    I want to self record using the back camera on my iphone 5... because its 1080 instead of using the front facing one....

    When I use a mirror I can't really see myself as I am talking and such. I want something that will let me see myself the entire time I am recording to see how I look and fit in the frame etc....

    All I can find online is this http://www.isnapme.com/ which is a mirror you snap on the back of your phone? Would this work and is there anything else besides this that I can use?

    Keep in mind that I will also be using a tripod too so I can't use Vainworks (another mirror type deal but shaped like a stand so it won't work on a tripod).

    Thanks.

    Don't want to overload you with technical details, but this little wonder came out a few years back:

    I almost thought that word was normal here until I realized I wasn't on Reddit

    Short of dismantling your iPhone? No. What about using Airplay mirroring? Haven't tried it myself to verify if it would work.

    Put a mirror in front of your iPhone while you do it.
