There’s really not much I miss about using a real camera since exclusively switching to my iPhone 4. Well, except that decisive click of the button that lets you know that you’ve got the shot.
So wouldn’t you know that someone has invented just the gadget to give you that special “pop” when you snap your photos.
Enter Red Pop, a handy gadget that I’m just dying to get my hands on. After grabbing the Red Pop app, you attach it easily to your iPhone and allows you to manipulate it more like a camera and less like a phone that takes pictures. Simply push the big red button (hard to miss, huh?) and you’ve taken your photo. Or keep pressing to take photos in rapid succession.
And I love how it really appears to make one-handed shots easier, which if you’re like me, is how most of your photos are taken. One hand on the iPhone, the other wrangling children. Sound familiar? -Kristen
You can pre-order the Red Pop by pledging to support its development at Kickstarter.
This is very much The Awesome.
Yes, the Camera + app we just featured (and it’s still on sale, yay!) has a timer.
Works best with a gorilla pod or something to keep it steady, but I’ve used it with the back camera so I can see what we look like and it’s great.
That is one nifty gadget!
What I really miss about using a traditional camera is the timer! You know, you set your camera up on a table, ledge or chair, press a button and then run over and get in the shot with your friends. Is there a gadget out there for smartphones that does this?! This red pop gadget looks like it could have the makings for one.
