Typical Sansminds BS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2016
This is ok, but Morgan acts like everyone you perform for is going to be a moron, which is 1 of only 2 options for this to work (the second option being that your audience is drunk beyond recognition). It could work if you mix it in with City Prediction and iCurveball so that you have more time to cleanup, (he says 99% of people don't know about their deleted photos folder, which is total crap, you will need to clean up after that) but overall basic concept. I knew this is what I was buying, and I gained one tip to use that I may not have immediately figured out on my own, but if you think you know how this works, you're probably right. Not for the beginner, audience management skill required.

Last thing: Don't let the spectator's friend take the photo. The bottom left corner of the camera app shows the last thing taken and they will see that more often than not.

Disappointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 22nd, 2016
In a word: disapointed. If you're willing to do xxx and yyy, covertly, and also do zzz, this might work. But there are angle and practice issues, and then you may, may get this right. Just kind of impractical, at least in my mind. I thought it had potential but like other Sans Mind products, the video doesn't show the real story.

over priced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2016
i just recieved this in the mail yesterday and i have to say , i was a little disappointed. no reason this couldnt have been half the price and an instant download. waste of money on all the packaging. i tried it with two family members and both attempts failed. ive been a magician for over 30 years and this was a major disappointment. not worth the money, if anything it should be a free download.

It sucks Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 27th, 2016
Where do I start? You have someone's phone for a while and talk a lot while holding their phone. And that could cause problems because how long would you let a stranger hold your phone for? In this, Morgan says you have to build a rapport with your audience, and that's true you do. The second thing the picture where you're gone the spectator may have smiled when the photo was taken and if that's the case this will ruin the effect because they may notice.
Let's say you take the photo with the magician and the spectator smiles in the picture, then later on she looks and there she is with no smile and the magician is gone. It seems strange to me. Or if the spectator makes a pose or something then this effect won't work. Also the background may not be the same. Some people you might be able to pull it off with. But I really think this trick sucks and I won't ever be using it. It's crap that gets put away in the drawer.

Average iphone trick... not worth 20. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2016
took one for the team and bought the instant download... as most sansminds tricks, this was overall disappointing. i was pretty sure on the method, and i was totally correct. while there are some great pointers on handling and presentation, i just think this effect would never work on someone in their 20s-30s which i mainly work with. there are cooler iphone effects using Pano mode, etc, and i just can't recommend this at its 20 dollar price point.

lot of practice and must perform at a certain place... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2016
The presentation was very well explained; however, watching the trailer was kind of misleading even though watching the explanation, and performing it requires a lot of practice, by getting use to the grip of the phone, and standing to a certain spot in order to take an accurate photo.

The main advantage for this trick is the background and people often tend to observe the picture carefully and memorizing the parts in the picture which I usually don't like for them to do. For myself, I highly recommend performing this trick to where that there isn't any cluttering meaning lot of crowds, and lots of things shouldn't be there in the back. I usually perform this to where the background is blank and few crowds (Of course with no crowds would be better!). Likewise, with a plenty of practice, you should try taking the photo as best as you can that way no one will be questioning and ruining it.

Speaking of their face expression when they're smiling or making silly/duck faces while taking a picture with the spectator is also important when it comes time to reveal the photo at the end of the trick. When people essentially does that, I tend to tell them to keep they're faces relaxed/normal (Which is kind of rude to them) that way they will not see any changes from their faces. It's best not to take pictures with duck faces or smiles.

I only gave 3 stars for this trick because of the fact that I gave two of my opinions.

Don't own an iPhone so nothing to practice with. My Galaxy does not have the quick setting buttons like the iPhone demo.Nice concept for iPhone users but not for droid.

Really!!!! I paid for this Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 8th, 2016
Sans minds as of late have pretty much been the lowest of lows when it comes to magic. The trailers for some of their effects look incredible but in real life after you purchase it it is nothing like it was demonstrated. Then comes Morgan, whom his videos and tricks in the past were very good. His bending routines are top notch. What do you get when they combine????? A piece of junk. After purchasing this and watching it a few times, I know that there is no way this fools anyone. It would have been nice if there was some type of gimmick (ie Andrew Maynes Ghost Vision which is awesome and fools people) to accomplish the desired effect. I am mortified that Morgan will be releasing all his future effects with Sans Minds --uugg. I hope this release is no indication of the things to come. If you do buy this you, like I will say REALLY!!!! I paid for this??? Even as a free download you would say Really!!! I am wasting space on my hard drive for this!!!

Creative but not practical Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 6th, 2016
I gave it two stars for being creative and in the live performance on the dvd, Morgan shows himself doing all the dirty work to accomplish the trick. Why I did not give it any more stars is because there are too many holes in trying to accomplish this. Number one is that nobody knows how to manipulate all the different phones out there. He does it with an IPhone but where is the silence button on a LG blah blah blah? In order to do the dirty work, you have to be familiar with the phone. Number two, the people will have to either be drunk or dumb to not see that you are showing two different shots of them. It might fly for some but others will be wondering why their smile or silly face is also gone along with you. Sorry, but creative is all this is.

Not like in the description Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 5th, 2016
There is "works on any brand" which is not true because only iPhones have this turn volume off button. Furthermore, only iPhones can take pictures without passcode, so there are two reasons the spectators phone has to be an iPhone....
