Element Case and Schneider Optics have teamed up on one of Element Cases’s newest 2015 offerings, the iPro 6. The iPro 6 is a finely crafted case which adds interchangeable Macro, Wide Angle, Super Wide, Fisheye, and Telephoto lenses for a higher level of mobile photography. There are other products on the market like OlloClip and a few others that offer clip on lenses for your iPhone but with Schneider Optics behind the glass of the iPro 6, that brings it up a notch.
The components are designed to work together. The lenses use a bayonet mount to securely fasten onto the custom Element Case iPhone case. The case also gives users the option of attaching the handle on the left or right side of the iPhone. What’s more, the handle itself enables the phone to be attached to a tripod. We didn’t get any hands on time with it at CES 2015 but we did manage to get some pics, check them out below.
Optimized for both still and video images, the iPro Lens System offers a choice of 5 precision-made, genuine Century lenses, designed by the same team who are known worldwide for quality television and motion picture optics. Lenses available for the kit include: Wide Angle, which increases the iPhones field-of-view by 35 percent; Telephoto, which narrows the iPhone’s field-of-view by half, bringing objects closer; and Fisheye, which alters the field of view by a dramatic 165° for everything from panoramas to action sports shots. Superwide and Macro lenses are also available.
The iPro 6 will be available first half of 2015 in black with pricing not yet announced. Element Case is a premium case maker and Schneider Optics is a premium optics company so don’t expect this to be under $100. It’s likely going to run higher than that but from experience, Element Case products are well worth the coin. Keep an eye on the Element Case website for news on the iPro 6 release!
