Supercharge your iPhone videos with the new Olloclip Pivot Grip, a passive stabilizer that will help remove shake from your iPhone, give you a better grip on the phone during action shots and allow you to connect accessories to the iPhone.
The Olloclip Pivot Grip also allows users to attach a Go Pro and is fully waterproof so you can take it underwater.
Arriving in October, the Olloclip Pivot Grip will retail for $49.99 and works with phones using a universal clamp that should handle the current iPhones as well as the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that we expect on September 7th.
“Pivot is an important addition to the mobile photography accessories category,” said Patrick O’Neill, olloclip founder. “It’s compact and travelable. And with its unique hub design, it allows you to capture stunning video with confidence at any angle and in any environment – on land or even in water.”
Keep in mind this is not a gimbal or active stabilizer, so there may still be some shake in action videos. The benefit comes from the added grip that the Pivot Grip offers and the more natural holding position.
We’ve been using heavier wider grips for our iPhone videos while covering events like CES that help stabilize the iPhone without using a tripod or monopod. The Olloclip Pivot Grip offers similar benefits at a fraction of the price.
When you clip your iPhone or Android into the Pivot Grip you can also attach a small light to the top of the rig for better lit videos and the headphone jack is left wide open so you can connect a microphone. Adding these accessories allows you to compose a better video.
You can also connect OlloClip lenses including the 4-1in-1 lens system, Active Lens and Macro Pro Lens to capture the scenery better. Olloclip offers lenses and lens systems for the iPhone and for popular Android phones. These are sold separately and are available now. This also works with the Olloclip Studio case and other cases that add a standard tripod adapter to your iPhone.
You can pre-order the Olloclip Pivot Grip now for $49.99 at Olloclip and the black and red accessory will ship in October as well as go on sale at Best Buy that month.
