Fjorden Grip

The Fjorden camera grip manufactured by Fjorden Electra can be used to control ProCamera on your iPhone or iPad.


How to pair the Fjorden Grip with ProCamera?

  1. Turn on the Grip by pressing the physical Shutter Button. The status LED on the back of the Grip will begin to blink.
  2. Open ProCamera and go to Settings > Fjorden Grip. On this settings page, turn on the “Enable connection” switch.
  3. Grant ProCamera permission to use Bluetooth. This is necessary for establishing a wireless connection between the Grip and your iPhone or iPad.
  4. Once your Grip shows up under “Grips Nearby”, ProCamera will auto-connect to it.

If the Grip does not show up in ProCamera, it might be paired with another device and needs to be unpaired first. Alternatively, you can perform a reset as described below and pair the Grip again with your iPhone.


How to turn on the Fjorden Grip?

To activate the Grip, simply press the Shutter Button. The Status LED will light up for a few seconds. If the Grip has been previously paired with your device, it will automatically connect when turned on. You can always check the connection via ProCamera Settings > Fjorden Grip.

The Grip will stay on while ProCamera is open on your iPhone. If you exit ProCamera, the Grip automatically enters stand-by mode after 5 minutes of inactivity.


How to reset the Fjorden Grip?

If you want to un-pair your Grip from your iPhone or iPad and pair it with another device just press both the Shutter Button and Function Button for 5 seconds, until the Status LED starts to blink. Afterwards, start the pairing process again as described above.


How to control ProCamera with the Fjorden Grip?


Half-press the Shutter Button to lock focus and exposure (except for Video mode).
Full-press the Shutter Button to capture a photo. After the capture, everything is unlocked again.
To adjust focus and exposure, tap anywhere on the Viewfinder.


To use the wheel of the Fjorden Grip for controlling the camera, you must first make sure that a dial is visible in ProCamera. On the ProCamera capture screen, tap the EV icon on the top bar to activate the EV dial. Then, you can use the wheel to control the EV dial. 



Additionally, focus peaking and exposure warnings function when adjusting focus and exposure via the Fjorden Grip wheel.

Use the lever on the back of the Grip to zoom in and out. Quickly push the lever left/right to switch lenses instead of zooming (if more than one lens is available).



Press the Function Button to trigger ProCamera's Second Shutter. In ProCamera's Control Panel, you can assign Self-Timer, Anti-Shake or QuadShot as you 2nd Shutter function.
