Gary Fong Creates Simple Tripod Adapter for the iPhone 4

Gary Fong, the dude and company behind the LightSphere, has come up with a simple adapter you can use to attach your iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS to a tripod. Unlike existing tripod adapters that utilize special cases or suction cups, Gary Fong’s adapter allows you to simply slide your phone in — assuming you don’t use any kind of case that changes the dimensions of your phone.

However useful this adapter might be for you, the price might cause you to go with a DIY alternative — the plastic adapter will set you back a cool $20. The adapter will go live in the Gary Fong store on September 3rd.

    Dude, that’s a device that besides entertaining people with low IQ also takes some blurry, noisy and full of encoding artifacts pictures. I wonder why a 5 MegaPixel cameraphone gets so much attention when there are so many better alternatives out there that do a better job at a smaller price? Just because it from Apple? At least do you get money or something free from them? If not, I presume you own one, and my first sentence fits you … Come on, so many DSLRs are seeing the light of these days and you come up with this. That’s a shame. I sought that PetaPixel it’s different from an iCrap fanboy site but it seems not.

    Thanks for the feedback. Everyone here at PP uses Android (I have a semi-ancient G1), so we’re not exactly fanboys/girls.

    One reason why a lot of attention has been given to cameraphones recently in the blogosphere is because it’s making photography more and more accessible to people who previously weren’t interested in carrying around a camera all the time, and that’s pretty exciting (not so much the quality of the cameras on the phones).

    Thanks again.

    Accept my apologies then and please try to balance the news of cameraphones with more HTC and Samsung or whatever. I do not agree, though, that taking pictures with a cameraphoe it’s called photography just because the internet it’s flooded with low quality pictures that in the best case look better if they are resized at half the resolution that they were taken. And just because it’s easier these days to point and shoot at everything without thinking if the result will be at least decent doesn’t make one a photographer.
