Do you really need a tripod?
You don’t actually need a tripod. You can set your camera on the ground, or on a bag of rice, or a pile of books. The important thing is that you are not in contact with it at the time the shutter fires. So not only do you need to stabilise it, but you also need to use either a cable release, or the self timer.

Why do photographers use tripods?
A tripod will reduce camera movement and improves picture quality, helping you take the perfect sunrise or sunset. Tripods don’t just hold cameras, they can hold camcorders and also serve as a light stand that holds flash units, slaves, and reflectors.
Is a phone tripod worth it?
Tripods allow you to take long-exposure photographs. Without a mobile tripod, there is no way to take a long exposure on a phone. In many low-light situations, exposing the photo for longer will brighten the picture enough to make it easily visible without ruining the shot with too much light.
