Having spotted this online some months ago, I thought it
would be a useful addition to my camera bag. I'm using
my iPhone more and more for photography/video and
being a clumsy person at the best of times this little gadget
appeared to have what I was looking for.
The S1 comes nicely packaged.....
Comes in 3 parts, the grip (adjustable) a metal grip which
gives some weight/balance and a wrist strap.
Assembled and ready. Although the main (adjustable) body
is a plastic material it has a nice robust feel to it. A knurled
knob allows adjustment to most sizes of camera.
Removal of the bottom (weighted) section and the strap
reveals a ¼ " socket which will enable you to attach the S1
directly to a tripod.
Note...Strap shown is not the one supplied with kit.
Phone fitted and good to go. Once fitted the phone/camera
has a much better overall feel to it and the extra control is
vastly improved. The supplied strap is also very useful as
it removes any concerns over dropping your phone.
Adjusts for larger handsets (pictured with iPhone 6 plus)
All in all, I would say a very worthwhile investment for
smartphone photographers/videographers. Image quality
is certainly improved simply by the extra control the S1
gives you. At a little over £20 it's certainly one of my best
purchases so far this year and I would have no hesitation
in recommending it to any serious smartphone photog-
