Slap a filter on the iPhone 11’s triple camera with PolarPro’s unique system

The iPhone 11 may have three camera lenses, but PolarPro’s new system allows the camera to use a single filter to cover all three. Announced on February 18, the PolarPro LiteChaser Pro is a case and filter system for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max.

The filters use a quick-mount system to cover the iPhone 11’s array of lenses. The filter system will launch with three filters that are the most common types of filters used on DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. The circular polarizing (CP) filter fights reflection and haze (or in some cases, can be used to exaggerate a reflection). For filmmakers, the variable neutral density filter (VND) reduces the amount of light coming through the lens by a three- to five-stop range without swapping filters. The ND8 reduces light by three stops and the ND64 does so by six stops, in separate filters.

All of the iPhone 11 filters are designed with cinema-grade glass and include a filter cover.

The filters mount to the smartphone using the Litechaser Pro case, a compact case with an aluminum filter mount. Designed with a rubber interior and reinforced frame, the case is also small enough to mount on a drone, the company says.

The optional Litechaser Pro grip works with the case, sitting on a rail system to allow the grip to be adjusted for different hand sizes and to accommodate both vertical and portrait orientations. Both the top and bottom of the grip include thread mounts, allowing the grip to mount to a tripod at the bottom and to accessories like mics and lights at the top.

PolarPro says the filter system helps bring mobile photographers and videographers closer to a complete advanced system. “Since the launch of Apple’s iPhone 11 in September 2019, the goal was to develop a complete creative system worthy of replacing your DSLR/mirrorless camera and help transform your iPhone 11 into the ‘A’ camera,” Jeff Overall, founder and CEO of PolarPro, said.

The Litechaser Pro is available in different kit configurations. The essential kit includes the case and grip for $59 at limited launch pricing. The filmmaking kit adds the variable ND for $119, while the photography kit includes the case, grip and circular polarizer for $99. Filters are also available separately. Pre-orders are available beginning today, with the first shipment slated for the end of March. Prices increase by $10 to $30 after pre-orders.

The iPhone 16 rumor mill will almost certainly pick up speed now that we’re just three months away from the expected reveal. The lastest information isn’t so much news as confirmation of one of the changes coming to the top-of-the-line iPhone 16 Pro Max.

Similar to previous rumors IceUniverse, says Apple’s iPhone 16 Pro Max will feature the world’s thinnest smartphone bezels. Thinner bezels make sense when considering another long-running iPhone rumor: the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max are expected to offer bigger displays. Where the iPhone 16 Pro should see its display jump from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inches versus the iPhone 15 Pro, the one on the iPhone 16 Pro Max is likely to increasefrom 6.7-inches on the iPhone 15 Pro Max to 6.9 inches.

Imagine paying a minimum of $999 for a new iPhone 14 Pro in 2022, only to discover that it can’t run the full iOS 18 experience in less than two years. It might sound dystopian, especially for a product known for its long shelf life that's largely the result of an industry-leading software update policy at Apple.

Yet, it seems that nightmarish surprise will be here in just over a week. Bloomberg recently reported on some crucial AI-driven features coming to iOS 18, with Siri being one of the main recipients of all that innovation. But iPhone users might have to pay a pretty price for it all.
