About this project
The Grip & Shoot System (Patent Pending) is the only camera rig you'll need for shooting photos and video with your iPhone 4S! Our system is made up of three parts: the Shooter Case, the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Grip, and the Tripod Mount.
The Shooter case is made from a durable thermoplastic elastomer that not only provides protection, but also allows acces to all buttons and ports. What separates our case from all the others is the camera shoe built right into it's side. This shoe allows an easy and secure connection to our BLE Grip.
The second part of our system is the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Grip. Our BLE Grip works wirelessly with our Grip & Shoot Camera App allowing you to take pictures/video and zoom in/out with the press of a button. The BLE Grip is small yet durable and can be taken anywhere in your pocket. Inside the grip we've housed a BLE Radio which allows us to power the whole system using only a small coin cell battery. Because it's BLE, one battery is able to power the device over 10,000 clicks! When not in use the BLE Grip goes to sleep until our camera App is restarted.
Now we've actually taken the system one step further by designing a tripod mount as well. Since the BLE Grip works as a remote for your iPhone 4S, we saw the opportunity to take pictures and videos from a distance. Our tripod mount was designed to work as a standalone unit or attach to an actual tripod to give you the freedom to capture pictures and video over 100ft away!
Our Grip & Shoot App mirrors the basic functions of iPhone's Camera App and will be a free download in the App Store once our system goes into production. Check out the Grip & Shoot website.
You simply slide off the battery door at the bottom of the grip and replace it with a new 3V Coin Cell battery.
