I took my UniGrip Pro and a mono-pod with me. I was playing with the various functions on my smartphone camera. Because the smartphone was on the mono-pod I was able to set the camera to Macro and set the timer for 2 sec. just long enough to put the camera up close without scaring them away. Totally stable with the UniGrip Pro... Do you have your UniGrip Pro? If not please make a pledge. If you have already... Thank you and please keep spreading the word.
