I have a tripod for my camera.
I have a "tripod" for my GoPro that allows it to sit on my cameras hot shoe.
I have a "tripod" for my Nexus 5x that allows it to sit on my cameras hot shoe.

The "tripod"/"Attachments" that allow your goPro or smartPhone to sit on your DSLR's hotshoe are useful if you want to be simultaneously taking photos while videoing, or having two focal lengths for video.
