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.

4 things Android phones still do better than the iPhone 15
Clockwise from top: natural titanium iPhone 15 Pro, Nothing Phone 2, green iPhone 15, and Obsidian Black Google Pixel Fold.

The Apple iPhone 15 lineup is here, which includes the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The Dynamic Island and USB-C are now available across the lineup, the standard models get a big camera boost to 48MP, the Pros get the new Action button, and the Pro Max even has a fancy new tetraprism telephoto lens for 5x optical zoom.

While all of this sounds impressive, Apple’s iPhone lineup is still behind the competition. Android phones have had some of these features for a while now — and even do some things a lot better.

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro models are finally here. The entire iPhone 15 lineup has Dynamic Island and USB-C. With the standard iPhone 15, you get the A16 Bionic that was introduced last year, and the iPhone 15 Pro models get the new A17 Pro chip and Action button. And if you opt for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, you also get the brand new tetraprism telephoto lens for 5x optical zoom capabilities.

While the new hardware changes are nice, Apple also has some new software features that are exclusive to the iPhone 15 lineup. One of these is the new Auto Portrait mode, and as a parent of a very active toddler, this is one of the most exciting things for me about the entire iPhone 15 lineup.
