Thank you for your reply Carlos.
Can I get from your reply that the tripod I was planning to buy is right for the job?
As I saw in one of the pictures, it has a smartphone holder as well. So can use it with my smartphone to.

Again, thank you for your reply,

Using a tripod indoor is not as demanding as outdoors, as you do not have to deal with wind or rough base -plus a mobile is much lighter than a camera.

Therefore, in my opinion this one should be fine for modelling. If you are willing to spend more, a ball-mount is easier to adjust, but not essential.

Hello fellow members,

I'm planning on buying a tripod to take pictures and record some video footage with my smartphone. Because the current stand I have for my smartphone doesn't stick to well to the work surface I got for my airbrushing. My first choice was to buy a tripod on aliexpress. I think this one is the one I was looking for: https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/32999251731.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.1abe72ccPfsPNG&algo_pvid=649b2dae-4380-4d14-8f52-312ccdb64140&algo_expid=649b2dae-4380-4d14-8f52-312ccdb64140-0&btsid=ae7d1e19-02f2-4ac3-a9ec-cba66c0b8c9e&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_3,searchweb201603_55 But are there any other good options? Is it possible to find something more good and save some money maybe?

Thank you in advance,
