The iPhone is quickly replacing dedicated point and shoot digital cameras. While the iPhone is capable of taking great pictures, its form factor is probably one of the most uncomfortable for taking photos. This is where a protective case such as the “Snap” by “Bitplay” can convert your awkward-to-hold iPhone into a much more comfortable “camera like” form while at the same time giving your iPhone that retro camera look. This makes taking photos with your iPhone much more natural feeling and definitely increases your iPhone’s coolness by an easy factor of 10.
The Snap case not only makes your photography experience with the iPhone more comfortable, but it also helps you take better photos. The built-in shutter button on the top of the case has a type of piezoelectric device that is activated when pushed. This in turn pushes the on screen shutter button on the iPhone camera app. The user must first rotate the little dial at the bottom of the iPhone screen so it covers the on screen shutter button. The ability to push a nice large shutter button instead of the on screen or tiny volume buttons greatly reduces the amount of user induced camera shake. Another way the Snap case can improve your “iPhotography” is its ability to further stabilize your iPhone during shooting with its built-in metal tripod thread mount. This is an awesome feature in my book as it allows you to directly connect this case (and in turn your iPhone) to any tripod on the market. Whether it’s a cheap tiny tabletop tripod or a super expensive, huge, pro tripod, this case will mount to it.
The Snap case provides fairly decent protection for an iPhone. The plastic seems moderately durable compared to cheaply made cases where the plastic can be quite brittle. The case wraps around to the screen side of the iPhone and provides decent protection for the iPhone screen if set down or dropped screen first onto a flat surface. This is a feature that many iPhone case manufacturers fail to deliver. Another feature the Snap case has is a place to attach a neck or wrist lanyard, which many competing iPhone cases don’t include. The Snap case also comes with an iPhone screen protector, which is yet another component most manufactures refuse to include.
I do, however, wish this case were capable of attaching small wide angle, fisheye and telephoto lenses. That capability would have been the icing on the cake for this product, as there are many iPhone cases out on the market today that offer an interchangeable lens feature but don’t offer some of the features that the Snap has.
All in all, I found that this case provides both protection and usability for fun photography with your iPhone. If you love photography and want to make your iPhone fit your camera motif, then this might just be the perfect case for you.
