XShot iPhone 4 Case and XShot 2.0 Review : How many times did you tried to take a picture of yourself ? How many of those pictures were good ? Have you ever asked a stranger to take a picture of you while on vacation ? Was it framed like you wanted ? XShot might have two solutions for you with the Xshot 2.0 and the XShot iPhone 4 / 4S Case.
First, let’s talk about the XShot 2.0. In short, the XShot 2.0 is like an extension to your arm. When you want to take a picture of yourself (no matter if you are alone, with the loved one or with friends), the XShot 2.0 will eliminate awkward photos taken at arm’s length. We all know what we are talking about here. You know ? Those photos that you have to take at least 4-5 times before you get something not that good ? You know ? Those photos where we can often see your arm on the side of the picture ? The XShot 2.0 will help you take pictures from unique angles without having to ask a stranger. You can also set the length of the stick anywhere between 9″ and 37″. That means no more arms on the side of the pictures. Setting it to 37″ will help you capture full background and scenery while setting it to 9″ will help you take close up pictures and of course, store it in a bag. The XShot 2.0 weights about 5 oz so it’s pretty light and easy to handle. Of course, you’ll add some weight to it as soon as you install your digital camera to it. The maximum recommended camera weight is 570 g but most of standard “point and shoot” cameras weight about 125 g so it shouldn’t be too hard to handle even with the camera installed on it. I recommend you to take some tests before taking real pictures. You’ll need some practice before you find the right angles but once you figure it out, you’ll enjoy this useful tool !
Now, let’s talk about the XShot iPhone 4 / 4S Case. A lot of people are using the digital camera feature of their iPhone these days so when it’s time to take pictures of yourself, you are facing the same problem as the digital camera : “How to take a good picture of yourself with your iPhone ?”. You can either try to take it yourself and ask a stranger. In both case, the result is often bad. Of course, if you had a digital camera, you could use the XShot 2.0. But since you have an iPhone, you can use the XShot iPhone 4 / 4S Case. Basically, the XShot iPhone 4 / 4S Case is a simple case designed exclusively for the iPhone 4 and 4S and it’s made of durable plastic but you can insert and lock a tripod adapter horizontally or vertically to it in order to mount it to a tripod (one flex mini tripod is included in the package), XShot 2.0, or monopod. Pretty cool, isn’t it ? With this case, you get two great things. First, you get a hard case with full enclosure to protect your iPhone and second, you get a way to use your iPhone with a tripod just like any standard digital camera. This is something you won’t be able to do without this case. This is a perfect solution to use with FaceTime and/or Skype as you won’t have to hold the iPhone in your hand while talking which is excellent for iPhone 4 camera stabilization. It’s also a perfect solution when you combine it with the Xshot 2.0 to take pictures of yourself with your iPhone.
