Beastgrip Pro Smartphone Camera Rig
With smartphone cameras now coming with higher specs than your mum’s DSLR, it’s no great surprise that some semi-pro photographers just use their iPhones when shooting. If you’re one of those Joes you might be interesting in the Beastgrip Pro – the world’s first universal lens adapter and camera rig system for smartphones.
The Beastgrip is all about getting you a steadier and more professional shot. In order to make things as simply as possible, the modular rig system comes with a removable lens mount assembly and handle which allows Joes to modify the Beastgrip to their own personal shooting preference.
The mounts are all industry-standard which means you can add pretty much anything you like. It’s incredibly easy to use and you’ll still have access to all your phone buttons, as well as your charging ports. The best bit is virtually every smartphone on the planet will fit into the Beastgrip perfectly.
While lenses are the obvious use for the Pro, it can essentially attach anything you’d need. That means tripods, stabilisers, sliders, LED lights and microphones are all on the table too. Obviously there’s not an unlimited amount of mounts, but five standard ¼”-20 threaded mounts should be plenty to get any job done.
We love the idea of the Beastgrip and while it might not be the most aesthetically pleasing thing we’ve seen all year, this isn’t a fashion accessory. The only major smartphones which aren’t compatible at the moment are the LG G Flex and the LG G2, which can’t align with lens mounts due to their shape.
The Beastgrip Pro is available now over at Amazon for £139.99. Obviously you can get plenty of add-ons too which will naturally increase the price significantly. As an example, a Beastgrip with a Fisheye Lens and a Wide-Angle Lens will set you back around £335. Head over to the Beastgrip Website for more specs.
