adapters that can enable a person to use just about any video recording device to get POV footage.
Cell phone cameras have come a long way in the past years, and are now capable of capturing high quality HD POV footage that can be compared to that of most action cams. While we here at Solvid FIY do not directly sell cell phone tripod adapters, we have tried many and determined which work best with the CamStrap and are the best value.
Recommended Cell Phone Tripod Adapter
Case Star Cell Phone Tripod Mount – $4.99 at Amazon.com
This mount is light, effective, and affordable. It accepts phones up to 2.75 inches in width and weighs slightly more than half an ounce. The hold this thing has on phones is ample for most action sports, but may allow the phone to come out in the event of a hard crash, which is not always a bad thing. The Case Star mount allows the camera to be mounted horizontally only, which is typically the best position for POV footage. This mount is inexpensive yet has received great reviews and has performed well in our tests.
