PICTAR iPhone Camera Grip

7
For those of us who are familiar with DSLRs and premium compact cameras, its so intuitive to half-press the shutter button, let the camera focus, and then fully press to take the shot. The PICTAR lets you do exactly that with its precision shutter button, plus makes you feel as if you are using a real camera not just a smartphone. Another advantage is that if its freezing, you don’t have to pull off your gloves to take photos.

A zoom ring takes away the need to pinch in and out of the screen. You just turn the ring and the iPhone zooms. We feel this grip is what Apple should have made right from the start.


Naturally, a product like this wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t have a selfie button, or in other words something to let you switch quickly between the front and rear cameras.

For the photography purists, there is an exposure compensation wheel and an intelligent wheel that lets you quickly change scene settings such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO levels.

An ergonomic design and straps make it even easier to pretend that your iPhone is a real camera!

You would think the grip uses bluetooth to send commands to the iPhone, right? Wrong. It uses high frequency sound waves to send signals to the iPhone! How cool is that!
