Adonit PhotoGrip Bonus Pack Review
Ever stuck your phone out in front of you to take a selfie, only for your fingers to get all twisted as you constantly adjust to get that perfect angle? More phones are becoming rounder, slipperier, and much harder to hold with just your fingers. Which is why products like the Adonit PhotoGrip are invented.
It’s exactly what it says on the box. The Adonit PhotoGrip is a way of being able to get a better grip on your phone, while taking that all important selfie. Can’t miss that great lighting after all. There’s a moulded grip on the back, with grooves to rest your fingers. It reminds me of a trigger on a pistol. I could easily wrap all four fingers around the device and rest it in my palm.
On top is also a Bluetooth trigger, which when pressed, will instantly take a photo. It’s very easy to pair with your phone too so setup is a breeze. On bottom is a tripod mount, which you can use the included mini tripod in the box, or an existing tripod that you have already. I tested it with my Manfrotto PIXI Evo 2 tripod and it worked fine.
The Adonit PhotoGrip will even stand on its edge too so you can take some portraits when paired with the Bluetooth remote. If you also want to edit your images, you can do by using the included flat-disked stylus. Use inside Snapseed, Lightroom Mobile or even Instagram to get through the various menus.
The whole unit is very light, which may mean that I wouldn’t go slinging it about or even drop it too many times. The tripod especially. There’s flex in the legs, but not much. I wouldn’t keep the tripod connected to the main unit if you’re going to be transporting it in a bag. Being made from plastic though makes it very easy to hold. A chunk of metal could be heavier and you’ll be back to square one.
The whole thing is being sold online for $39.99 which I think is quite a fair price for the contraption. You also get an included neckstrap and carrying pouch too to keep things protected when in transport. You can find more information on the Adonit PhotoGrip website, and pick one up for yourself.
