Modern technology gives us many things.

Pivo Silver Pod keeps you in the frame to enhance your smartphone photography


We are creating so much content with our smartphones on the move and the Pivo Pod Silver can now let you do that hands free while its motion tracking function keeps you in the centre of the frame.

The device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and can securely hold your smartphone in portrait or landscape mode.

The Pivo Pod Silver has a thread on the base which means it could be mounted on top of a tripod.

The device provides an excellent way to capture your content hands-free while also being kept in the middle of the frame whether your smartphone is in portrait or landscape mode.

It’s useful for anyone creating content for YouTube, Instagram and TikTok.

Pivo Pod Silver has also got your back if you’re creating live content for streaming.

And because of its accurate movement in centring you in the frame, the device opens the possibilities for instructional videos and other demonstrations for people who need to move around.

You might be a dancer or a personal trainer or a chef who wants to create videos.

or maybe you want to look at your golf swing or how you hit the tennis ball.

You can do all of that with the Pivo Pod Silver

To achieve this, users would normally have to have another person holding their smartphone, but the Pivo Pod Silver allows you to create that content without any outside assistance.

Auto tracking works really well and can track any object and movement via your face, body and action.

It can even track horses and being able track dogs is also in beta.

There’s AI onboard which makes it possible for the Pivo Pod Silver to provide features like Auto Zoom, Target Exposure and Smart Capture.

And because the device is so small, you’re able to take it with you and use it anywhere.

Pivo Pod Silver connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth through the Pivo companion app.

It also comes with a small remote control so you can manually adjust the angle and activate the shutter for still images and click record for your videos.

And the Pivo Pod Silver can also be used for video chatting on Zoom, Teams Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat and more.

Depending on how you want to use the Pivo, there are a few companion apps they can help you create the video you want.

The generic Pivo app is free to download and gives you basic control for your photos and videos including face and body tracking.

Pivo Play (also free) also unlocks some incredible and fun modes for you to get really creative with your videos.

There’s Clone Trail which joins versions of yourself throughout your video into one; 50/50 which lets you split screen and record in both halves; Many Me which can replicate you in the frame and Magic Edge which lets you create a split in the middle of the video to line up with a tree or a pole so you can film both and make them look like they are the same video.

You can also create stunning panorama shots and time-lapse videos.

Also available is Pivo Present which can help add a little bit more to your presentations while following your every move.

And if streaming is more your cup of tea, there is Pivo Live which can connect to streaming channels on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo and more.

Pivo Present and Pivo Live are free downloads with the Pivo Pod Silver.

But it goes even further than that.

There are other Pivo apps that are free to download but require an in-app purchase to unlock their features

The Pivo Studio app turns the Pivo Pod Silver into a very handy photography tool to help you capture 360-degree product images or single shots from your preferred angle.

Customers can purchase (at extra cost) a turntable that screws into the top of the unit to get those dynamic panning videos and photos at every angle.

There’s also Pivo Tour which allows users to create high quality virtual tours.

This sounds like a great fit for real estate agents who want to give prospective buyers an idea about the layout of the property.

The Pivo Pod Silver is available now from JB Hi-Fi. It’s priced at $199.95.
