Turn your iPhone or Galaxy S III into a full-fledged point & shoot camera with the SnappGrip
Coming to market this sometime after February, with pre-orders for the gadget available now, this simple attachment allows the iPhone 4/4S/5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III to be armed with all the comforts of a camera. From its grippable body that mimics the feel of a standard camera, it further shows off its versatility with its mode dial, physical shutter key, and zoom control. Essentially, you slide in your device into the SnappGrip, and from there, it’s ready for all your shooting needs!
As for some of the additional items that the SnappGrip features, they include the following:
- Wireless control over your smartphone via Bluetooth and an Android app or an iOS app
- An iPhone 4, iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S3-specific case to which the Snappgrip controller is easily attached or removed
- A tripod mounting point at the base of the controller
- A power switch and a micro USB connector for easy recharging with any standard USB/micro-USB cable
- An internal lithium ion battery that will last up to 60 hours on standby
If you place a pre-order right now, you can reserve yourself a unit for a mere $79 – if not, it’ll retail for $99 when it’s released.

sandblast it and smack it to a sharp edge like the xperia z and we'll see what phone is solid.

the only problem is that you would look stupid holding that to your head

I feel like it needs to be able to enhance the original camera lens for it to do any good. It looks like it just bulks up your phone.

totally agree... when reading the title, I was expecting a full back cover to enhance grip, physical button, camera lens/lenses, and maybe xenon flash...
Oh well, probably later...

But does it add lenses? If not, why should I care about making my phone bulkier while doing the same things it did before?

With the Bluetooth I bet it has a bit of "shutter lag."

If the case will let the phone as bulky as a point and shoot camera, wouldn't less bizarre carry a smartphone AND a good point and shoot camera? I'll never understant these alternatives camera solutions for smartphones...

with that cheap optics it won't turn them into super-duper camera...no matter how hard they would try

At least the added part is removable, all you need to keep on it is the case, and it really should add a lens to it, but if it's bluetooth, then it should be able to work as a remote camera button, which would be cool I suppose, possibly more practical than a timer, provided you have a free hand and something to prop your phone up against.
