The Strap is perfect for our Clip for the Lens Flipper, as well as the side pockets for the Clip on the pad. Big plus, there is room for a tablet too.

The Huge Flippin’ GiveAway-The Grip&Shoot

logo grip and shoot

Face it. We have all used our phones as a camera or video camera. I am sure many of us own a selfie stick. Some of us even have a blue tooth remote trigger. Go ahead, admit it, it’s ok!

One of the things i like to do on my Disney trips is selfies with some of the lesser thanked cast members, from the hotel maid to the custodians. After all, they play a huge roll in the magic of the parks. I will also admit that i have been known to grab a selfie with Micky and his friends. It’s harder now that selfie sticks are banned from the parks. Now there is a solution! And it’s in our Grand Prize in the Big Flippin’ Give-a-way!


The Grip&Shoot is a great way to take that selfie. It has a trigger to fire the shutter, and + and – buttons to zoom in and out. Gone are the awkward position holding to phone and being able to hit the fire button. And, your finger wont cover the lens!

Many of the devices i have used in the past have a proprietary case, making it impossible to use your existing case or battery case. While the Grip&Shoot comes with a plastic case for the iPhone 4 and 5, it also comes with Jawz, a universal adapter that will hold about any phone with or with out a case. When not in use it folds out of the way.


How it works:

The Grip&Shoot is run by it’s own app and connects through Bluetooth right in the app. The grip it self is made out of a high grade plastic, and fits easily in the palm of your hand, and the buttons are easy to reach. with your index finger and thumb. In the app it self, you can do some pretty awesome things, like over or under expose your image, You can also change your white balance. For composing the image, there are three grid styles to choose from. It’s a very well thought out app. Of course, it has all the normal features like your image size/shape, reverse camera, and toggle the flash from off, on, and continuous. You can toggle Geo Tagging too.  That is  just on the picture side. It would be great for phone video too. the +/- buttons makes it easy to pan in and out during live video. There are endless possibility to how you can use this creatively!

It’s a huge Flippin’ Christmas Giveaway!

It's that time of year, and the Flippin' Christmas Give-a-way!

It’s that time of year! Its the Flippin’ Christmas Give-a-way!

I love Christmas time. For me, it’s Christmas. For you it might be something else. None the less, its something special. I love watching my wife as this time of year gets closer. She will talk about how she will decorate the house, and ask me more then once, “Have you thought how your going to hang the lights this year?” Its seeing her filled with a joy and happiness.  It’s a time of year where we all seem to be a little more generous, kind, and thoughtful of our fellow man. It’s a time when we tend to give more. I am sure you have heard all this before, and hear it year after year. Though, it’s true.

Here at the Lens Flipper, we are in that same spirit. We are feeling giving. That’s why we have started our Flippin’ Huge Giveaway. We have some Flippin’ Awesome friends that came together at the last minute to present this really cool giveaway. We want to give a shout out to our friends at, thinkTankPhoto, Black Rapid, MagMod Hoodman, Grip and shoot, Landscape Magazine, Wild Planet Photo Magazine and Spiderholster for their generosity in helping us with this giveaway.

So, as we enjoy this season, we want to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, or simply, Happy Holidays. Oh, and one more thing we want to wish,
