The latest iPhone models do an excellent job of enabling you to capture tripod-steady video clips and blur-free telephoto stills when shooting handheld. This is thanks to OIS (optical image stabilization) hardware which vibrates the sensor in the x, y, and z axis to counteract camera shake. Software is also employed to counteract camera shake - and this is especially effective when shooting in the Camera app’s Action Mode. So if the iPhone is so great at shooting handheld why are we recommending that you buy a camera grip?

The iPhone camera grips and cages in this guide provide various ways to improve your iPhone photography and videography. The iPhone’s smooth glass and metal body can be a bit slippy to hold, especially if you’re panning and tilting to capture a fast-moving subject.
