3. Travel Tripod (comes with Smartphone Mount), also great for use at home
4. Dolica 62-inch Tripod - a professional tripod, works well with the extension arm

5. Tri-Pod Extension Arm - attaches to Tripod and with the use of an iPhone Camera Mount (not included) you can use it to get great overhead shots.

6. iPhone Mount for Tripods - use this to attach your iphone to any camera tripod (note that the Travel Tripod listed above includes a simpler one, this one is heavier duty and allows you to mount your camera in landscape or portrait mode)
