About Cocoda Brand
Cocoda Brand is specializing in various electronics accessories products. They are selling their products only on Amazon, however, all of their products have hundreds of positive reviews and that was already a great sign that their products are of the highest quality, therefore I decided to test Cocoda tripod and see how it meets all my needs.
Below you will find my in-depth review about COCODA tripod.
1. Why did I choose this tripod?
First of all, the Cocoda tripod has a very competitive price, and yet it has all the features I needed. I currently record videos with my cell phone for my YouTube channel, and it's really great.
The remote control allows me to take screenshots and record video anywhere I want, which is a great advantage because I don't have to make as many cuts when editing.
In addition, I don't have to get up and press the start recording button, I used to do this before and many times the phone's focus and position moved, but it's much easier now thanks to the remote control.
Other features that attracted my interest were the weight and portability, because I shoot a lot of videos outside of my house and therefore I needed something really light and easy to carry around. The Cocoda tripod's dimensions are 1.42 m., but it's barely the size of my forearm and hand when folded, which makes it very easy to carry around.
2. How do I plan to use Cocoda tripod?
I use the Cocoda tripod mostly to record videos for my Youtube channel. I record these videos with my cell phone and then edit them with a very simple program using my phone. I really don’t want to waste too much time on editing, heavy equipment, and professional cameras, so I chose this more minimalist option, and it works amazingly well.
I also use the tripod to shoot video with my Sony action camera (just like the Go Pro) thanks to the universal action camera mount which this tripod has.
And last but not least, I am also a piano enthusiast. And I am using the tripod with my tablet to be able to view sheet music online. I didn't know that it could be used like this before I bought the tripod, but then I saw that it also has the tablet support, so I am also using it this way.
These are the most popular use cases how I use the tripod in my everyday life, but it can also be used for:
- Selfie stick (although if you are going to use it just for this, I do not recommend it – the classic selfie sticks will be more convenient)
3. How to use the tripod and description about the main features
The Cocoda tripod is very simple and intuitive to use. I will explain how to use it.
First of all, you should know that the tripod is telescopic. It has a three-feet base with anti-slip material. On top of the feet, there is a wheel that we have to loosen to extend the tripod.
Then, we just have to expand the tripod through its three adjustable segments according to our needs. Once the adjustments mentioned above have been made, we have two options:
- To use the universal support mainly for photo cameras or action cameras,
- Attache the cell phone holder to the same support (it has two options, one in horizontal mode and another in vertical mode)
*The last section of the tripod is a head that can rotate 360º.
And finally, connect the remote control to our pone via Bluetooth connection, to start recording or taking pictures remotely – this is very convenient.
4. To whom is this product suitable?
This product is perfect for people who need lightweight product which is easy to carry around. If you enjoy creating videos for your own use or for your Youtube cannel (or another platform), if you are a photographer, or just want to take selfies (and not have to run back and forth after hitting the timer), this is your tripod.
- Taking selfies
- Live broadcasting
- Video blogging
- Tablet (I use it to watch movies from bed and to read sheet music when I play the piano.)
It can have many more uses. Just let your imagination fly.
5. Product contents and specification
The Cocoda tripod contains:
- Cocoda telescopic tripod.
- Additional cell phone holder.
- Carrying bag.
- Remote control (working up to 10 meters away).
Material: high-quality aluminum alloy.
Dimensions: 52cm (folded). 1,42m (extended).
Stability: through its three locks and its anti-slip base.
Remote control: remote control Works up to ten meters (includes batteries).
6. Main benefits
With the Cocoda tripod, we can free our hands when shooting our videos and photos. For me, this is the main benefit of the product, in addition to the remote control, which allows us to control it remotely from a distance.
Also, its lightness and portability are important features for those who need to use it in different scenarios.
It has a universal support for different electronic devices. Therefore you won’t have to buy these accessories separately (for example, camera and action camera mount and phone support mount)
I tested the tripod with my heaviest camera, and it still provided stability. You probably wouldn’t want your camera to fall to the ground and this tripod is really firm and secure.
And, finally, it is a very compact tripod, but when we extend it, it is almost a meter and a half long. I love this because I often need several heights when recording, and the tripod has a very wide range of height.
7. Features I like about Cocoda tripod
- Remote control
- Dimensions (both folded and extended)
- Carrying bag
- Universal support (for different equipment)

Author: Miguel | Let's Review
My name is Miguel. I'm from Madrid (Spain), and I've been practicing climbing for more than 15 years. This has been my passion and my way of understanding life since I tried my first climbing route for the first time in La Pedriza. Climbing has led me to explore wonderful places in different parts of the world (Patagonia, Morocco, Chile, Argentina, France, Spain, and Switzerland), where I have enjoyed the best walls ever; but I would definitely leave this in the background to talk about the most special part of climbing which is meeting people, cultures, and traveling with friends and family.
I have always liked teaching and also learning from my students, from a very young age. That is why my entire professional career has been channeled in this direction. I started as a canyoning instructor, ski instructor and climbing instructor. But later, I got a master’s degree in ELE and dedicated myself to teaching Spanish.
