Shoot all of your photography with your iPhone camera when you have the Fjorden iPhone camera grip. This pocketable iPhone camera grip adds DSLR-like camera functions to your iPhone, letting you bring your creative ideas to life.

These days, even professional photographers rely on their iPhones for photos. But photojournalists and amateurs alike have the same complaint; the iPhone just doesn’t have the same controls and precision as a DSLR. Or does it? The Fjorden is a game changer in the realm of iPhone photography because it adds professional-quality camera controls to your iPhone in a size you can take anywhere. Let’s check it out.

Get pro-level controls for your iPhone

The control you have over a DSLR camera is what makes digital photography an art. Likewise, this pocketable iPhone camera grip brings the same precision to your iPhone with its 4 useful controls.

2-Stage shutter button

First, the Fjorden provides a 2-stage shutter button. It works just like the shutter button on your camera. Simply press it halfway to focus and press it down completely to take the shot.

Customizable control dial

Next, a customizable control dial lets you adjust your settings just the way you want them. It allows you to change your exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, focus, portrait mode aperture, and other options without interrupting your flow.

Multifunction button

Now, this is a cool control. It’s like a hotkey for your iPhone camera since you can set it to perform a range of functions. For instance, you could choose to have it trigger the flash mode or portrait mode. That way, your favorite controls are just a button touch away.

Zoom lever

Finally, the zoom lever lets you easily switch between iPhone lenses. It also helps you zoom in and out effortlessly. So instead of adjusting the zoom on the finicky iPhone display controls, this feature basically adds a precise manual control to your iPhone.

Take this iPhone camera grip with you anywhere

Thanks to Fjorden‘s small form factor, it doesn’t take up much space. In fact, when you slip it on an iPhone 12 Pro, the duo has nearly the same thickness as an Apple AirPods case. It fits even small jean pockets.

Use the iOS camera app for one-handed shots

This photography gadget needs a great app. And it comes in the form of the iOS Fjorden Camera app. It’s a professional app that makes one-handed shooting faster and easier. The Full Auto mode lets the iPhone’s capabilities shine, while Manual mode lets you set the parameters. It’s helpful to be in control of your workspace.

Meanwhile, the app’s user interface is fully customizable. That means you can assign features or parameters to the controls, designing a camera that’s completely customized to you and what you want to photograph.

The app also gives you control over various features, including exposure controls, focusing modes, white balance, file formats, grids, flash modes, and many others. Best of all, the in-house team develops new features all the time.

Pair this iPhone camera gadget with leading apps and lenses

Even better, this pocketable iPhone camera grip works with leading apps and lenses. In fact, it’s compatible with the ProCamera iOS app, Obscura, and Moment’s M-Series lenses.

Enjoy the many additional features

As if the precision camera features weren’t enough, the Fjorden iPhone also comes packed with additional features that make it convenient to own. For instance, the gadget itself turns into a fully adjustable kickstand for easy viewing when you’re done shooting.

Furthermore, a quick-release clip helps this pocketable iPhone camera grip snap easily and quickly out of the Fjorden MagSafe cases. What’s more, you can even use it as a camera remote when shooting on a tripod thanks to its Bluetooth connection. Night and shake-free photography is just a button away.

Have up to 12 months of battery life

You won’t have to worry about your Fjorden’s power. It runs on a standard CR2430 coin cell, which gives it a year of battery life. It’s also easy to remove and replace with the battery tray.

Rely on this camera accessory for all your photos

This pocketable iPhone camera grip is ideal for photography of all kinds. In the street, it provides precision and speed while remaining discreet. It’s also great for portraits, sports, and family photos. And Fjorden’s portable design makes it a natural gadget for travel photography.

Support an eco-friendly company

Finally, you’ll be happy to know that the company tries to reduce its environmental footprint. In fact, it’s committed to becoming a Climate Neutral Certified company. This means it will calculate, offset, and minimize the carbon it uses to produce and transport its products.

Fjorden is a pretty useful iPhone photography gadget. It has all the controls you need to make your iPhone feel like a real camera, and it comes in a discrete, easily transportable design. Shooting pro-level photography from your iPhone should be simple. With this gadget, it is.

The Fjorden iPhone camera grip typically costs $188.89. You can preorder it on Kickstarter for $141.37. What iPhone photography gadgets do you use? Send us your recommendations in the comments.
