Your Apple ear buds with remote can also serve as a cable release for the iPhone. I've just tested this with my iPhone 4S, and it works great.
Plug your ear buds into the iPhone, launch the camera app, steady the shot using your favorite stand or tripod, then squeeze the remote button on the ear buds. Your iPhone will take shot, steady as a rock. And the best part is, the cable release comes included in the box.
This tip is great for long exposures, HDR, etc. Give it a try!
Thanks so much to TDS Member, William St. John, for alerting me to this ultra cool tip.
