I could probably go on at length describing the things I love about my iPhone. However, you’ve probably heard enough about it over the last year and a half, so I won’t bore you. No doubt you already know that one of the shortcomings of the phone is its camera. Even the later 3G model takes equally poor snapshots. I’ve seen a few different goofy-looking attachments that promise to help in one way or another, but in the end they just don’t seem practical for use. I mean, who wants to carry around a tiny lens for their phone? At least Griffin seems to have the right idea with their Clarifi case.
Instead of offering some sort of clip-on attachment for your phone that won’t work with a protective case, they built a macro lens right into their own case. Sure, you aren’t always going to want to take close-up pictures, so they positioned the lens on a slider which can easily be engaged when needed. When you’re done, just slide it back over. You would probably pay $25 for a standalone lens attachment, however, for this price you’re getting an entire case as well. Not a bad deal at all.
