Switchpod Handheld Tripod

Anyone that’s ever tried to film themselves knows that it’s harder than it looks. Trying to walk while filming, the curious looks from bystanders, and the overall difficulty in trying to carry a bulky tripod in one hand while trying to keep the camera steady and aligned. Enter the SwitchPod- a lightweight, versatile tripod that instantly flips back and forth between handheld and tripod mode making filming easier than ever. SwitchPod works with any camera.

Handheld to Tripod in Seconds

Switch between handheld and tripod modes (and back again) in seconds. Yes, it really is that fast and you'll get the hang of doing it in a couple minutes.

Works with Any Camera

SwitchPod works with any camera. No more fussing with tripod mounting plates, our embedded 1/4-20-inch standard tripod screw and tightening knob will help you attach any camera in seconds.

Attach Your Camera Quickly

Quickly attach or remove your camera in seconds. The tightening knob allows you to switch cameras swiftly while ensuring that any camera is safely attached. 

Powered by Magnets

Magnets help to keep the collapsed legs together while in handheld mode. But they are gentle enough that, with the flick of your wrist, you can easily switch to tripod mode. Move easily from shot to shot and waste no time setting up.

Easy to Hold

SwitchPod created this to be ergonomically easy to hold by any sized hand. Finger grooves allow you to grip the SwitchPod at your comfort level anywhere along the neck. If your camera is heavy, choke up. If it’s light, slide down.

Take it Anywhere

The thin and lightweight design allows you to easily slip it into any camera bag, pocket, or fanny pack (if you’re THAT cool). Anyone, even kids with smaller hands can hold it easily. With the 3 legs collapsed into handheld mode it is barely taller than a penny, but shorter than an SD card. And it’s lighter than you think. At 11 oz (315 grams) everyone we hand it to is surprised by how lightweight, but sturdy it is.

Won't Bend or Break

They stacked 100 pounds on top and it kept standing. Despite its lightweight design, the SwitchPod is incredibly strong and made of an aluminum alloy (not plastic). It will support a heavy camera, lens, microphone, and more without breaking or slowly collapsing.

Stays in Place

Non-slip feet. Discreet, recessed feet allow you to set your camera down quietly on a surface without it sliding away. 

Integrate with Your Gear

Add your own quick release plates or ball heads. Have a bunch of tripods with the same quick release adapters? Modify the SwitchPod by adding your own quick release plate. Need a ball head? You can add that too.


Use the two 1/4-20-inch threads on the legs to add accessories. Add a mic, a monitor, an LED light, or your Hello Kitty keychain. Turn your SwitchPod into a full video rig!
