Product Highlights
  • Keeps Kids Focused on the Camera Lens
  • Fits Lens Diameters up to 90 mm

This Monkey by Shutter Huggers promises to be your most valuable tool for photographing children. As anyone who's spent more than a nanosecond with a child can tell you, getting and keeping their attention can be nearly impossible.

Two photographer moms faced with the challenge of chasing down and photographing their own children came up with Shutter Huggers as an ingenious way to grab children's attention and focus it right on the lens. Even the most distracted child is no match for the Monkey. Both cute and practical, the plush stuffed Monkey conceals the sometimes scary camera and intrigues curious little eyes. Capture photos that will last a lifetime and keep your audience's rapt attention for as long as you need it. The Monkey will fit lens diameters up to 3.5" (90 mm). It is recommended that you remove your lens hood when using the Monkey.

Compatibility Lens diameters up to 3.5" (90 mm)

        My grand kids were watching the monkey keeping their attention towards the monkey and looking straight into the lens. It has my vote for getting kids attention.

          I feel this is well made. Fits over my Canon 24-70 nicely. Have only had a few chances to use it since I received it and it has drawn attention to the camera from the little ones. The bigger ones enjoyed it too!

          So useful! Literally 110% success rate with this. The kids love it -- I've used it only a couple times since i just got it but its perfect a bit hard with a telephoto lens but when i used my fixed lens its perfect -- when i switch to a telephoto lens i just whip it around my wrist. IT'S LITERALLY THE BEST !!

          BUY IT! NOW!

            It worked great on a photo shoot of a 4 1/2 month baby. I wasn't sure it would since he was so young, but his eyes definitely followed it. Fit over my Canon EF 24-70 (hood off).

              The monkey works great for shooting with kids. Kids tend to say the name of the animal that you put on your lens (I also have an owl) and the word Monkey lends itself to pretty cute smiles. Better than the "Oh" face I get with the owl =) Plus, for shy kids they can meet your monkey, shake his hand and yank his tail. Sounds silly but trust me it works. (Works on the adults too)

                This product is great for photographing kids.It is made of steardy material. I would like to be about to put a squeaky in the inside to grab the attention of pets, but over all very satisfied

                  My son loves monkey so when I saw this product I bought it immediately. I even bought it for my friend's son and he's loving it, too.

                  I mainly use it to attrack my son to look at the camera because he does not like taking photos and would rather play with my camera. As soon as I put it on my lens he looked at it with a big smile! Nice shot!

                  I would give 5 starts, but I think it would be nice if it had a squeaky leg or arm.
