    I have been using my olloclip lens a lot lately taking nature pictures (esp using the macro feature). Its super hard to hold it steady that close to get good shots so I am in the market for a good tripod for my iPhone. I currently have a Glif+ tripod mount (see picture below). The ones they sell at Best Buy are all so small, like 6 inches tall... It will be used a lot outdoors, so I was thinking something like this would be best: http://joby.com/store/gorillapod/hybrid

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    That is a good tripod. I found a cheaper model for $12 on amazon compared to the $30 one you showed. Joby GP1-A1EN Gorillapod Flexible Tripod is the one I seen, not sure what's the difference.

    Define "best" clearly. Don't assume that your notion is universal. What size limitations? How do you intend to use it? What features are most important to you? What budget? What are you photographing? I mean, a 6" tall tripod probably won't help much if you're shooting stuff that requires a taller tripod. "Nature photography" really doesn't help much in that regard.

    The Joby's a good option if you're looking for a relatively inexpensive but versatile and compact tripod. If you want the ultimate in stability, a larger tripod or have needs that the Joby doesn't meet then you may want to look at something else. It all depends on what your priorities are.

    I use the Gorillapod with magnets for feet (surprisingly handy) with a "super mount F"

    I like being able to use it w/out having to remove my case. The tripod's quick release clips are great too.
