+ GRIPT is two things in one – it’s the first ever smartphone grip, so that you can create in-focus, handheld photos, and shoot smooth videos without awkwardly holding your phone or dropping it. GRIPT gives you the ergonomics of a dSLR or mirrorless camera at a fraction of the size and cost. Dedicated cameras always have some sort of grip, wrist strap, or neck strap to make sure your camera doesn’t bite the dust, why should our phones be any different? + GRIPT is also the best tripod mount available for smartphones. Why would you want to mount your phone to other equipment? It unlocks new possibilities for what you can make! Shoot in low light without a flash, create flawless panoramas, use a shoulder rig to make fluid video, make hyper-lapses of the clouds rolling in, or even mount it on a mini tripod on your desk to livestream or FaceTime with the family! The possibilities are endless.
The book we are producing is 12” x 12”, perfect bound, soft cover, offset print just outside of Portland, OR, printed on domestic paper. It will feature minimal amounts of text, to give more focus on the photos.
