MobileMount+ For Smartphones Launched - MoblieMount+ is a new device that allows you to easily connect your smartphone to camera supports.
Whether you’re shooting a Hollywood-style video on a dolly or a self-portrait from your tripod, MobileMount+ is making it simple to attach virtually any mobile device with a flat surface to your camera accessories.
Comprised of two suction cups and one threaded 1/4" 20 ball joint, the MobileMount+ can be used as a camera mount as well as a car mount or a tabletop kickstand. When connecting the mount to a tripod or other camera accessory, users can unscrew the ball from the suction cup and attach it to any camera accessory that supports 1/4” 20 threads.
The ball and joint on the MobileMount+ allows users to adjust the mount at many angles, making it perfect for getting the right shot.
“Being that many of us use our smartphones as our primary, or only, camera, it’s a shame that so many great camera accessories can’t be put to use” said JR Sanchez, founder of MobileMount+. “It’s about time there was an affordable, versatile solution that makes your smartphone compatible with all of the accessories on the market.”
When the MobileMount+ is not being used as a camera mount, users can keep the two suction cups screwed together, allowing you to use it as a car mount for your mobile devices or a kickstand for your tablet. Its ball and joint feature allows users to adjust the device so your smartphone is at the perfect angle for following GPS, controlling Pandora or video chatting with friends.
Estimated availability for the MobileMount+ camera is Spring 2013. Starting from today, anyone can support MobileMount+ to production through Kickstarter.com, where backers of $35 or more are rewarded with a MobileMount+. Visit the J&M company website to learn more.
