OWLE adds "BUBO" video grip to the iPhone

If you're enjoying your iPhone 3GS videos, you'll have no doubt found that keeping your hand steady while filming is one of the biggest challenges. A company called OWLE, Optical Widgets For Life Enhancement, has the answer.

It's called the BUBO, and is a video grip and lens system for the handset. It also looks quite a bit like a batarang, we reckon. The idea is that you slot your iPhone into the grip, and then it's easier to keep stable.

It includes a 37mm camcorder lens, as well as a front-facing microphone and the company plans support for external lighting and power.

The BUBO will be entering a limited production run in August, and you can sign up on the website to get a notification of that. If it goes well, then more will be completed by Christmas, costing somewhere between $30 and $50.
