Trygger iPhone case cuts camera glare with built-in polarizing filter

Trygger's Kickstarter-funded iPhone case has a built-in polarizing lens

Trygger, a Portland-based company, has created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund its new iPhone case. The case has a polarizing filter attached to it which helps users cut down on glare and get more vibrant colors in their photos. Trygger hopes to raise at least $25,000 to get production of the case started.

The polarizing filter built into The Camera Case is made by placing a color neutral polarizing film between two layers of high-grade optical Borosilicate glass. It should give iPhoneographers who take their craft seriously an edge, and unlike some insanely impractical iPhone camera gadgets we’ve seen, this one shouldn’t add too much bulk.

The specs

  • Diameter: 6.35mm +/-0.05mm
  • Thickness: 2.1mm +/-0.05mm
  • Edge blackening added
  • Designed to work with or without flash

The Camera Case is made from 1.88mm of hard polycarbonate finished with a soft-touch paint. It has a felt-lined sliding back and is designed to fit the iPhone 4/4S.

The cases will retail for $49.95 + shipping, but for $35, you can reserve a case today and earn free shipping anywhere in the U.S.
