The iPhone’s camera is becoming so good that you can arguably do without a ‘real’ camera these days. Packing a 8 megapixel camera, the iPhone 4S outperforms most point-and-shoot cameras, and it also kicks out some impressive 1080p video.

Unfortunately, your iPhone can’t track your movements, all the while keeping you perfectly framed.

With Swivl, any iPhone can be turned into an auto-tracking camera, and it looks great…

The Swivl mount is available to pre-order now and should be shipping in early 2012 for the price of $159. That will get you the mount which will hold anything with a profile less than 11mm, and a marker. That marker, is where the magic happens.

See, you attach the market to whatever you want the camera to follow, and the base station/mount follows it, keeping it perfectly frames all the while.

The Swivl mount can swivel left and right, as well as tilt up and down for situations when such movement is required.
