It's SIMPLE. Screw iCandy on to your camera's universal tripod mount (you can still use a tripod) and click your smartphone into our universal clamp. Ohh... you can also adjust the arm's length or direction by simply loosening a thumb screw. Play something entertaining or utilize your favorite DSLR application...THAT'S IT.
It's UNIVERSAL. It works with almost any smartphone on the market and almost any DSLR. Own a camera with a battery grip (i.e. Nikon D3, Canon 1D, etc), don't worry we have you covered. iCandy will ship with two extenders. One for battery grip-less cameras and for cameras with grips.
It's MULTIFUNCTIONAL. Let's say you're shooting a model or senior; instead of playing cartoons on your phone try turning on the phone's forward facing camera. You'll be amazed to see how your subject can get instant feedback on your posing recommendations, because they can see themselves! In fact, you might even hear your model say, 'It does look better like that.' For videographers, iCandy places your smartphone directly below the lens on your camera, which means you can use your smartphone as a teleprompter.
It's APP FRIENDLY. Maybe you've downloaded a great application on your phone that works directly with your camera. It's always been difficult to hold your phone and your camera at the same time. Not anymore! Simply loosen the bottom knob and spin your phone 180 degrees. You will see that the screen on your phone is now sitting directly below your camera, allowing you easier access to applications.
