The iPhone Shutter Grip

I rarely schlepp my SLR camera around with me these days. Chasing my 2 year old means carrying as little things as possible, so the iPhone ends up being my main photo camera. (I know, sad statement right there) That’s why I like the idea of the iPhone Shutter Grip. Has anyone tried it?

  1. Nice idea, but “The iPhone Shutter Grip only works with the “Belkin LiveAction” Camera App” it’s from Belkin, look for it on Amazon.
    I use other Apps, like camera Awesome, it doesn’t work for me.

  2. I recently learned that you can use the + volume button as a shutter for the iphone’s camera. I’ve tried it and it works (but is a bit awkward with my phone case.)

    Though, I’d like to try this shutter grip.

  3. Wow, Kathy, I didn’t know that, and now my life is changed! I’ve always hated the awkwardness of trying to press the on-screen button.

  4. Looks promising and handy – but, as said above, only works with a (free) app that’s no good. So I won’t go for it.
    Funny: to schlepp :) did sound (only) german (schleppen) to me … until now.

  5. Lynn, I’m glad to share the info!

  6. I bought one of these, and it returned it within a few hours.

    A surprisingly awful product, simply because belkin forces you to use their software that downgrades the picture quality. It had like 50 one star reviews from the app store last time I checked.

  7. I just discovered the volume button today! Funny coincidence. I also was looking for some sort of grip, and saw this too late:

    An aside, and a bit to brag, I really wished I had something like this a couple days ago taking photos in Venice:
    I was terrified my iphone was going to end up in the canal. This is the downside to using your very expensive device for everything, including a camera. :-)
