xShot iPhone Tripod Case Review


http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:gCy22-VTrLt-HM%3Ahttp://www.geeky-gadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/XSHOT-iphone-case.jpgNot many people use a tripod to take video or pictures. Most average people are content with using nothing but their hands to keep their videos nice and stable. However, as a reviewer I know the benefits of a tripod as I use one almost everyday! The iPhone 3GS has a very nice camera for a phone. It’s one of the best in it’s size. Originally it wasn’t compatible with tripods, and with no video stabilization features to speak of it’s no surprise that videos could turn out extremely shakey! Not anymore…

Conclusion:

There’s really not a whole lots to say about the xShot iPhone Case. It;’s meant to do one thing and one thing alone: make your iPhone compatible with tripods. And it certainly gets the job done. However, thirty dollars is a bit steep. It’s more expensive than some small tripods and the same price as some very popular iPhone cases. For a case that doesn’t do a whole lot of protecting it sure does cost a lot. That is my only qualm with this product, so if you’ve got money to burn or desperately need your phone to be tripod compatible then go for it!

Pros

  • Gives you he ability to mount your iPhone on a tripod!
  • Easy to use

Cons
•    Chrome finish is very prone to fingerprints
•    Might be to pricey for some
