    Slightly OT: Like taking pictures, use your smartphone?

    Back my friend's kickstarter project. This device is really cool and cheap and allows you to take great group photos with an iPhone or any smartphone. With smartphone cameras getting better and better these days, something like this is nice to have. We've used it backpacking, mountain biking, hiking 14ers, and all sorts of places where we didn't want to carry extra gear or a full-on DSLR. It's very convenient for taking group photos. Started right here in Colorado and made in USA.

    JackPod! - Truly Universal Smartphone | Tripod Mount by Joe Simon — Kickstarter

    Here's a pic we took on one of our rides using a jackpod and an iphone.


    Works with any phone and any case.

    I'm not sure if this violates the ToS of the forums. I apologize for any perceived spam. I'm not really trying to sell anything here, just helping a friend get his campaign off the ground. I figured a lot of you might be interested in something like this and wanted to share. Thanks.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    Interesting idea, but is the phone is completely supported by the jack? Seems like a big moment arm to be supported by the solder holding the jack to the main board (usually only a few points of contact) when the phone is sideways.
