The HotShoe 'Flash-Dock' is the perfect piece to attach to the HotShoe socket on a DLSR camera. If a photographer doesn't already have an attached piece there and owns a smartphone, the smartphone can be used as a means for many resources.

The dock is merely there to support the iPhone and doesn't have any other features. However, the ingenious idea to have a smartphone planted atop a DSLR is what drives this product to the top. It will allow photographers to use the smartphone's online capabilities, such as tagging locations and online file-sharing to make photo-sharing quick and efficient. Furthermore, the iPhone is capable of saving images in file formats that can be read by comprehensive editing software. With the use of simple apps or miniature add-ons, the iPhone can become an integral part of one's photo shoot setups.
