I increasingly find myself using my iPhone’s camera to grab pictures throughout the day. The fact that my iPhone is always with me means that I am able to record the moments of my life in ways never before possible. Instead of thinking to myself “I wish I had a camera with me right now” I simply pull out my iPhone and, within seconds, have the picture ready to save, email or upload to my MobileMe account.
It recently stuck me that, were the iPhone’s camera a bit better than it is, it would also be a great way to capture text and apply OCR (Optical Character Recognition) once uploaded to my Mac. Unfortunately text snapped with the iPhone’s camera is not of the highest resolution. (Understatement!!!) That’s where Griffin’s new Clarifi case comes in.
The Clarifi is not only a case but its “...built-in lens gives your iPhone a boost in camera resolution.”
According to Griffin-
Slide the Clarifi lens into place over the built-in lens of your iPhone. Your macro and close-up shots are instantly finer in detail, more accurate in color. With Clarifi’s lens, your iPhone can image an entire business card with astounding clarity. Slide the lens aside for normal photography. WIthout Clarifi, iPhone requires about 18 inches to focus properly. Slide Clarifi’s lens into place and you can move in to 4 inches for crisp detail and great pictures.
The Clarifi is available from Griffinfor a retail price of $34.99
