DIY Shoulderpod Coldshoe Mod


In the tutorial below you'll learn a DIY solution to add a coldshoe to your Shoulderpod. The Shoulderpod S1 is the best smartphone grip and tripod mount. The S1 is a well balanced device that combines form and function but it's not perfect. When using the Shoulderpod I often found myself needing better audio or a supplemental light source. Unfortunately there's no solution out of the box to add accessories to the Shoulderpod so I decided to take things into my own hands by adding a coldshoe mount.
