Always wanted a DSLR, but couldn’t find enough reasons to shell out the money for one, especially if you already own a smartphone? Miggo has just introduced ‘the world’s most advanced camera grip for iPhones and Androids,’ called the Pictar Pro. This accessory turns your device into a simplified DSLR of sorts. Featuring a sleek satin-finish brass-body, four larger control wheels / buttons for one-hand use, an exposure compensation wheel, multi-state shutter release, rocker zoom switch, and a smart wheel that lets you select one of nine shooting modes. Just slide your phone into the grip, load up the Pictar App, and you’re ready to shoot. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.
“A viewfinder attachment lets you shoot in bright sunlight by showing your camera’s live view on a portion of your screen that you view through the viewfinder. Built-in Qi wireless charging allows the grip to keep your smartphone juiced during long days of shooting. Features of the Pictar Pro include shutter speed control, ISO control, a larger zoom range on iPhone, RAW/TIFF files, a tripod mount, and a cold shoe. A [Kickstarter] contribution of $119 and up will earn you one of the first Pictar Pro units when the project ships in March 2019,” according to Peta Pixel. Kickstarter page.
