Remember the days of the 24 exposure disposable cameras? When you went on vacation or out with your friends, you could pop one of these cameras in your bag or pocket and walk out the door.

CAMS Sling Strap and Plates Make Shooting Portraits Easier and More Comfortable than Ever

Most sling-style straps today have a problem: the mounting point. They all use a rather bulky connector or plate screwed into your camera’s tripod mount, so if you’re using a pro body or a battery grip on your camera, these straps make it uncomfortable, if not impossible, to take advantage of shooting portrait style.

Fortunately, GoPro was wise enough allow you to use your smartphone as a live view for your camera, and now that feature is being taken to a more practical level by a new iPhone case/GoPro mount hybrid called Gorigit. Read more…

Besides the dreaded vertical video, the worst thing about capturing video on a smartphone is camera shake, which leaves your video looking rather jerky and chaotic at times.
