Recently I got the Pistol Grip Kit by Ztylus to write about, I wanted to share this very handy a versatile mobile tool with you all. It’s not just for iPhones. You can use this kit with most smartphones out in today’s market. As you read through this post you will see other handy ways to use this kit. Both products are very well made and easy to pack in your gear bag.
First I wanted to talk about the Smartphone Rig, which you can buy separately or comes with the Pistol Grip Kit. What’s nice is this rig opens up enough to fit your iPhone 6 Plus with a thick case. I do have photos of that with the Pistol Grip attached to the rig.You can even use a Galaxy Note 5 with a thick case on too. I tried it on my nephew’s Note 5 and it did work. Sorry I don’t have any photos to show you but if you go to the website, you will see how wide the rig opens up.
You can also mount the rig on your tripod.
There’s also a cold shoe mount on the top of the rig, so you can slide on a shotgun mic or any other type of mic. This rig is very versatile.
My iPhone 6 Plus fits nicely with the Ztylus case. It’s in their tight and doesn’t slide out. Make sure you have your smartphone lined up before you clamp it down and turn the knob. I made the mistake of not lining up my iPhone properly before screwing in the knob. I put my iPhone more in the middle for better balancing while filming videos. That helps prevents you from super shaky videos.
This also works with smaller iPhones without a case and my iPod touch.
I wanted to talk about the Pistol Grip. You can also use the drip with point and shoots, small DSLRs and mirrorless cameras.
It also comes with attachable D-Ring, so you can clip or clamp your pistol grip onto something. This D-Ring has a 1/4 – 20 thread mount. You can also unscrew the D-Ring and use the grip on as a tripod mount.
Thanks to the Pistol Grip Kit, I was able to film footage for this short movie I made with GeometriCam. It was better than sitting in a room moving around my iPhone. I could go outside and walk around to film my footage.
