Mechanical Shutter button
It takes our team 13 months and 8 prototypes to build this core function. Our Unique mechanical shutter button doesn't rely on Bluetooth, any software or hardware to plug into the iOS system. Just initiate your phone's shooting mode, and press the shutter button embedded in the case. The mechanism is safely integrated into the case and gives you the satisfying click of a Real Camera. Shoot by one hand. Shoot vertical. Quick and Easy.
Replaceable Camera Handle
Smartphones are designed for communication, not for taking photos. It's just awkward to use one hand holding the phone and the other one fumbling around on the touchscreen. No more, we say!
Shuttercase gives you a camera handle that enables to you hold your phone like a light-weight DSLR. We try to mimic the shape and feel of your favorite vintage camera, a design that has been perfected over more than 130 years.
Built-in the Camera Handle
Shuttercase's removable camera handle does much more than making it easier to take photos. Inside is a powerful battery that recharges your phone as you take photos and videos.
Powerful. Handy. Removable. Pocketable.
Add-on Lens Platform
The design philosophy of Shuttercase is to develop an open platform for smartphone add-on lenses so that you can try different things. So our lens mount plate is replaceable and removable. Currently, Shuttercase for iPhone 8Plus/7Plus is compatible with SiRui Lens. More will come!
iPhone Stand built-in
Shuttercase's removable camera handle also acts as a stand for your phone. It's easy to watch movies or browse through your photos hands-free, in either horizontal or vertical position.
Selfie with iPhone X has never been easier. Just position Shuttercase vertically, keep a little distance and start iPhone X's count-down self-portrait shooting mode. 5 seconds later, you got a perfect portrait! IGTV or Instagram users will find this function so comfortable.
with Mechanical Shutter embedded
Shuttercase is not another cumbersome camera gear. We design it always with our everyday user in mind. Just remove the camera handle and push on the thin hand-grip, you will get a light-weight everyday protective case. What's better, the mechanical shutter button is still there functioning. So, you have the best of both worlds. Shuttercase is the ultimate tool we create for you photo-lovers and Instagrammers.

Media Review Excerpts:
Article by JORDAN CARTON from Gear Hungry
Editor's Rating: ★★★★★
Professional photographers know that a good grip on the body of the camera is an absolute requirement to stabilize the device when shooting. But what if you’re a mobile phone photographer? You’d have to contend with the very slim proﬁle of your smartphone plus the relative difﬁculty of taking the shot pressing on the screen’s shutter button. This can result in blurry, out-of-focus shots. With the Shuttercase, forget about these limitations and you can easily take the shots like a pro.
What makes the Shuttercase so unique is that it comes with a built-in battery grip that is a lot similar to the ones we see in traditional professional DSLRs and some mirrorless camera systems. This allows you to hold the side of the smartphone with relative ease. Underneath this grip is a 3000 mAh battery that can help extend the power of your smartphone so you can take more pictures and shoot longer videos without having to reach for your power bank.
Inspired by the design of the classic 135 point-and-shoot cameras, the Shuttercase instantly transforms your iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 8 Plus into a remarkable mobile shooter. Too bad, it doesn’t come in an Android or other iPhone smartphone conﬁguration. Nevertheless, the Shuttercase should make mobile photography and ﬁlmmaking even more fun.
Aside from the integrated camera battery grip, the Shuttercase also comes with a unique physical shutter button. This eliminates the need to touch the screen if you want to take the shot. This stabilizes images while also giving you the exceptional experience of shooting with a real camera.
Speaking of the battery grip, this can also be removed so you can use it more like a standard smartphone case.
Ideal for social media inﬂuencers and digital content creators, or just photography lovers (https://www.gearhungry.com/gifts-for-photography-lovers/), the Shuttercase is an engineering masterpiece that transforms your smartphone into a professional-looking camera. It’s not a DSLR, but it’s far better than a point-and-shoot.
I have been a street photographer for over 50 years. Obviously, I started with film back then and had a good bit of success. I have never done it professionally, I have had other careers, but mostly do fine art for magazines, shows and galleries. I moved to digital full time around 2007, have used all kinds of gear but have no preference. I thought I could take a good photo with anything in my hands, but I fumble with iPhone photography. Perhaps, I am a bit old, my hands too big and clumsy, and so never seriously attempted phone photography. I thought I would surely drop the phone and break it at some point. Then I saw an article on Shuttercase and thought, there's the solution. Now, I use the Shuttercase with Moment Lens Mount for my iPhone and they are perfect. The Moment wide lens and Shuttercase combo are simply amazing. Over time I have been surprised by the images that my wife gets with her iPhone which I process and realized that phone cameras offer unique capabilities that the cameras I have been using don't. For one thing, they are ubiquitous, everyone has them, and no one thinks twice about me pulling one out and using it, even where photography is discouraged. Culturally too, there are situations and locations where photography is frowned on but no thought is given to those with cell phones. So, I am once again in the learning mode, after all these years, figuring out what app to use, how best to process, but the choice in gear has been solved.
Great Service and Great Product
My first case was too tight, I reached out and got a replacement within 3 days. Great service. As for the product, I love the overall design. The camera handle with battery alone is worth the purchase. Highly Recommend!
Perfect for upping your photography game!
This case is perfect for taking photos and not having to worry about your phone battery being drained! The battery grip and wrist strap give you the stability needed to hold on to your phone while taking photos without the concern of dropping it. The battery grip allows you to charge your phone after shooting for a long time or even while you continue shooting. Love this case and customer service is great too! A must for those who use their phone for all types of photography!
Best accessory for your phone
This makes your phone feel like an actual camera and makes it much easier to hold and shoot pics. I used this case on my Vegas trip and worked flawlessly. The removable batteries are great for grip even when not in use. The mechanical button it awesome and I think it’s a plus that it’s not connected thru Bluetooth. The only issue that I had is I use the Moment wide angle lens on this case but it doesn’t feel completely secure, Fox that issue and you have the perfect case. Thanks!
My first impression of the shuttercase is WOW! Setup was very simple and easy. I was surprised at how light the whole system is with the battery pack equipt. The shuttercase makes taking a photo with your phone a breeze. Easy one hand point and shoot functionality. The lens mount makes it easy to attach your lenses and get great shots. The shutter button is amazing and works terrifically. The thumb rest is comfortable and functions just like a DLSR cameras thumb rest. The camera handle/ battery pack stores enough power to make sure I could capture photos all day. The handle itself allows me to have a great grip and stabilization. I’m glad I made this purchase and looking forward to what else shuttercase has in store.
