COVR Photo Case for iPhone SE Al­lows for Dis­creet Shoot­ing

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE - NEWS -

The iPhone SE has a pair of rea­son­ably pow­er­ful cam­eras, but the act of putting up the phone to your face to com­pose a photo doesn't re­ally al­low for can­did shots. That has changed be­cause the iPhone SE COVR case lets you take pho­tos with your iPhone SE, with­out directly point­ing the cam­era at your sub­ject(s).

How does the COVR Photo case func­tion? The case con­sists of a rigid shell that wraps around the iPhone, along­side a slider that has a prism and lens unit. To use the COVR Photo case, you'll also need an app to in­vert the im­age, so it doesn't ap­pear in­verted on your screen. Speak­ing of the app, it also al­lows you to man­u­ally ad­just the con­trast and bright­ness; has a burst mode; lets you eas­ily share your pictures on so­cial me­dia; has a square cam­era mode, and manual fo­cus­ing abil­i­ties.

If you're won­der­ing why you'd want this case, well, it's rather use­ful for street pho­tog­ra­phy and photo doc­u­men­tary work. The in­ven­tor is ac­tu­ally Thomas Hurst, a pho­to­jour­nal­ist, so he's some­one who def­i­nitely knows the value of tak­ing can­did shots.

The iPhone SE COVR case is avail­able in black (US$29.95, ap­prox. RM121), as well as white, blue and pur­ple (US$24.95, ap­prox. RM101). If you have an iPhone 6 or 6s in­stead, worry not be­cause there are COVR cases for both phones. To learn more or to see the COVR case in ac­tion, you can point your browser to cov­r­photo.com

The COVR Photo case works by putting a prism in front of your iPhone's lens.
