The Beastgrip, created by Vadym Chalenko, a graphic designer and photo enthusiast from Chicago, the USA, is a device that lets you bring the effectiveness of a professional camera closer to your Android, iPhone or Windows phone. He achieved this by enabling you to enhance your smartphone camera by using SLR lenses and various other accessories with it.

The Beastgrip has been called a “universal/adjustable lens adapter and rig system for most camera phones” and it, in fact, gives you the opportunity to fasten loads of various camera enhancing gear. But this gear is not special in any way. It includes all the things that you would normally use with a conventional professional camera.

Most smartphones can be enhanced using the Beastgrip. Apart from improving the camera by attaching lenses, it also enables you to use the attributes like standard quarter-inch threaded mounts and a cold-shoe for tripods, fisheye, wide-angle, telephoto among others.

However, the Beastgrip is not available just yet. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, the first to lay hands on it will be the supporters and this no sooner than February 2014. However, the mere fact that you get the chance to significantly improve your phone camera makes it worth the wait, we believe.
