The new Dot Line iPhone Pod Kit With LED is both a support system and a fill light for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s.
The support system is composed of three parts: a grip handle which reveals a tripod when the top is unscrewed; an extension arm; and the holder for the iPhone. The grip handle with hidden tripod is 5-1/2” long. The hidden tripod features flex legs and is 4-1/2” long. The bottom of the handle has a female 1/4-20 thread and the top has a male 1/4-20 thread post. The 2-section extension arm can be mounted to the camera holder horizontally or vertically providing an extension of 10” to 19”. The mount for the iPhone holds the phone securely and has a protective backing to help prevent marring of the phone’s body while allowing all functions of the iPhone to be accessed.
The LED light features 40, 5600°K LED’s that are powered by 6, “AAA” alkaline or NiMH batteries (not included). Run time is approximately 1 hour. The light measures approximately 3-7/16” x 2-3/8”. Included with the LED light is a bounce reflector that attaches to the top of the LED via a hook and loop fastener.
The design of the LED and extension handle allow the user to photograph or video using either the front or the back lens of the iPhone allowing self portraits or videos as well as standard shots or videos.
