COVR Photo Case for iPhone SE Allows for Discreet Shooting
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.
