ShiftCam ProGrip seeks to turn your phone into a DSLR (professional camera)
Solution simulates ergonomics of a DSLR camera and allows to add higher quality flashes
Accessory maker ShiftCam launched the crowdfunding project for the ambitious ProGrip , an add-on that seeks to turn your phone into a professional camera – or at least bring it closer to that. With the accessory, your smartphone has an ergonomics very similar to that of a DSLR or mirrorless.
According to company executives, the idea is to create a product that combines the accessibility and convenience of mobile phones with the familiarity and control of a traditional camera. The ProGrip comes with a shutter button that operates via Bluetooth and a pivot construction that allows for quick rotation between portrait and landscape mode.
With this, it is possible to take pictures in different orientations without changing the way your hand holds the accessory. There is also a dedicated space for mounting external flashes, lights or microphones, as well as a support for 1/4 inch tripods .
The ShiftCam ProGrip also comes with a built-in battery that can be used to recharge the smartphone wirelessly using the Qi standard. With a capacity of 5,200mAh, this will be enough to double the autonomy of almost any smartphone.
The accessory promises to be very versatile, being compatible with almost any smartphone. The company specifically cites the top-of-the-line models from Apple, Samsung, Google, LG, Huawei and Xiaomi – which are certainly more suitable because of the quality of their cameras.
The company’s creators were bold enough to say that they relied on inside information from their case maker to ensure that the accessory is compatible with the yet-to-be-released iPhone 12 .
