Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — A new and inexpensive way to allow picture-takers to attach their smartphones to their Digital Single-Lens Reflex Camera (DSLR) is now available. By using Square Jellyfish accessories and a flash screw mount adapter, people can take photos and video simultaneously with their DSLR and smartphone.
“The new DSLR setup is a major development for parents looking to capture smiles and memories of their children,” said Judie Kuhn, Square Jellyfish product manager. “Having a smartphone attached to the top of the camera allows parents to play videos, photos and music that will direct their kids’ eyes toward the camera lens, letting moms and dads everywhere get that perfect shot.”
Other reasons for mounting a smartphone to the top of a camera include the ability to directly upload photo and video content to social media platforms and at the same time be able to capture the identical image on a DSLR.
When purchasing the Square Jellyfish Spring Tripod Mount for $14.95, photographers just need to purchase a separate flash shoe mount adapter to attach their smartphones to their cameras. The adapter can be purchased online at Amazon.com or at a local camera store for just a few dollars. Similar pre-packaged setups offered by competitors retail for up to $75, yet by purchasing Square Jellyfish products, the entire setup can be purchased for under $20.
Though not necessary, parents and other picture-takers can also elect to purchase the Square Jellyfish Micro Ball Head that allows for increased camera angle flexibility. Square Jellyfish also offers small, portable tripods including Jelly Long Legs.
Other Square Jellyfish products include small cases to store Apple ear buds that double as a stand for a smartphone or tablet. All Square Jellyfish products are small, lightweight and pocket friendly to take on the go. Designed in the U.S.A., Square Jellyfish patents are pending.
