KLYP Case For IPHONE 4/4S + ML120 LED Light + POCKET Tripod MKPL120KLYP0 – IPhone® 4/4S | Manfrotto. Apparently that is Manfrotto’s motto on their new iPhone Camera adapter.

The KLYP seems to take aim at the market occupied by Diffcase, the MCam, OWLE Bubo and the Phocus…EXCEPT all of these solutions offer additional lens configurations- the KLYP £24.95 does not. Its basic form (without the Light and micro-tripod) is aimed directly at the DiffCase $34.95, but the Diffcase offers the tripod mount points PLUS the DiffSHADE (kickstand) for which the case was originally built.
(You can buy a three lens kit as an option for the diffcase for $49.95.)
Given that the KLYP is designed for the 4 / 4s and that the iPhone 5 is now shipping I wonder if the market will be there for this product. Don’t get me wrong I like Manfrotto products, I have several of their tripods and some of these same LED lights for my MoJo gear but I think the jury will remain out on this. What do you think?
In other news…..
Ive been using the DiffCAGE lately with both my iPhone and my Sony Nex5n. Its a really nicely machined frame with loads of mount points including metal discs for holding magnetic lenses. I will eventually get around to posting some photos of it in action and a video but Im absolutely crazy busy finalising my presentations for the first Circom Mobile Journalsim course which is next week in Budapest. I won’t be streaming the presentations this time but I might shoot a behind the scenes video and post that up during the week.
