Why Do You Need a Tripod?

Why Do You Need a Tripod?

A tripod offers a variety of shots for you to take on your iPhone that are nearly impossible to achieve handheld.

A tripod can stabilize your iPhone for videos, time lapses, macro photography, and portrait photography. Having a tripod as a stabilizer for your iPhone versus handheld allows the shot to end up being sharper. Especially when taking macro shots, using the Tripod as a stabilizer allows you to focus on the subject and achieve sharp & crisp results.

The Tripod not only enhances your footage, but it is also compatible with any of SANDMARC’s
iPhone lenses, iPhone filters, & iPhone leather cases.

SANDMARC features two Tripods: Compact Edition & Pro Edition.


As you open your box, you will find the tripod and the iPhone mount. Grab your tripod and pull down the legs. To expand the legs, twist the bottom grip (to the left) and pull it down. Twist the bottom grip in the opposite direction (to the right) to lock the leg into place. You will hear a clicking sound as you unlock and lock the position.

Set Up

Once you've found your ideal height, here's how to set up your iPhone mount: On the top part of your Tripod there are two black knobs, one is lower than the other. The lowest knob controls the turn direction of the head of the Tripod, allowing you to lock in the desired direction. The other knob controls the angle of the iPhone mount on the ball head & allows you to lock in that ideal angle.

How to make a TikTok?

TikTok users often struggle with finding a way to stabilize their iPhone & have to lean on a friend to record them or place their phone's slanted against the wall. But there’s an easier way to set up your shot and make consistent content! Having a tripod will give you the control to frame your shot.
Here's how you can make your TikTok's more effective:

It's all about having the right gear to set up your space. The last thing you want is poor lighting or a messy environment to film in. Don't worry if you don't have the most advanced tools or the latest iPhone, these gear products are catered to setting you up with the best results!

The Tripod Pro Edition is highly recommended to film yourself for your next TikTok.

As it is easily adjustable & compatible with the following gear that are great components to help improve your results.

Telephoto Lens

The Telephoto Lens is great for filming everyday life.

Film your way to better zoom quality. Make your TikToks look like they were filmed by a Pro! The Telephoto Lens is great for capturing portraits as well. 

It is also compatible with the Drama Filter.
Drama Polarizer Filter

The Drama Filter will help take your TikTok to the next level. 

Whether you're at home, outside, or filming at the beach, this filter can help control any reflections or extra added brightness you don't want. 

Film your way through better landscape & portraits with the Drama Filter.
Prolight Mini Bi-Color Edition

The Prolight Mini Bi-Color Edition will help brighten you TikTok video.

Every TikToker needs to have the right key light. The Mini Bi-Color Edition is the size of a credit card, yet holds a brightness power of 800 lux. 

It also provides you with warm to cool tones if you need to use it as a fill light instead or for night time!
Wide Lens

The Wide Lens will help widen your iPhone camera's lens to show the whole scene.

Are you filming a TikTok with a friend? One of the biggest frustrations when filming with one or more friends is that the iPhone's camera isn't wide enough to fit all of you.

If you're tired of being cropped out then this is the lens for you! Not only is it ultrawide, but it sharpens your footage and works well in low light enviornments.
