Gary Fong introduces two new product bundles for iPhone users.
Gary Fong has bundled his iPhone Tripod Adapter with the Flip-Cage, a flexible camera support designed for compact cameras that gained a positive review at the Adorama Learning Center. Folded out, the Flip-Cage works as a desktop free-standing camera support, while folded in its roll bars can protect cameras (and in this case, iPhones) from damage when banged around or dropped.

New York, NY – OCTOBER 24, 2011 – Gary Fong, Inc., developer and manufacturer of cutting-edge photography equipment designed to help photographers experience new levels of creativity, today introduced two new value-packed bundles containing its popular iPhone Tripod Adapter and multi-purpose Flip-Cage which enables photographers to achieve professional quality results when using their mobile phone to capture pictures, video, or when streaming two-way video chat.
The Gary Fong iPhone Tripod Adapter features a ¼-20 female tripod socket which affixes to most tripods as well as the popular Gary Fong Flip-Cage lineup of camera stands. With two models, each tailored to snuggly fit the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 3GS, respectively, casual and pro shooters can steady their iPhones to produce crisp images and video in a wide variety of lighting situations. Through this new bundle offering, Gary Fong will be offering consumers their choice of iPhone Tripod Adaptors to combine with the multi-purpose Flip-Cage (in black).
The Flip-Cage instantly expands the capabilities of a camera or phone. When closed around the device, it provides protection from accidental drops or general wear and tear. When open, the Flip-Cage provides a stable table-top platform that locks the device in a vertical or horizontal orientation, enabling the photographer to step out from behind the lens and become part of the still or video footage. Additionally, the Flip-Cage can be used as a macro standfor shooting extreme close-ups, or with its legs pressed together can even act as a steady-cam to improve stability when shooting handheld video. The Flip-Cage also comes with movable flaps that both shade the screen to reduce glare and shade the camera lens to reduce lens flare.
“Photographers always say that their favorite camera is the one they have with them, so the iPhone’s portability, multipurpose capabilities and the ease with which it allows images to be shared, make it a hugely popular tool. We shouldn’t be surprised that the a majority of images on the social network site Flickr are shot with this great device,” said Gary Fong, internationally renowned photographer and CEO of Gary Fong, Inc. “With these new iPhone Tripod Adaptor -Flip Cage bundles, it is our goal to provide photographers of all skill levels with dynamic tools to help them make their creative vision a reality.”
The iPhone 3GS / iPhone 4/4S Tripod Adapter and Flip-Cage (Black) Bundle value-packs are both available for $32.35 MSRP. For more information on these exciting new kits, or to purchase any Gary Fong products, please visit http://www.garyfongestore.com.
