Whether you like it or not the cameras we now carry
in our pockets on a daily basis are getting better
and becoming a more recognised way of capturing
photos and video footage. Keeping the camera
steady can be difficult but the new Hague PS2
Phone Steadymount helps overcome this problem
whilst also allowing room for additional accessories
to be attached.
Unlike other manufacturers Hague have avoided
an iPhone specific mount and have incorporated
a universal phone mount which makes the PS2
accessible to a variety of phones and other devices
such as iPods. It also has a standard ¼” threaded
hole which allows it to be quickly tripod mounted.
With it being small and compact it is an ideal
support for smart phone film makers and it is now
