  • Griffin Clarifi for iPhone 3G - Fulfill Your Photography Needs! (Giveaway Ended!)

    Griffin has been one of the biggest accessory makers for Apple products, offering a great selection of cases and other products. I got a chance to try the Clarifi - and I must say, the guys do their job very well!

    The Griffin Clarifi is a classy looking two piece case - like most of the Incase sliders. The bottom portion is removable to easily dock the phone. The back is half matte and half glossy which gives a nice touch to the overall design as well.

    But the Clarifi is not just another iPhone case. Not only does it protect your iPhone from scratches, it also has a great camera enhancement feature built-in. Once you slide on the camera lens "cover", your macro and close-up shots becomes much more crisp due to the extra lens built onto the slider - meant for the very purpose.In addition, when not in use, you can simply cover the iPhone's lens with the slider. Per the company's claim, the normal iPhone has a focal length of 18-inches - but with the Clarifi on, it gets reduced to just 4-inches giving really great close-up shots. And this is not just their claim - I've tested the case myself and the results turned out to be really good!

    Don't believe me? Judge for yourself by having a look at the pictures below!

    Without the extra lens:

    With the extra lens:

    I DO recommend it to all those who do use their iPhone's camera at all. For those who go with professional ware and want just a case for protection, this might not be your type. You can get the case from Griffin directly for $34.99. Or, if you really like one but don't have some extra bucks to spend, why not try your luck in our contest below?

      I've heard mixed reviews about this case. Several people across different sites have said that the slider mechanism for the lense can leave deep marks in the casing.

      Anyone got one?

      I have had one of these for LONG time. You can buy them on ThinkGeek for 24.99. The case works really well to magnify the camera, but the lens gets REALLY DIRTY and the sliding area around the lens gets extremely dirty. Don't use acetone to clean it either, it melts it.
