Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

camera grip

To call Beastgrip a camera grip for your Windows Phone would be an understatement.  Beastgrip is more of a systems foundation for your Windows Phone camera that has a cold shoe to mount lights from, a lens mount for accessory lenses, and five accessory mounts that can be used with tripods, rails, stabilizers and more.

Beastgrip is the product of Chicago-based inventor/photographer Vadym Chalenko.  He took his idea to KickStarter and is about a month away from filling orders.  We were able to get our hands on a pre-release model and found Beastgrip to be an impressive, well built, photography accessory for Windows Phones.

It seems Nokia is always making some videos when they aren’t busy making new devices, adding exclusive apps to their Nokia Collection, or other general Finnish stuff. But usually those videos they make to promote their handsets and accessories are fun to watch, so we’ll keep sharing them. Here’s another one to pimp the Camera Grip for the Lumia 1020.

For those of you lucky enough to be sporting a Nokia Lumia 1020 along with the addon Camera Grip (PD-95G), you may have noticed that sliding on the accessory is easy as can be. However, removing the grip can be a tad finicky with users feeling like they may snap it or even damage their device. We know we’ve experienced this and we’re sure others have too.

Over the weekend we showed you some internal AT&T training videos for the soon-to-launch Lumia 1020. Concentrating on its massive 41MP camera, the videos also revealed a few accessories that AT&T is planning to co-launch on July 26th (remember, pre-orders start tomorrow).

Windows Phone Central can now confirm a few of those accessories, including an elegant all-black leather case from AGF ($35) and an OtterBox Defender ($50) for you folks who work at industrial sites and want to protect your new $650 investment.

Both accessories should be available for in-store purchases on the 26th and online ordering as well.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 was officially announced yesterday. The device will be an exclusive on AT&T here in the United States. Abroad we’re looking at Telefonica/O2 getting it in September (and they have a 64GB version to boot). It’s a sweet smartphone and there are about 41 million reasons you should get one. It’s also launching with a camera grip that adds more battery life and improves ergonomics when taking pics. Get it for free through the Microsoft Store.

We have seen a vast assortment of leaked images of the Nokia Lumia 1020 over the past month or so. The latest crop confirms the design we've grown accustomed to but also shows the camera grip in action.

The camera grip will be fitted with a tripod mount, two-stage camera button and gives the back of the Lumia 1020 a definite "point and shoot" camera look.

The other day we brought some exclusive details about Nokia’s supposed camera accessory for the upcoming Lumia 1020/EOS Windows Phone with a 41MP sensor. The news started with mention of a “camera grip” via FCC documents and then later, WPDang were able to confirm some more information about the add on accessory, which is expected to sell for an extra $70.

Now, an image has leaked of what the camera booster will look like and it’s kind of what we expected. The addon has a 1020mAh battery (35% boost), microUSB charging expansion, tripod mount, dedicated shutter button and of course it has the added benefit of making the Lumia 1020 feel more substantial in the hands, akin to a real point and shoot camera.

Wireless charging is not expected to be a part of this accessory, though a second clip on cover for wireless charging we are told will be available.

Howdy everyone, it's rumor time!

An unnamed source supposedly close to Nokia China just sent an interesting message to the outside world: the impending Nokia EOS will have a "camera shell" to go with that super mega awesome camera of modern technical wonder. According to the rumor, the accessory is a shell snapped on to the back of the phone, "raising the entire back side to level the camera hump, and providing better grip when using the phone as a digital camera". Additionally, the shell is said to have a shutter button built into it, further enhancing the photoshooting experience.
