PocketDemo PDO-0001 Overview

  • 1Description

The Flash Dock from PocketDemo is a great way to unite your iPhone, or any similarly sized smartphone, with your DSLR camera. The case is designed to hold your smartphone and attach to the hotshoe on your camera. This allows you to take advantage of the wide range of photography-related apps out there via your 3G, 4G, wireless or Bluetooth connections.

While the hotshoe is only used for holding the adapter, once attached you can reap the benefits of combining your DSLR and smartphone capabilities. Geotag photos with the same GPX files your smartphone apps use. Share photos through social media channels, text messages or via email. Or even use an app to calculate the light meter reading, depth of field, and level your camera to the horizon.

Holder for iPhone/Smartphone
Add features to your camera without having to buy an expensive upgrade! Upload to your favorite social media or photo sharing websites, and geotag your images as you shoot them, no trip home or computer required
Share Photos via 3G / 4G & Wireless
Your DSLR very likely has no 3G or 4G connectivity built-in, but with this adapter you can add the functionality and all the benefits that come with it. Simply use an Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card and send images to your phone to share with the world. Use your phone's 3G, 4G or wireless connections to quickly share them with friends and family without having to leave the spot you shot them from
Geotag Photos with GPX Smartphone Files
Just like mobile and wireless connectivity, your DSLR may not have any GPS capabilities built in, so add them with this adapter. Record your trek with the GPX files your smartphone already uses, then use the files in Aperture, Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, Picasa or anywhere they are supported
Geotag Photos via Bluetooth Connections
Add-on adapters that use Bluetooth connections can send real-time location information to your camera, just like a more expensive GPS receiver. This is another way you can imprint travel data onto your images so you never forget where your favorite photos were taken
Use Phone's Flash as AF Beam
The flash your smartphone's camera uses can also be triggered to help your camera autofocus in low light. Without an AF beam, or if the AF is struggling even with one, the bright flash from your smartphone may be all it needs to catch the perfect focus and turn an otherwise blurry image into a keeper
Use Flashlight Phone Apps as Fill Light
When the lighting just isn't right, there may be flashlight apps you can download to your phone that turn the smartphone camera flash into a constant-on flashlight. This in turn can be used like an LED fill or video light that will illuminate dark subjects that you otherwise would not have captured
Attaches to DSLR via Hotshoe
The camera cannot actually communicate through the hotshoe with your smartphone, but this convenient holder keeps your smartphone right where you need it above the camera. For access to the phone's screen, apps, flash controls, and connections the holder places it all at your fingertips so you can keep your eyes ahead, rather than constantly reaching into your pocket or backpack for your smartphone
Rotates 90° Vertical / Horizontal
Keep your smartphone where you can see it, whether you're shooting up to the sky or from down at a low angle. With a 90° vertical / horizontal adjustment you can stand it straight up to use the screen or aim the smartphone's flash, then tilt it back down horizontal for a less obstructed view of your subject

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some see iphone holder, I see an answer My hats off to the inventor of this device; it has become an answer to a problem - how do I attach my smartphone to my tripod! I just recently downloaded a times to my smartphone to time TV productions I'm shooting. This holder allows me, with minor attachments to attach my smartphone to my tripod...Thank you for your ingenuity!! Ted Lewis DP to the 'Tablecritic' BNN-TV

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great! Does what it says but doesn't hold any attachments to the phone. I had trouble with this when having a microphone attached to my phone. If using your phone for lighting only then works very well!

Will this fit iPhone 6? Can the clips on the side expand to fit a phone that is about .5 wider?
