What are people using for phone tripods?

I’ve used a couple different waterproof phone cases but non that had traditional camera tripod mount.

Interesting, the Panasonic TS7. I recall Ricoh had a waterproof point and shoot but it was not very available and costly.

I have a phone adapter-tripod holder clip. ... nb_sb_noss
There is now a much better selection than when I got mine 2 years ago.
They work great in all my camera tripod stuff
Many phones are much more water resistant than they use to be.
I would still use my older phone while filming water shots,
Just in case of an "oops" moment.

If you really want to get into photography, there are cheap cameras that you can start with. If youre also looking for tips on how to get great shots with your phone, there are a lot of tutorials on youtube.

I got some stunners in Iceland. As I don't use photo sharing sites I can't post them here.

Exactly! Learning a little about framing your subject, lead in lines, rule of 1/3s, changing your angle on your subject (don't look down at it) are simple things that are going to make you images way more interesting. The phone does limit you to a wide angle lens which means you need to get close to things though. There are cases you can attach to your phone which will take different lenses but I don't know how good they are. There's getting to be a lot of power in the phone to do basic colour correction too.

If you're wanting to print large images or take pictures in low light - a miroless or dslr will out preform a phone. But if you can't frame a good shot you'll just be able to print a bigger boring picture. 10 years ago a fairly high end dslr had around a 12 megapixel sensor in phone has a 16 megapixel. It's still physically way smaller though so it can't take in as much light therefore whatever you're taking a picture of needs to be lit more.
