iPhone 5 polarizing filter attachment promises better photos, reduces glare
We've already seen a multitude of iPhone camera add-ons, such as the iZZi orbit, which adds fish-eye effects and optical zoom, or this little optical device that magically grants the phone's snapper with surface 3D scanning abilities. The Trygger iPhone 5 Clip, however, is a bit different.

Yes, it may also be a lens attachment for the iPhone 5, just like the aforementioned accessories, but what sets it apart is that it comes with a polarizing filter. It is a color neutral filter, to be more specific, sandwiched between two pieces of high quality scratch-resistant glass. That's the kind of tech professionals use to block out unwanted glare, such as the light reflections you get off a glass window.

With the Trygger in place, your iPhone photos will have better contrast and more natural colors without the need to use software to manipulate them. It should take care of that nasty purple tint that you get under certain conditions, which is also more than welcome. 

But before you get your hands on one of these and start snapping, you'll have to visit the project's Kickstarter page and pledge to it. A Trygger can be pre-ordered for $30 and should ship by February of 2013, as long as enough funding is raised. About $1,700 have been collected out of the $10,000 goal, with 37 more days to go until the deadline is reached. Any takers?

How does a polarizing filter cut lens flare? Glare is not flare. The only thing that cuts lens flare in the DSLR (film SLRs too, but that is another matter) world is a lens hood. Why is the iP5 different?

It comes from a company called Apple. The can change the law of physic if they want too. I heard they are preparing to sue the haven, for what I do not know. I also heard that Chuck Norris works for this company. So go figure.

OR apple could've put out a decent camera with the phone. Bare minimum they should've said "sorry, we f*cked up" and replaced the phones with cameras that work properly. But since apple will NEVER admit to f*cking up, it's up to the consumer to spend yet another $30 to make their phone work properly.
