The POPA is an iPhone attachment which turns your phone into a camera

iPhonography is gaining momentum, with more and more people foregoing a traditional camera, and preferring to just use the iPhone as one. Most people don’t feel the need to bother with a digicam anymore. POPA by Beep Industries is an iPhone attachment that lets you take photos by pressing the “big red button.” The idea is to make the iPhone feel more like a sleeker, smaller version of an old school camera. Just push the red button, and you are picture ready in seconds! Push POPA onto your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S and the free POPA app springs to life. POPA’s shiny metal body is surrounded by a real leather grip, underneath is a super-handy tripod mount – great for using with the app’s timer function or for when you need that extra stability. This app lets you Share your photos on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr as well as save to the iPhone’s photo album. It comes with a leather wrist strap that simply screws into the tripod mount and a carry pouch.


The POPA iPhone attachment will cost you around $75. While this may be a little steep for the regular user, professional photographers swear that this attachment makes a visible difference to the feel of the camera, and also helps smooth out any stability issues for those low-light shots.
