The gap between capable cameras and smartphones continues to close quickly, and the Relonch Camera Case would like to be the nail in the coffin. Although we doubt that will be happening anytime soon, this iPhone case has piqued our interest.
The case will slide right over your phone, and using the Lightning port will give you access to an improved APS-C sensor alongside a permanently affixed f/2 lens. The case is designed to work on both the iPhone 5 and the newly released iPhone 6, and it also serves double duty as an external battery pack for your phone – giving you an additional 4 hours of use. According to the brand, you’ll be able to take “fancy photos” that are comparable to magazine quality, and they even went as far as saying,”It would be really hard to make a trashy photo.” The device is aiming for a late 2015 release, and will carry a retail sticker of $499 USD.
