Grip&Shoot has unveiled the Bluetooth Smart Grip for Smartphones. With the Bluetooth connectivity, you can utilize the handles start/stop, zoom in/out controls, while never having to engage the touchscreen. The idea is to allow more steady movements and camera control without the usual fumbling around that accompanies every start/stop. The Grip’s Jedi Trick is that the Bluetooth action can be separated from the handle allowing it to turn into a remote – range is said to be up to 100ft (your mileage may vary).
The Shooter Case is made out of a ballistic grade polycarbonate and features a locking shoe built into its side for convenient and secure attachment to the Bluetooth Smart Grip. The Shooter Case is the quickest and easiest way to connect your phone to the Grip&Shoot system however, Grip&Shoot does offer the JawZ accessory, which can accommodate multiple sized phones and cases with spring loaded “jaws.” The JawZ are over-molded with durable no-slip rubber to grip your phone securely. And when not in use, JawZ folds flat and can be stowed in your pocket.
