    I’ve owned iPhones ever since the first one and have always wondered why, on a phone with such great cameras, Apple never gave us a dedicated, two stage shuttle release button. Nokia did it and Sony does it, why not Apple?

    For those of us with hand tremors, just holding on to these new, all glass works of art is a challenge. Add to that, having to hold the phone by its edges and find a virtual shutter release with a trembling thumb and you have a recipe for at least lousy blurred photos and maybe a dropped phone.

    While I have a more capable camera in my iPhone, I take pictures with a travel camera. That’s one more bit of kit I have to take along, when I travel. The camera doesn’t take up much room but I shouldn’t have to take it.

    A shutter button would be nice. Using only the phone though you’d have to hold on your subject on the screen to lock focus then press the volume button for shutter. However there is a company called Moment, they sell camera lenses for around $100 each for iPhone. They also have a case that does have a dedicated two stage shutter button with a familiar camera grip as well.

    With FaceID it should be possible to take pictures by blinking your eyes, making a mouth gesture, you know the sky is the limit here!
