  • 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?

      Just a little follow-up here: I entered the contest AND I bought one, which has already arrived. (We need 2 in our 2-iPhone...umm..correction..soon to be 3 iPhone household). Anyway, having used several different cases already and particularly liking the incase slider, I REALLY like this Griffin Clarifi case. What I particularly found that I like about it aside from the sliding lens cover, is the 2-tone texture of it. It has the nice shiny black look about it, yet also has the nice sort of rubbery black grip as the other part of it that I really like as I have slippery hands..lol. It just looks really good and goes together well and stays together, yet without being difficult to get apart.

      2 thumbs up from me

      P.S. Oh, I forgot to mention that it also comes with a stick on screen film protector. I can't tell you anything about that as I haven't used it yet. It's intended for my new 3Gs. I only demo'd the case on our 3G for fit and function prior to the arrival of the 3Gs. I've had problems with the edges of film screen protectors coming up at the edges when you slide your phone into a case before, so I tend not to use them. I'll have to see what happens with this one.

      C- If this thing really works as well as the sample shows it should be sweet.

      The case is pretty amazing, but I am having trouble with the screen protector. The tightness of the case is causing the screen protector to bubble around the edges. Sometimes these bubbles can be worked out, but anytime you remove the bottom or hold the phone firmly, the bubbles return.

      The screen included with the case didn't work, and neither did the AirJacket ones. I am trying Zagg Invisible Shield now. Hopefully once that screen sets, there won't be any edge bubbling.

      I had exactly the same issue, I'm still undecided if I want to keep it on and have protection from scratches and live with fingerprints or take the risk but have less fingerprints as I have a 3GS. I'm also not too happy that after a day of careful handling mine looks like it's been in use for about 6 months. There's even a big mark in the side of it that I can't fathom how it happened. It protects the phone though as I did drop it last night and it just left a small mark on the corner of the case. It's still a great case and worh the 15 I paid for it.

      I have the case and have the same issue with the screen protector. What you need to do is to lightly cut the edge that is bubbling up so it doesn't sit under the case anymore. Just hte VERY edge should be enough. Mine bubbled up at the top right corner. I managed to fix the other bubbles without cutting.

      Note that if you mess the screen protector up so it's bent by the case, there is NO fixing it, you need a new protector or cut off the bent part.
