If you’d like to snap pictures while standing away from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, this nifty little device makes it easy to do so. Gizmon’s Remote Shutter simply plugs into your gadget’s headphone jack and provides you with a remote you can use from several feet away.
To keep things lighthearted, the remote is designed to look an old canister of film. While its retractable cord isn’t long enough to let you stand on the other side of the room, it’s perfect for letting your grab high-quality images when your device is on a tripod or mounting bracket, since you can snap pics without touching the screen and potentially shaking the camera – especially important in dark scenes. Another advantage of the corded design is that it’s compatible with all camera apps, whereas the Bluetooth remotes out there require software developers to modify their apps to be compatible.
The Gizmon Remote Shutter is fully compatible with the iPhone 3GS/4/4S/5 as well as the iPod Touch and iPad 2 or higher. You can grab one now over on Amazon for $23(USD).
