BUFFALO, N.Y., April 15, 2011 /New York Netwire/ — Whether one is mountain climbing in Spain, paragliding in Switzerland or at a family gathering the Quik Pod(R) Mobile, developed by Fromm Works, allows the photographer to be included and properly centered in photos and videos taken on an iPhone(R) or other smartphones. A person simply holds the extended Quik Pod(R) and Quik Pod Mobile, with a smartphone attached, and properly framed photos and videos are captured without the help of strangers.
The Quik Pod Mobile Smartphone Tripod Adapter takes self-portrait photography to new heights. Weighing in at less than 2 ounces yet offering up to 25 lbs of grip power for a worry free hold on the smartphone. The Quik Pod Mobile holds all present and future iPhones, with similar dimensions, including 3G/3GS, 4, all iPod touch models, HTC EVO, Samsung, Blackberry and all popular smartphones. It adapts smartphones to a standard 1/4-inch x 20 tripod screw and with the use of available self-timer apps such as “Self Image” for face recognition and timer countdown allows the photographer to be easily and professionally included in shots. The unique adjustable thumbwheel width control allows many smartphone cases to remain attached for convenience.
