ShiftCam ProGrip and lenses
I was really excited about the ShiftCam ProGrip from the people who created the ShiftLens system. I have to say that I do not recommend this product to anyone using an iPhone 13 mini.

I think it has a lot of potential for users of the larger phones, but their support is not great, their website isn’t updated regularly enough with accurate information, and that has left me in the position of selling my kit in the near future.
