Hands-Off PhoneSkoping

The folks at PhoneSkope continue to innovate, adding a Bluetooth shutter release to their line-up.  Having a shutter release (mechanical or electronic) has always been a powerful tool in any digiscoper’s bag of tricks, and this is an elegant way to fire off pics without introducing vibrations by tapping your phone’s screen.  Adding to the device’s utility is the included lanyard so you don’t have to keep tabs on it as you adjust your scope.  The shutter release also comes with a USB cable by which it can be recharged.  I went out and tried it a bit in the back yard- my verdict is that it is a slick accessory!
