We’re pretty big fans of the Glif tripod adapter from Studio Neat here at TNW. It’s a slick rubberized accessory that slips onto the corner of your iPhone and adds a tripod-ready 1/4 20 threaded port on the bottom.
It’s clever, well-designed and a pleasure to use, just like the iPhone. They even offer a keychain and stabilizer addon in the Glif+ package. Now, both the Glif and Glif+ have been updated for the iPhone 5 and pre-orders are live on Studio Neat’s site.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
To get you excited, they’ve provided us with a couple of prototype shots of the new adapter paired with an iPhone 5 (and shot with an iPhone 5, so meta!):
Note that the prototypes are white, but the final product will be the same black rubberized plastic as the original Glif.
The new Glif for iPhone 5 is available now for pre-order. It’s just $20 and its one of the best things any iPhone photographer could buy for themselves. The Glif+, with the Serif keychain adapter and the Ligature support arm included, is $30.
And if you’re interested in getting some insight into how to run a hardware startup, right from Studio Neat’s Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost, then check out their new book It Will Be Exhilarating.
