Screw You Apple, The Daptr Case Puts The Audio Jack Back Where It Belongs


Apple, as everyone knows, “courageously” ditched the audio jack in the latest incarnation of the phone that turned the company into the behemoth it is today. That made the purchase of the iPhone 7/7 Plus somewhat of a dilemma for people who like to listen to music while their phone is charging; would it be worth it, knowing you have to also upgrade your headphones or use an unsightly adaptor? Well, the Daptr case attempts to solve this issue by giving you the audio jack back. It does this by lengthening the phone somewhat and cramming it down there along with a Lightning port, so you can keep using the phone the way you want. Oh, and a second Lightning port for some reason. You’ll add just 3mm of thickness, but a hefty 20mm of length to an already long-ish phone. It’s available in December for $49.

Beastgrip Pro Turns Your Smartphone Into A Serious Photography Tool


The sensor packed inside most modern smartphones is pretty decent. It’s not full-frame dSRL decent, sure, but the limiting factor in the quality of smartphone pics these days lies more often in the lack of other features, rather than in the sensor. So the Beastgrip Pro is there to help you up your phone photography skills.

It gives you a stable frame that makes it easier to handle your camera when shooting photos and videos, along with mounts for adding accessories. Plus, it works with almost every smartphone in existence. It comes with five 1/4?-20 UNC mounts for adding tripods, microphones, and other accessories. There’s also a cold shoe mount and a three-axis, adjustable 37mm threaded mount for pairing it with any compatible filters and lenses. In other words, this rig will let you do some serious photography with your phone.

You can also get optional accessories like a wide-angle lens, a fisheye lens, and a DOF attachment for using the BeastGrip Pro with full-sized SLR lenses.

The Beastgrip Pro alone will set you back a relatively modest $139, but of course that’s without any of the accessories. Think of this item as a frame that opens the door to some serious expansion of your phone’s photographing abilities.

The RokPak Keeps Your Stuff Dry, Charged, And Protected


There are times where you’re going to want to go outdoors. We know, it’s weird, but it happens. In those occasions, especially when you’re off the beaten path, you might want to consider putting your delicate electronics in a safer place. The RokPak is a waterproof container that keeps your phone safe, dry, and protected from bumps and scrapes all the while charging it thanks to its 12,000 mAh battery and solar panel. There are two USB outputs, as well as a net to keep your other items away from your phone, like your keys and a few cards.

The RokPak consists first and foremost of a tough waterproof case measuring 9.6 x 5 x 2.8 inches (246 x 128 x 70 millimeters). The case is lined with silicone, which makes a nice soft home for your delicate electronics; the makers told Gizmag that the RokPak can even take a fall from four feet (1.2 m) against a hard surface and still keep things safe. There’s a also a silicone net on one side that holds items in place. The case also floats and insulates against extreme heat (temps up to 176°F/80°C) and extreme cold (-4°F/-20°C).

Additional features include an LED flashlight, as well as an emergency beacon that will flash for up to 200 hours if the case falls in the water, making it easier to find.

You’ll have to pony up a hefty chunk of change to get your own: “you can get the RokPak for the early bird price of US$159. After those are gone, the price climbs to $169, then $179, which represents $50 off the eventual retail price of a whopping $229.”

Deal Of The Day: 16% Off On Peel iPhone 6/6S Case


Apple went so far out of its way to make the newer iPhone thin that it let the back camera stick out a little bit, since it couldn’t cram it in the impossibly slim case, and make it flush. As questionable as this decision was, perhaps you feel that covering your phone in a bulky case kind of defeats the engineers’ “feat”, so a case like the Peel is for you.

The iPhone wasn’t designed to perfection just to be covered by a bulky case. That’s why Peel offers a case that retains the shape and form of your phone, while protecting it from accidental drops.

– Doesn’t add bulk or weight to your phone
– Free of any branding
– Designed to be ultra thin (just 0.35mm thick)
– Perfectly formed to fit your iPhone
– Protects you protruding camera lens w/ a subtle lip

Cases shouldn’t be expensive to start with (you’re paying enough for the phone), but at $24.99 after rebate, we feel the Peel is priced just right. And as usual, shipping is free.

The Lumenati Cinematic Smartcase Turns Your Phone Into A Videography Powerhouse


Combining the modern convenience of an iPhone 6’s touchscreen, high-density optical sensor, and sharing capabilities with the old-school cachet, ergonomic form factor, and coolness of a retro lo-fi camera, the Lumenati Smartcase could quickly become the hipster’s favourite method of capturing video.

Cinematographers simply pop their device into the Lumenati CS1 just as grandpa would load an 8mm film cartridge. The lightweight, portable unit allows anyone to frame and film a steady, stable shot with the pull of an intuitive trigger. A cold shoe allows filmmakers to attach lights, microphones and extra handles for sport shooting. The real-time viewfinder allows WYSIWYG capabilities even in bright light, a feature that is elusive to modern mobile devices. Lenses can be swapped to shoot in wide angle, fisheye and telephoto.

The Lumenati CS1 uses an optical-quality glass lensing system. Our lenses range from wide angle to telephoto and deliver crisp stunning images. The lenses are designed for high resolution HD cameras and when paired with the CS1 create the perfect look for any occasion. Standard 58mm interchangeable lensing provides even more versatility with available super wide and fish eye lenses.

If it works as advertised, the Lumenati could be a fun way to capture footage. It’s a $200 to get your own, which comes with a wide-angle lens.
