Product Review: The Glif

Every now and then we're going to be filming fun little videos that review and demo interesting products being sold through Shopify. This week we're taking a look at The Glif, which is a simple and elegant tripod mount and stand for the iPhone 4. 

The Glif was invented by two smart designers in NYC (Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost) and was funded through Kickstarter. Watch Brian from Shopify take The Glif for a spin:


If you're interested how Tom and Dan took The Glif from idea to production, there's a great article on TechCrunch that details the entire process

    Good idea to start doing product reviews. I have the glif and it’s awesome. Suggestion: use a room with less echo to make the product review videos.

    Hey Rob,

    Thanks for the feedback – we’ll look into finding a less echoey space for the next ones!

    I could try talking softer… but I’m not sure I’m capable of doing that :-)

    “Thanks for the feedback – we’ll look into finding a less echoey space for the next ones!”

    Or get yourself a lapel microphone. Great review anyway!

    Rob & Dan: Good suggestion! We’ve already taped a few product review videos that I’ll be uploading in the coming weeks, but for the next batch I’ll be sure to up the sound quality! :-)

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    This is great Brian and Mark, very good idea but…

    How do you choose the products to review?
