XShot iPhone Tripod Case

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

We have featured many different iPhone cases here at the ‘Brick, but this one will let you use your iPhone with a tripod so you can take photos and record videos with ease. The XShot iPhone Tripod Case looks like a standard iPhone case, but it comes with a neat add on that lets you mount your iPhone onto a tripod.

When you don’t need to use it with a tripod, just take the add on off easily. The XShot iPhone Tripod Case will be available later this month for $25. Should come in handy for those who take lots of pics with their iPhone.

jobygm2There are times when you really need some way to hold your iPhone steady while you take a picture, ride a bike, or walk while pushing something. The catch is that most tripods aren’t flexible.

blurtripodI love my iPhone, but if I am to be honest, the camera sucks. In fact, I never use the camera because I can’t take a decent picture with it. I know some folks who use the iPhone cam all the time; I just don’t like the image quality. Perhaps what I need is a tripod for the iPhone.

Mobile Mechatronics has announced the Blur iPhone tripod adapter and tripod. The Blur system includes an adapter that fits onto a tripod and holds the iPhone for taking pics that are less blurry. The kit also includes a small tabletop tripod as well.

Review: In Your Face iPhone Holder

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2009

Review: In Your Face iPhone HolderA while back we told you about the iFlyz iPhone holder, designed to hold your iPhone during long flights. It’s a great idea for sure, but you have to question the whole suction cup idea. You don’t want to trust your expensive gadget to a suction cup.

That’s where the In Your Face iPhone holder comes in. It does pretty much the same thing, for the same price, just in a much safer way as there is no suction cup involved. Instead it uses a much stronger spring-loaded iPhone clamp. I’m happy to report that it does it’s job well and has multiple uses while you keep your hands free.

Tripod iPod speaker

Tripod iPod speakerWe’ve covered our share of cheap crap gadgets ’round these parts, but sometimes what looks like a cheap gadget can surprise you. Like this Tripod MP3 speaker for instance. Yeah, iPod/MP3 speakers are a dime a dozen, but they aren’t all created equal. I picked up one of these Tripod speakers because although my laptop has great sound, it could be louder, so I figured I would take a chance on this one.

The design is cool because it pumps the music in three directions. And as far as loudness, it doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s surprisingly loud and I haven’t had any sound problems at all, like crackling etc. Just attach your MP3 player via the headphone jack, plug it into your USB port and you’re good to go.

Bottle Cap Tripod is pretty handyIf you’re like me, there have been many times when a tripod would have come in handy for picture taking, yet for some reason I haven’t bought one yet. This Bottle Cap Tripod is a handy solution and it doesn’t require you to tote anything heavy around. And chances are you have a soda bottle nearby. This gadget screws into the mounting screw on your camera, then you just put it on a bottle cap. Instant tripod. At only $10, it keeps you from being weighed down with larger equipment.

Biopod Automated Tripod: Robo-Paparazzi for short people

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2008

Biopod Automated Tripod: Robo-Paparazzi for short peopleThe Biopod automated tripod is a concept at the moment, so we don’t have to worry about Robo-Tripods following us around and selling pics to tabloids just yet. But one day soon that is exactly what will happen.

This little guy crawls about 3 inches off of the ground and can’t even grip walls to get it’s shot. So given it’s size and adherence to the ground, this thing will be stalking little people and snapping upskirt pics only. Until it hovers, that’s all it has career-wise. You gotta start somewhere. I suppose it could always catalog footwear and sidewalk pot-holes.

Stand Pouch replaces the tripod

Stand Pouch replaces the tripod
Here’s a nifty little device that should come in very handy. Normally, when you can place your camera on a flat surface to take that perfect shot, you can’t angle the camera easily. That’s where the Stand Pouch comes in handy.

It’s basically a camera case with a tripod connector built in. The connector can be adjusted just like a tripod. You carry your camera in it, then just put your camera on it. Simple right? Well then why didn’t you think of it? Or me for that matter.
