Life as a pro photographer ain’t an easy one. For one, you have excessive gears to lug along and a good camera itself is usually a pain because of the bulk and weight. With the advancement in mobile image processor, your smartphone is as capable as some cameras but a whole lot less annoying to carry around. There’s one problem though; it is not well equipped to recreate the desire lighting condition, nor is it apt in picking up sound. Even a good DSLR will need a little assistant from sound boom and additional light source. This is where Beastgrip can help. Beastgrip is, as the name implies, a beast among grips made for smartphone photo and videography.
First off, it makes your device more ergonomics so it can be handle with ease and also afford more stable shoot as compared holding the device by itself. It comes outfitted with multiple tripod mounts – five of them, to be exact – so that you can turn your smartphone into a proper video rig, complete with microphone, LED light, and what not, and also allows the entire setup to be mounted on a tripod, stabilizer, and more. You can even use external lens or filters to further up your photo/videography quality too – thanks the cold shoe mount and a 3-axis, adjustable threaded mount.
Trust us, once rigged up with Beastgrip, you will never look at your smartphone the same way again. It basically elevates your smartphone to the pro level. So, if you have a smartphone with some serious imaging capability, then this is the rig you need to start making video or capture stills like a pro. Beastgrip Universal Lens Adapter & Rig System for smartphones was a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign that attracted over 1,700 backers who together contributed no less than $260K to make it a reality, and today, it continues to be available to the masses through Amazon, under Amazon Launchpad’s Kickstarter Collection, priced at $139.99 a pop.
