What if the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera had six camera lenses to choose from? You'd get the Shiftcam case


Rugged cases? Check - we have plenty of these to choose from. Six camera lenses? Hold up a second – what is this, and do we actually need it? Well, we think the freedom to switch between real telephoto, wide-angle, fish-eye, and macro lens at any moment sounds pretty freaking great! Why ask seemingly random questions? Because there's a product that offers both these things in a single package!

The Shiftcam Camera Lens Case for the iPhone 7 Plus is seriously rugged and has six built-in switchable lenses. It also has the formidable and intimidating looks of a piece of military equipment. Check it out – that's some Delta Force stuff right there!

The six lens are mounted in four pairs onto a sliding mechanism that lets you switch between them with simple finger flicking. And you won't have to remove the case if you don't want to use them for some reason. Mobile photographers who enjoy experimenting with lens attachments will probably love the convenience.

Moreover, the case is designed with an ergonomic tapered grip in mind, and also comes with a strap attachment. Combined with a shock-proof build, it ought to make the job of carrying your tricked-out iPhone comfortable and secure.

The Shiftcam is being funded via Kickstarter and can be pre-ordered (backed) for around $60 right now. The retail price is set at $99, and shipments are scheduled for August this year. More information is available here.

I'd rather multiple sensors where the image could be stitched together to create a like 60MP image. Then with oversampling, you could take all the good none noisy pixels and create one amazing looking 10MP image, so each pixel essentially has 6 pixels to choose from. This would also offer a 6 x lossless zoom at 10mp or a 10 x lossless zoom at 6mp. This is how I see the future of phone cameras..... that or just stick a massive 1 inch sensor in the back and make a true successor to the Nokia 808 and stop being scared of different form factors. Camera bumps can be Sexy if they're done like how Nokia used to do them, these little nubs we have now are ugly. I'd rather the form factor of the Nokia 808, it's small enough for one handed use and it can be thick because it fits in your palm and you have that natural curvature, your palm isn't flat when holding a phone. Or make the Nokia N93 again, now that was an amazing phone, a flip phone where they used the hinge to put a big optical lens in there.

YUP! Instead of increasing the megapixel count, the SIZE of the sensor needs to be increased. I wish designers would stop trying to make smartphones a "FASHION STATEMENT" for the snobbish hollyWEIRD types. Heck, every photo you see of the so called celeb types, they've got a "stylish" phone clutched in their hands. Can you imagine the kind of image you could achieve from an APS-C sensor, with a 2-10x optical zoom, on a smartphone. Samsung was headed in the right direction with their Galaxy S4 Zoom, but they never developed it further into a PHONE, because they were too much into copying the "stylish" iPhone stuff. Enough with slim and sexy...INNOVATE! Thicker with BIGGER batteries.

I would not mind this for the LG G6. I am starting to make a name for myself with mobile photography with this phone!

I wish either Apple or Samsung would refine and implement Xiaomi's camera with lossless zoom. THAT would be a meaningful upgrade.
