    Do you know you can also use the Volume buttons to take pictures?

    Yes I do but it still shakes the camera.

    You can use the volume button in a pair of headphones as well. Either way, this is quite a neat little tool of you need to be far away from your device for somehing like a family photo!

    There's also the 3 or 10 second timer function.

    Buy a 6 Plus and you won't have a need for this.

    Last night I photographed the Wishes fireworks show at Disney. I took around 200 shots. If I would have used the timer it would have taken about 20 photos. When I am photographing fireworks I need the shutter to close the instant I see the shot, not many seconds later.

    I post all my photos from the previous month on the first of the next month. So my November photos will be posted on the first of December. I will be starting a thread about it the same day. I photographed three amazing fireworks shows this week.

    On average, that shakes the camera more than touching screen does, as it takes more effort to depress a physical button that it does to touch a screen.

    I've found that those I've recommended it to, take better pictures because they can hold the phone more securely.

    It doesn't need a separate app and it's the same build quality. That one Is WAY overpriced but to each his own I guess.

    The sheer weight and size of the giant 6 plus eliminates any significant recoil from pressing the volume button. :p

    Just use the volume button on the headphone cord. No shake.
