Have you been relying more and more on your iPhone’s camera for its convenience and excellent image quality? At the meantime, are you missing the functionality and natural grip feel of your abandoned DSLR? Pictar is a revolutionary iPhone camera grip designed to upgrade your iPhone’s camera with full external control of shooting functions and a stable grip.
How to use Pictar?
You can turn your iPhone into a real camera simply by sliding it into the Pictar body. Pictar will then connect with iPhone wirelessly.
With the Pictar App, you can easily take high-quality pictures with five external controls, just like a DSLR.
- Shutter button with “half-press” for locking focus
- Zoom ring instead of touching the screen
- Selfie button to switch between front and back cameras
- Programmable exposure compensation wheel
- Customizable “smart wheel” to control many functions, such as picture mode, Shutter Priority, and ISO Priority
Pictar has a standard ¼” tripod mount on the bottom of the device, and a “cold-shoe” on top for connecting an LED lighting accessories or a microphone for added creativity and control.
- Wireless connection between Pictar and iPhone using high-frequency sound waves to save your battery. A standard AA battery can support 4-6 months of use.
- The modular mechanical design ensuring compatibility with different iPhones sizes. It fits most existing iPhone models (from 4 to 6s plus) and is ready for future models. For iPhone 6 / 6s, you can even keep a silicon case on when connecting to Pictar.
