Covr Photo case
Perfect way to get candid street photos with your iPhone
Here at ProCamera we’re always on the look out for products that enable photographers to take better photos with their iPhone. The new Covr iPhone case does exactly that by helping street shooters remain discreet so they can capture natural, candid street photographs.
Created by award winning photojournalist Thomas Hurst, the Covr case has a built-in lens that slides to change the viewing direction. Now you can hold the phone flat in your hand and shoot what’s in front of you. No more lifting the phone and giving away that your trying to take a picture.
We contacted Thomas about the Covr lens and were surprised to find out that he’d already been testing it ProCamera 7! He said that it helped him with control over the exposure levels when shooting. He also kindly sent through a screencap of what it looks like to currently shoot through Covr with the app (below). You can see that Thomas is using the Square aspect ratio and Live Data to help him shoot. You can also see that the lens currently flips the image upside down on ProCamera 7. Note* We are currently talking to Thomas and the Covr team about how we can add support (flip the image) for the case into the app.
Head over to the Kickstarter page to support the project. You can get your hands on one for US$55.
