    I just ordered one as it seems to support the iPhone 6 and 6+ even if using a thin case. I use the Apple Silicone case on my 6+ and this is the first tripod adapter that I've found that seems like I won't have to remove the case to attach to a tripod. I plan to use it for longer exposures, SlowShutter, video and time-lapse.

    Anyone with experience using this product care to share their insights?

    Sounds good, mine is due later this week as well.

    I was testing out Slo-Mo and Time-lapse today by holding my 6+ against my tripod's mounting plate. Some very cool imaging capabilities in those modes.
    I'm looking forward to using the ShoulderPod as soon I get it.

    It looks like I should get mine first then.
    I ordered direct from them and my order info
    said I'd be getting it on Thursday.
    But then again, I haven't gotten any confirmation
    or shipping emails yet. My card was charged.

    i've got one. here's a couple photos of it in a spigen slim armor case on a 6+.

    i'm a big fan of it. i rarely carry my tripod around casually, so i've just been using it as a stand alone table tripod and it's been great.

    when i do have my tripod, the plate attaches easily and it's super secure.

    also, there is a ton of room for cases regardless of size. here's a photo of it attached to a 6+...box. so needless to say, it'll fit almost anything.

    Thanks for the pics,

    It looks like exactly what I'm looking for. If it'll hold the 6+ box maybe it'll hold the 6+ in the currently vaporware lifeproof case ;)

    Sorry to take so long for an update.

    I got mine on Monday the week after I started this thread. It shipped out from the Amazon warehouse in Louisville, KY as far as I can tell. It seems that the way to get one is to order directly from Shoulderpod.

    I haven't had much time to use it much but it seems to be a good product for what it is. The iPhone 6+ (with the :apple: silicone case) cranks the clamping mechanism out to almost it's maximum extension but it seems secure enough.

    I'm currently dealing with a thrice-broken/repaired MBP so I can't share some time-lapse or Slo-Mo video yet. It's currently back at :apple: for some more repair work. But - the Shoulderpod definitely works at securely attaching an iPhone 6+ to a tripod and as a table stand for Face Time duties.

    Time-lapse is a lot of fun and gives me a lot of creative ideas.

    This is in my wish list. Just wanted it to be available last week before my Punta Cana trip. #
