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 Moment Lens V2( the " M " lenses from Moment Inc )
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.
Makes my iPhone a pleasure to use as a camera
I am a photographer but I never felt comfortable using the camera on my iPhone because it is so awkward to hold and not get your fingers in the photo. Bought a shuttercase and now it feels like a camera. They are a great company for service and the device is wonderful. The battery come in hand when sightseeing.
not used it yet - well built - good design hand grip slide was quite stiff as was the protective slide cover. Please put direction marks on sliders to show which way to insert. When to use / or not use the battery - advice please. Thank you for all your hard work - John ( uk user )
I can finally take full advantage of the camera in my iPhone. Canon, Nikon, Sony and Fuji have nothing on the iPhone/Shuttercase combo.
I like it alot, and keep it on my iphone all the time. I bought an iphone 8+ exclusively for camera use. This completes the setup.I don;t have moment lenses yet, so can't comment on that yet., There are two things that need further development. The minor one is the thumb thingy. I lost both of them quickly. In normal use they just fall out and get lost. A major one is the placement of the charge port for the battery handle. That port needs to be on one of the external surfaces, preferably on the bottom end. That would double the functionality of the unit. Overall, you have a great idea.
Battery connection broke on second use
Camera grip is nice but shutter button is stiff and the connection for battery broke the second time I used it while on vacation. I will get in touch next week when I get home
Hey David, We are trying to connect with you by mail but got no response. We will send you a new battery grip. Pls confirm your address? Are you still in Europe? BR Katy
