My new iPhone 4S takes nice photos and is almost able to replace carrying a digital camera. However, it's difficult to hold that little bar of soap properly. This Belkin accessory grip fixes that very nicely. It has separate buttons to replace touchscreen for photos and movie, making it feel like a real camera. Even a tripod socket so you can take your own picture. A bit overpriced but clever and useful .. except ..

... except it can only be used to take photos with Belkin's own photography app they call Liveaction photo (free)! So, as the price for using this, one is cut off from the hundreds of cool photo apps out there for iPhone, each of which takes pictures in a slightly different way, which is what the open source iPhone is all about - this is an astoundingly bad marketing decision by Belkin. Maybe they did not invite the right employees to their design meeting?? The shutter button does not even work with Apple's own basic Camera app. Since Liveaction is primitive as photo apps go, restricting one's usage to this software makes no sense.

Let's hope the Liveaction app deficiencies are lifted in future updates.

Also look for a lower price; this is no way a fifty buck item.

My iPhone, like many people, I'm sure, has replaced a conventional camera for photography.

This is a nice accessory that gives the user some flexibility for ease of photography using the iPhone 4. The grip uses an adjustable arm to cradle an iPhone regardless of the width of the iPhone case. It plugs right into the USB jack in the bottom of the phone. There are two buttons: One for photographs and one for videos. The video recorder button is a bit diminutive in size and oftentimes, difficult to feel for. The photographic button is just the right size. Unfortunately, there are no connecting ports on the grip to allow for iPhone charging without having to remove the iPhone from the device. This is a big negative for me, since I have to remove the phone to dock it for recharging. There is a tripod mount that allows for mounting of the grip/iPhone; however, since there is no accessory hole to keep the grip from rotating, this grip will only work in the horizontal, not vertical or angled orientation.

The Grip functions with the Live Action App that is downloaded from the iTunes store. Installation of software is simple. Since this accessory operations ONLY through the application, it is necessary to dock the icon in the home screen (at least that is what I did). Unfortunately, this grip only works through the app and not any other iPhone application such as the Facebook app, intrinsic camera app, Yelp!, Demon Cam, etc. That is a major limitation of this particular peripheral.

The application itself is decent. It allows the user to take photographs and videos easily with just a push of the mechanical button. Control for timer shooting and flash customization just like the intrinsic camera app are possible.

The LiveAction Grip works nicely to help you hold your iPhone for picture taking or movie making. However, it only works with the Belkin LiveAction app. This app is virtually worthless and is full of bugs. I have the latest version and there are many problems. After taking a picture, when I go to see what I took, it was always upside down! I had to quit the app and restart to get it to work. It freezes up, or has a very slow response. There are no HDR settings to take a good picture. No features come with the app other than to take a picture with or without a flash, or a movie. No way to turn off the shutter sound so even though it lets you take a still while you are making a video, the shutter sound comes out on your video. The hardware is worthless without good software.
The best use of this device right now is as a handhold for another photo app, or to mount your iPhone to a tripod because it does have a tripod mount screw hole.

It is so rare that any camera-related iPhone accessory will accommodate a case - I'm just floored at how well this works. It fits snugly into the 30-pin port of my iPhone 4S and expands to snugly hold my phone in it's Smigen case. With one hand, I can hold the phone, compose the shot and click the shutter release - all w/o touching the screen. The red button next to the shutter release is a quick toggle to the video mode. These hardware switches are SO MUCH FASTER than the software method of tapping the screen and waiting for a result. I highly recommend this product for ergonomic ease of holding your phone while taking photos - and for quicker snapshots w/ the physical hardware button. This thing is awesome.

This little accessory does exactly what it says it does. As some previous reviews have stated, it is only compatible with the LiveAction camera app made by the manufacturer. As a professional videographer, I found no problems with the quality of the photos and videos produced by this app. Appeared to be the same quality as the native iPhone camera app. ( It would probably be impossible to make it compatible with all the camera apps out there...and most likely each app maker would need to provide this functionality within their own app. So perhaps writing the publisher of your favorite camera app and asking them to provide this functionality would be the best way to handle this.)

The only functionality missing is zoom. Perhaps Belkin could add a little zoom lever to a future update similar to the one on my little Sony Cybershot camera.

I also own the Phocus camera case for my iPhone and I really really wish they had built in functionality like this Belkin device. The Phocus case is too thick to allow the use of both the case and this Belkin camera grip. I find myself using the Belkin Camera Grip far more than the Phocus camera case. In fact, I leave the Belkin Camera Grip on my iphone at all times...it makes for a handy way to hold the iphone and it doesn't add much bulk to the phone so it still fits in my pocket just fine. (The same can't be said for the Phocus camera case.)

The only problem I've had with this device is I have to sometimes unplug and plug it in again in order to get it to work after the phone goes into sleep mode.

I bought this device for $10 and at this price it is worth having. I certainly would not have paid the original price of $50.
