Film cartridge hides a remote shutter

From Gizmon, the same folks who brought us the quirky iCA case, comes an iPhone remote shutter release that looks like an old 35mm film cartridge.

Gizmon remote shutter

Picture eliminating camera shake with what looks like an old film canister. Japanese brand Gizmon, which brought us the quirky iCA case , has released a remote shutter that looks like a used roll of 35mm film.

Hidden within the "film cartridge" is a retractable cable that plugs into the headphone jack of any iOS device, with a button on top of the canister acting as the shutter button. This makes the remote shutter useful for long-exposure shots or even self-portraits. The button can also be used to start or stop video recordings.

Thankfully, you won't need to download any apps to use the remote shutter (unlike the Belkin LiveAction remote), and it's compatible with most major camera apps on iOS.

However, it's a pity that this nifty device isn't compatible with non-Apple devices, such as the Lumia line of handsets and popular Android smartphones.

If you'd like to "switch" up the way you snap photos, the Gizmon iCA remote shutter is available in red, yellow, or green from Photojojo. It costs $23.
