iPhone’s front camera is used for making selfies and FaceTime, but the performance and image quality of the front camera is very poor in comparison to the rear cameras. For those looking to take amazing selfies or create their own video content, it has long been possible to use the front camera to see the phone display, or try your luck with the camera on the back and hope everything is okay and framed correctly. Ulanzi released a new product, ST-09 iPhone mount for Apple Watch, designed to address exactly this problem.
Why use iPhone mount?
By using an Apple Watch and ST-09, you can set your smartwatch to ST-09 and dock it to iPhone. The included Apple Watch app can transform your watch face into a real-time viewfinder on the back of your iPhone.
Do you really need it?
It might seem silly to use a smartwatch that costs over $200 tied to your wrist. But if you think about it more, you realize that the iPhone mount solves a problem faced by many beginner vloggers, who rely hugely on their smartphones for all their creative needs: using a selfie camera to film yourself is nearly impossible. The target audience might not be very wide, but ST-09 is a very cheap and simple solution to many problems. Assuming you have an Apple Watch, obviously.
