Like opening a Christmas gift only to find it full of socks, we had such high hopes when we first saw this mount that lets you dock your iPhone to your DSLR Ubuntu Android.But sadly, the Flash Dock is a bit of a disappointment.

Sadly, the Flash Dock does none of the above.It can access photos directly from the camera, but you’ll need an Eye-Fi card and a constant wireless connection which will suck your battery life.It can also be used for geo-tagging, but you’ll need a camera that can pull that data from a Bluetooth connection.Or, manually sync location data to your photos at the end of the day.
