BlackRapid has a new item to help keep phone shooters from fumbling their phones to an untimely death on an unforgiving sidewalk or over the rail into the briny deep.



Not the Ultimate Answer To Life, The Universe, And Everything*, but a pretty good idea.

A cruise ship is my favorite camera accessory!

Now if only they could come up with something to prevent phone photographers from holding their big fat glowing screens up in the air in my line of sight when I'm trying to see a show! Maybe a little remote screen viewing monocle.

They already do. Poke the back of their knee with a monopod and the view is magically cleared!

Why? So you can stick your big camera up and do the same thing?

Could have used this this past weekend - did that Patriot Fast Boat San Diego Harbor Tour and had a death grip on my phone...

But got some great pics and video!
