SnapGrip Finally Solves Holding Your iPhone for Photos

And it uses MagSafe!

  • ShiftCam’s SnapGrip is a MagSafe attachable camera grip for iPhone.
  • Attaching the handy cam grip is probably the easiest way.
  • But you may still find it easier to carry a dedicated camera.

Add-on camera grips for the iPhone appeared as soon as iPhone cameras made money. But so far, it has been more of a hassle than carrying a separate camera.

The iPhone’s camera is great, but the iPhone itself lacks ergonomics when taking pictures. It’s awkward to catch. Tapping the screen to trigger the shutter forces you to miss the subject, and while you can use the volume button as a shutter button, you’re only half as likely to accidentally press the sleep button. ShiftCam’s SnapGrip solves all these problems and works with MagSafe. But can you really turn your phone into a battery camera?

“No matter how hard I try, I can’t use my smartphone as a camera. I always prefer point and shoot over my smartphone. I doubt the grip can change that.” photographer and photojournalist Hamish Road I notified Lifewire via direct message.

There have been many iPhone camera grips over the years and I’ve reviewed my fair share. Some are part of the housing, others are fixed and offer nothing more than a grip, while others provide a hardware trigger to make it feel like a real camera.

ShiftCam’s SnapGrip messes with Apple’s MagSafe connector. This device is a combination of a battery pack and a camera grip. Snaps to the back of your iPhone and aligns with the MagSafe magnet to make it easier to hold your phone and add a friendly trigger. The battery charges the phone, but that’s not all.

One of MagSafe’s tricks is to allow some sort of low-level daisy chain of accessories. For example, you can add a MagSafe case and stick the MagSafe charging puck on the back. You can attach additional photo accessories to the ShiftCam in the SnapGrip pocket. It comes with LED lights (which can be tilted for hot selfie action) and a tripod mount/selfie stick. There is also a ShiftCam sleeve that can be used under all these other accessories.

ergonomics

Film camera design was born from the combination of ergonomics and necessity. Since the iris is where the iris is, I controlled it with a ring around the lens. The same goes for the focusing collar. This had the side effect that these settings could be easily adjusted without thinking. It’s piggybacked to the ISO (Film Sensitivity) dial because the shutter button has moved from the front to the top of the camera, the exposure compensation dial has basically the same settings, and so on.

Digital cameras habitually mimic these control layouts or mix customizable dials and touchscreen controls. But no matter how they work, digital cameras are purpose-built and always easier to hold and use than an iPhone.

Photographer and fashion stylist Nuria Gregori said in a private interview: “The first thing I think of when I see this product is that it makes the camera phone easier to use.” “People who find it difficult to hold a cell phone because of their age, for example, may find it easier to take pictures,” she said.

One of the biggest downsides of these extra grips is that they make your iPhone as bulky as a camera. The iPhone is a great camera. Partly because you can take it out of your pocket and get it working in seconds.

The SnapGrip is perhaps the fastest attachable accessory grip we’ve ever seen. So the question remains. If you’ll be taking a lot of pictures and you’re willing to take a bigger device, why not just use a dedicated camera? You’ll get better results with a bigger sensor, a nicer lens, extended low light capabilities, and more.

SnapGrip is currently on Kickstarter, but ShiftCam is already making iPhone camera cases, grips, lenses, and other accessories, so Kickstarter looks more like a promotion rather than a financing, especially since there’s no start date or price yet. But if you know you want a grip, this really looks like you’re trying to get it.

And it uses MagSafe!

ShiftCam’s SnapGrip is a MagSafe-attachable camera grip for the iPhone.
It’s probably the easiest-to-attach phone cam grip ever.

SnapGrip

Add-on camera grips for the iPhone appeared as soon as the iPhone’s camera was worth using. But until now, they’ve all been more hassle than just carrying a separate camera. 

The iPhone’s cameras are amazing, but the iPhone itself is ergonomically lacking when it comes to snapping pictures. Gripping it is awkward, tapping the screen to fire the shutter means taking your eye off the subject, and while you can use the volume buttons as shutter buttons, half the time, you’ll probably just press the sleep button by mistake. ShiftCam’s SnapGrip fixes all that, and it does it with MagSafe. But can it really make a phone into a batter camera?

“I can’t, as much as I’ve tried, engage with a smartphone as a camera. My preference is always for a point & shoot over a smartphone. I highly doubt a grip would change that,” photographer and photography journalist Hamish Gill told Lifewire via direct message.

There have been plenty of iPhone camera grips over the years, and I have reviewed my fair share. Some are part of a case, some clamp on and provide nothing more than something to hold, while others provide a hardware shutter-release button, so they feel like a real camera. 

ShiftCam’s SnapGrip takes Apple’s MagSafe connector and goes crazy. The unit is a combination battery pack and camera grip. It snaps onto the back of the iPhone, and aligns itself using the MagSafe magnets, makes the phone easier to hold, and adds a familiar shutter button. The battery pack charges the phone, but it doesn’t stop there. 

One of MagSafe’s tricks is to allow a kind of low-level daisy-chaining of accessories. You can add a MagSafe case, for example, and still stick a MagSafe charging puck to the back. In the SnapGrip’s case, you can stick extra photo accessories to the ShiftCam. At launch, there’s an LED light (tiltable for hot selfie action) and a tripod mount/selfie stick. Plus, there’s a ShiftCam case, which can be used under all those other accessories. 

Ergonomics

Film camera design grew out of a mixture of ergonomics and necessity. The aperture was controlled by a ring around the lens because that’s where the aperture is. Ditto the focussing collar. This had the side effect of making these settings easy to adjust without thinking about it. The shutter button moved from the front to the top of the camera, the exposure compensation dial piggy-backed on the film-speed (ISO) dial because they essentially adjusted the same thing, and so on.

Digital cameras either mimic these control layouts out of habit or mix in freely-assignable dials and touch-screen controls. But however they work, digital cameras are purpose-built and are always easier to hold and use than an iPhone. 

“The first thing I think of when I see this is that it makes cameraphones more accessible,” photographer and fashion stylist Nuria Gregori told Lifewire in an in-person interview. “People who have trouble holding a phone due to age, for example, can take pictures more easily.”

Bulk

One of the biggest downsides of these add-on grips is that they make your iPhone as bulky as a camera. An iPhone is a great camera partly because you can whip it out of your pocket and be ready to go in a second. 

SnapGrip

The SnapGrip is probably the fastest-to-deploy accessory grip we’ve seen, but it’s still unlikely that you’re going to snap it into place to take a single photo. So, the question remains, if you know you’re going to be taking a lot of photos, and you’re willing to carry a bigger device to do it, why not just use a dedicated camera? You’ll get better results from its larger sensor and fancier lens, for a start, plus extended low-light capability and so on. 

The SnapGrip is currently on Kickstarter, but ShiftCam already makes iPhone camera cases, grips, lenses, and other accessories, so the Kickstarter looks more like a publicity grab than a funding drive especially as there’s no launch date or price as yet. But if you know you want a grip, this really does look like the one to get.
