This trick is a great principle. With the right routine This trick is mind blowing.
being said, they are ripping us off. This is a three dollar gimmick sold for $30 which is why I took
off two stars, Also, the presentations on this DVD are not very well thought out. If you're a good
magician you can easily find a way to set this up without making it look " weird".
perform this trick with just the selfie it's really easy to figure out. But, what they don't show
you on the DVD is that you can turn their phone on using the gimmick. Also, it is shown on the DVD
but not emphasized that you can turn their volume up using this gimmick also. Using these three
things you can create a great routine by having them think about turning their phone on, think about
turning your volume up, and then taking a picture of them selves. Then, what they don't come over
is the cleanup. A simple clean up, without giving too much away, is just doing it when you add a
filter on to the photo.. I believe with all of these things put together this is a really strong
effect and it won't hurt to have it in your repertoire.

I'm pretty up set about this one. I have magic in the junk drawer and have never made a complaint
but these people ripped off someone else product and sell if off for 10 times the amount. When I
found out that this is not their own gimmick I got upset.
The concept is genius, but its
I did not learn of this until I purchased it. I pulled off with a great
story and seconds later the girl's friend says, look I can do that too, pulled out what I thought to
be a made gimmick and showed me where I can purchase it for $3.oo dollars on amazon
is about the presentation and the story used to draw them in. I would not have left a review if they
would have had something with it, but they don't.
This is like you buying a gimmick from
here and selling it off with a video as if it is your creation.
What they say is incorrect
"Without the screen or any buttons being touched, the phone snaps the picture all by itself! The
photo is in their library as a permanent souvenir!"
False. just know that.
sale something like it is your own.

This is a nice trick and you can do it in some situation... but you have to touch the spectator
phone. So you can do it if he go to the toilet (if you are in a pub/restaurant) or if you have an
excuse to use his phone for 30-40 seconds without suspects.
This have to be mentioned in
description. So one star for this, i don't like lies in magic description.
It is a good trick, but a little misleading in the add about "never" touching the spectators phone
and yes the price is a little high for a cheaper gimmick you may find on amazon after knowing the
secret but A.) Your paying for the method B.) Half the tricks out there don't use an item 100% brand
new never before seen gimmick, most are common things turned into masterpieces. With the right
presentation this can be one. It can go really well after properly using something like iBalance by
Mark Elsdon or Andrew Mayne's Ghost Vision( little old but still good) for the spooky aspect of a
helping ghost or Fate by Geraint Clarke for the music and volume part of the gimmick, or even Luke
Dancy's Capture to get into why you want to borrow their phone in the first place, hell any trick
that lets you borrow their phone for a trick first and there are TONS here on penguin. But in
honesty this IS NOT something for a beginner, you need to know how to properly misdirect your
audience. But I do find doing another trick with their phone first helps.
Despite other bad reviews, I think this trick is fantastic and definitely suits 21st century modern
day people. Though the trick may be good, the method they teach you on the DVD is really poor and
sounds dodgy. If you have a variety of tricks you perform, you will easily be able to come up with
a good routine with this trick. Another down side is the price for the trick overall. The
DVD/method isn't very good at all and the gimmick can be bought cheaply. Though, most of what the
description of the trick says is quite true, the spectators camera DOES take a selfie without you
touching it (though with a little setup in the beginning first)
I took the plunge and ooh lord was did a mistake?
i thought it was something different, hey
they are selling in on penguin but no... it is exactly what you think it is
also "you never
touch spectator´s phone" is false advertising.. i hate when magicians do that.
well pandrea you
made a quick buck and ruin your reputation, ill never buy your stuff again.
