    A Joby Tripod Designed For Smaller Tablets.

    Here's a useful bargain priced device that hopefully will still be at that low price when you read this! First, here's the info on the Joby GripTight Micro Stand.


    I recently bought the Amazon Fire 8 tablet, which I want to use on my boat to watch videos. I have a dozen stands for phones, but nothing for a small tablet. So when I got this info from BH Photo, it sounded like the ideal solution. “The black GripTight Micro Stand for Smaller Tablets from JOBY provides a compact stand for smaller tablets 3.8 to 5.5 wide with or without a case attached. (According to those specs, it won't be big enough to hold the 10" Fire Tablet.) Paired with the zinc-aluminum folding legs of the Micro Hybrid tripod this stand enables you to position your tablet in the desired viewing angle regardless of whether you're watching a movie surfing the web or setting up for a photo shoot. Tilt (degrees) +36/-36. Lightweight at 3.9 oz and with a slim profile you can easily take the GripTight Micro Stand with you.” Perfect, I bought one, not for the MSRP of $29.99, but for $7.95 with free shipping. It includes the micro tripod that I've seen selling by itself for $11 to $15.00. This deal was still $7.95 on Saturday, 2/9/19. (BH Photo is closed on Saturdays, but you should be able to order it online as I did. There's tax in NYC, but they shipped it free to me.)
