Future Tech - Ready, steady, shoot

Everyday, more and more people use their smartphones for… well, almost everything. One of the first uses smartphones got – apart from making calls and handling text messages and emails – has been as photo and video cameras. Unfortunatley, most accessories don't take in account the growing size of modern smartphones. Here's where MonoShot comes to be a part of the family.


We rely on the functionality of our smartphones more and more, and the exceptional quality of photos that can now be taken with a smartphone has rendered many cameras obsolete. Getting the perfect shot or video is what many of us strive for, and it can be much more challenging than it sounds. Enter the MonoShot. The MonoShot is an "ultra-portable, custom monopod with attachments for any surface, situation, or device; and includes a hands-free shutter remote". The MonoShot is both convenient and economical.

The MonoShot is built to work with your smartphone or GoPro. The device is compact and can fit into your bag, which makes it handy for an afternoon hike or day at the beach.

MonoShot is ultra durable, according to its creators. Designed out of machined aluminum and hardened steel, the MonoShot was built to shoot in all kinds of terrain.

With the integrated Bluetooth shutter button, this accessory works with all devices, so you can easily take hands free photos and videos.

One of the features MonoShot relies on is the Universal Design that  makes this unique smartphone holder to accommodate all makes and models of smartphones with ease.

And – without a doubt a feature for today – the Selfie Mode allows for the user to mount the video head on the bottom of the MonoShot, and have a Selfie Stick that extends up to 5 ft.

The ideia for MonoShot came to its creator's mind when he was playing golf. "I wanted to film myself so I could practice more effectively. As I was looking for a product that would help, I realized that most solutions were either too small to really get the job done, or they would work well, but were big, expensive, and designed for professional cameras. I thought it would be great if there was a product that could fit in a golf or gym bag, and could expand to take-hands free photos and videos with your smartphone, on any surface. I originally thought this product would only be useful for golf, but the more people I talked to, the more I realized it could be used for just about anything..." – says Zach Cram.

MonoShot is being funded trough Kickstarter.
