While I do own a decent DSLR and love to use it, the best camera you can use is the one in your hand. Most of you have heard that phrase, and it is true. Obviously no image can be captured if there is no camera to see it. These days almost everyone has a camera with them in the form of their cell phone; I have an iPhone 5, and I have become pretty proficient at creating amazing images using it. From understanding controls to a great post image workflow, the iPhone can take some pretty stunning pics. With that in mind, many companies are coming out with products to make use of the iPhone as a camera much easier. USB Fever has just introduced two items to help turn the iPhone into a more powerful camera tool.
The Shutter Release Grip is designed to turn your iPhone into a handheld point and shoot. To use it, simply set the phone to the photo or video mode and snap it into the grip and the phone is transformed to be held more easily. Three buttons on the back of the grip allow users to toggle from photo to video modes, click the shutter to take the photo and access the photo album to see what shots have been taken. There is no third-party app required, simply snap in the iPhone and start shooting. The Shutter Release Grip comes in white and is compatible with the iPhone 4, 4s and 5 models.

The Remote Shutter Release for iPhone/iPad/iPod helps solve a common photography problem. I am almost never in any photos from my phone because I am the one taking them. When I use my DSLR, the shutter can be activated via remote leaving me in the family and group photos. The remote shutter release is simply plugged into the 3.5″ audio jack. The cordless remote allows users to take a pic from up to 10 meters away, and it is great for shots that require the phone to be perfectly still or for group photos.
