A new plastic accessory gives the device the look and feel of a traditional camera.
Is the age of the digital camera over? The absolute ubiquity of cell phone cams and the fast-improving photographic technology of these devices, compounded with general user laziness, has relegated the desire for single-function cameras to the pros or serious hobbyists.
In an attempt to adapt to this trend, the minds behind UN Design have created an iPhone case that simulates the feel of a real SLR. The two-piece plastic cover has a faux lens that forces you to angle the phone to landscape mode when taking a picture, and an attached strap that positions the iPhone at chest level for maximum photo-snapping ease. The screen of the iPhone remains uncovered so you’re still able to access all the functions, but when taking a photo it feels a little more “authentic.”
