I was expecting to use the GLIF only on a tripod. I figured it would live on the tripod and be used occasionally. I don't often use a tripod. But I have had a few days where I really wanted a steady shot from my iPhone 5s and I didn't have a good solution until now.
GLIF is lightweight and versatile. More that just a tripod mount.
I prefer to have my EarPods connected and press the volume + to take the photo. The only difficulty I experienced while using the GLIF on a tripod per the last two days is that the screen on my iPhone 5s is hard to view. When the phone is in my hand I can easily adjust the position and angle for better viewing. This is not a con for the GLIF but a shortcoming of the iPhone.
The tropical milkweed photo is the first iPhone 5s tripod picture I have taken. I was pretty happy with the results. The photo of the tropical milkweed is a link to my favorite website: GrowMilkweedPlants.com where you can buy seeds to grow this beautiful plant yourself.
Overall I am very happy with the GLIF and I think it's a solid accessory that securely holds my phone for steady shots.
