Dental photography smartphone lighting with professional studio quality and magnetic quick release. The brightest, softest and easiest to use lighting for your smartphone.
Vu’s Phone Rig diffuses two LED panels to your smartphone to create powerful yet soft lighting for your dental photography. It’s the only patented product on the market that uses a magnetic quick release–no more clamps or screws. VPR has the highest light output of any dental product on the market…it’s bright enough to act as a fill light across a room. The VPR is protected under under U.S. Pat. No. 10,667,696 B1
- Right handed magnets are the default option, because it’s the best setup 99% of the time.
- Left handed magnets are for center mount cameras–iPhone and all similar corner mount cameras (recent Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy Note) are incompatible with the left handed magnet mounts.
- Ambidextrous magnets have mounts on both sides. That allows you to do both lefty or righty phone mounting on the same rig. It does NOT make the retention any stronger, because a phone can only engage one side of magnets at a time. Ambidextrous magnets makes the rig 6 ounces heavier.
- All VPR come with two removable and reversible grips. You can use one, both, or no grips at all. The grips are configured independently of the magnets.
- Small 24mm might travel better but that’s about the only reason I’d pick them.
- Standard 32 mm is the best for most users. Even my small size glove wearing assistant likes the 32mm handles.
- Bluetooth 32mm – these are 32mm handles that have been lengthened and have an embedded bluetooth trigger. This is a more comfortable shooting experience for some, and provides a tactile button. The disposable coin battery may need to be changed every few months. Bluetooth triggers emulate keyboards, and may disable your onscreen keyboard until the remote is shut off. There are unconfirmed reports of bluetooth incompatibility with the Invisalign app. If you come across an incompatible app, shut the bluetooth trigger off. The VPR was designed from the start without the bluetooth, and your thumb should be able to reach the screen regardless.
Color: Black is default and probably the best for most users, and will have the best apparent print appearance. Black is often in stock; allow an additional week for printing time if other colors are ordered. We will photograph a swatch here as time permits. The teal resembles Tiffany Blue. The power. Sky blue is similar to what the Los Angeles Chargers use. In order to keep VPR resilient and resistant to warping in hot cars (we recommend storing them in the trunk, NEVER the interior), we are somewhat limited with the colors we make available. As every VPR is 3d printed, small blemishes are to be expected, and may show more with lighter colors.
Compatible Phones include, but are not limited to:
iPhones : iPhone 6, iPhone 7/7+, iPhone 8/8+, iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs MAX, all iPhone 11’s (Pro, Max, Pro Max, Standard)
Samsung: Galaxy S8, S8+, S9, S9+, S10, S10+, Note 7, Note 8, Note 9
Other Androids: Nokia Pureview 9, OnePlus 7 Pro
What about other phones not listed? Any smartphone’s corner camera that is 80mm width (from left the right) or narrower should fit through the VPR’s main aperture with the default right handed magnet mount. Apple, Huawei, and Google tend to use corner cameras. In left handed magnet mount, a corner mounted phone lens would be on the bottom, so the width of the phone becomes less of an issue. Virtually all center mounted cameras (LG, Samsung, many others) will shoot fine.
What won’t work? The phone (preferably in a smooth TPU case) should have a flat surface to stick the metal plate for magnetic retention. Pop up discs, kickstands, or handles will prevent the smartphone from mounting securely to the VPR.
Compatible tablets: is it compatible with the ipad?
Tablets are not recommended or supported because the overall size and weight would be very large, awkward and heavy. We cannot guarantee adequate retention or patient safety.
Magnetic quick release requires a metal sticker (included with purchase) adhered to your phone case. We recommend simple, flat, TPU cases.
