Adonit PhotoGrip Qi is a photography kit well worth the price. It contains a grip that gives you more stability while taking pictures. The grip also happens with a wireless charger and telephone stand. It is a Bluetooth remote control, a small stand, a carrying case and a neckband.
Adonit's PhotoGrip Qi is a multi-function set for iPhone graphics. The headpiece is the grip itself, which expands to fit just about any 4.5-inch or larger smartphone. Please note that while it still works with a thin case, a phone in a thick case will not fit into it.
The grip itself serves several purposes. The main purpose is to give you a better grip on the iPhone, but it does a lot more than that. Amazingly, it's a wireless charger and 3000mAh battery. Pop it on your wireless compatible iPhone and it will charge your phone while you are taking pictures. Between use, lock the grip with the supplied cord, which is USB-A to USB-C. The grip has a USB-C port. While the cord is included, the wall charger is not.
The grip can be used as a stand to hold the phone upright in either a lying or standing position. In the test, however, the stand is only moderately stable. It works well on a hard surface, but when I made it on a softer surface, it fell straight over. Even on a hard surface, some jostling or even a strong gust of wind can turn it over. Fortunately, there is a table stand inside the set, which is far more stable. The stand has a screw on the top that screws into the threaded hole at the bottom of the grip. In fact, the hole is standard stand size; I was also able to turn it on a full size tripod made for DSLR cameras. So you are not limited to the small stand that comes with this set. The stand can also be kept closed for another way of gripping the phone.
I love that it charges the phone while taking pictures without thinking about it.
When you use the grip, you can still press the shutter button on the screen or press the button at the top of the grip which feels very natural. The button appears at first glance just to be part of the grip, but it is actually a removable Bluetooth shutter remote control. You need to connect it to the iPhone in the app settings, so you can use it as part of the grip or separately. The remote control works from up to 1
Included is also a carrying case that connects the neck belt. The neck belt is nice and wide, so it is comfortable to wear. It is quite a long time, so it is almost in the middle of my thigh. Adonit Photogrip Qi comes in black, as shown in my pictures, or White (with mint green accents.)
Adonit PhotoGrip Qi: What I like
Gripet makes it possible for the phone to feel more like a camera, so it's very comfortable to use and gives you a safer grip on the iPhone. I love that it charges the phone while taking pictures without having to think about it. Having the shutter button double as a Bluetooth remote control is a smart touch. The stand and carrying case complement the set nicely.
Adonit PhotoGrip Qi: What I Don't Like
Although I usually use thin cases, a thicker case will still not be compatible with this. My other problem is the stability of the stand. The stand works well, but if you use the grip without the stand, you are still supposed to use it as a stand. You can, but I will be tired of doing it. It is just not very stable in a horizontal or vertical position.
Very cool set
Adonit PhotoGrip Qi: Bottom line
Adonit PhotoGrip Qi will be a nice addition to any iPhone photographer's collection. There is a secure phone grip, a 3000mAh wireless power bank, and a tripod. The shutter button is actually a Bluetooth remote control that can be used on or off the grip. Rounding the set is a small stand, carrying case, charging cable and neckband. I love that it has so many features for the price, and bonus loader makes it even better. The phone stand does not seem to be as stable as it should be, but fortunately it comes with a very stable stand.
