Belkin LiveAction Camera Grip

The iPhone is easily one of the best technological devices of the 21st century and it does everything from making calls, surfing the net, playing games and of course taking photos and movies which are just some of the features of this amazing smart phone.

The iPhone 4S also boasts a high quality 8 megapixel camera which produces some exceptional photos and videos which does put some digital cameras to shame. However without a case, the iPhone feels a little fiddly when taking photos and filming videos, especially as you use the touch screen.

One workaround is the Belkin LiveAction Camera Grip which is an iPhone accessory that not only gives you an external shutter button but it makes your iPhone feel more like a digital camera and definitely bring your photos to life.

Features

Contoured, soft-touch design
Fast-fire shutter button
Two modes for photo and video
30-pin connector
Works with the LiveAction App
Case-compatible
1 Year Limited Warranty


The installation of the Belkin LiveAction Camera Grip was a breeze and our iPhone simply clicked into the holder via the charging port on the iPhone 4S.  That was basically it! 

The only downside is that we had to take off our iPhone 4 case which was a little fiddly and something I would probably not do in the long-term. Another fiddly aspect is that you need to download an App with the product called LiveAction which basically makes full use of the innovative design of the camera grip accessory.

The LiveAction App can also be used as a replacement for your inbuilt camera app on the iPhone which just like the previous app, allows you upload photos to Facebook or via e-mail. It's quite easy to use as well.

I also thought that having separate buttons for photos and videos was quite ingenious as it gives the user more control over their smart phone. Also the grip isn't the best in the world but it's considerably better than using just your iPhone.

The last feature of the Belkin LiveAction Camera Grip is that it also boasts an integrated tripod mount which removes camera shake all together. Add in a 1-year warranty and although it won't replace your digital camera, it is a decent option for those attached to their iPhones.
