Add a Polarizing Filter to Your iPhone 4/4S with the Trygger Camera Case


This is another Kickstarter project, and this one has exceeded funding goals before the end of the funding period.  The Trygger Camera Case is a bumper-style case that includes a felt-lined sliding panel on the back of the phone.  Slide the panel up to move the polarizing filter (a color-neutral polarizing film layered between two pieces of high-grade optical borosilicate glass) over the iPhone 4/4S camera lens.  The filter can be “dialed” to adjust the amount of light allowed to pass through to reduce the amount of glare and reflection necessary to produce a better picture.  There are still 13 days left in the funding period (as of this writing), so you still have you chance to pledge $40 for a Trygger Camera Case in your choice of black, white, pollen, azelea, or a backer’s color choice.  Shipping is expected this summer.

    Hi, this is Joel Kamerman from Trygger. Thank you for the article. We expect to ship the Trygger Camera Case summer 2012 not July 2012. Thank you.

    @Joel Kamerman You may want to update your Kickstarter page, as every pledge level shows “Jul 2012″ as the delivery date. The FAQs at the bottom also say early July 2012.

    As someone who shoots with a dSLR, the polarizing filter is one thing that gets overlooked by a LOT of people when shooting landscape scenes during the day. You can DRASTICALLY improve the contrast & color by adding one of these to a regular camera.
    This idea with the camera case is one of those “duh, why didn’t I think of that” ideas. Kuddos!

    @p51d007 – Not only DSLR shooters, some P&S will let you run a CPL as well….you can even run it on a Go Pro Hero2 ….watch this space :)

    Cool! Didn’t know they had CPL’s for P&S cameras. Been a few years since I’ve played with those. LOL, once you go dSLR, kind of hard to go back ;)
