PhoGo Case for iPhone 5 from DiffCase

Life In LoFi has three PhoGo Cases to give away

PhoGo_byDiffStore290pxThe excellent DiffCase Lens Mount was my goto case on my iPhone 4-series phones until I got my iPhone 5. I’ve been using a temporary case waiting until the DiffCase for iPhone 5 was released.

The new PhoGo Case is the completely redesigned case for iPhone 5 from DiffCase. It’s shipping now for $39.95. Keep reading to find out more and how you can win a new PhoGo Case for iPhone 5, the sun shade, and a set of lenses. >>>

PhoGo Case For iPhone 5 Features from Jim Armstrong on Vimeo.

I love my DiffCase Lens Mount for iPhone 4. I still use one on my spare iPhone 4. Not only does it protect my iPhone very well from bumps, scratches and minor drops, but it also has a C-Mount which is designed for both the Gizmon-style macro/wide angle and fisheye lens sets, as well as the iPro lenses from Schneider Optics.

The new PhoGo has been completely redesigned for the iPhone 5. I’ll have a full review in a few days, but here are a few of the features of this new case system:

  • The iPhone snaps in snug to the strong sidewalls of case and there’s no shake at all.
  • When installed in the case, there’s actually a slight air gap between inside of case and back of the iPhone. This air gap helps absorb shock if dropped.
  • Mounts your iPhone to any tripod using standard 1/4-20 fitting
  • This case works great with existing DiffCase lenses, the iPro lenses as well as some others including the Photojojo lenses. The case comes with adapters.
  • With the addition of an optional spacer pad, this new case works perfectly in every way with the newest iPod Touch 5th Gen.
  • This everyday use case is made in USA and has optional leather backs that come from Boston (originating from Italy).

Gone are the tiny pins from previous versions of the DiffCase. The new sun shade simply presses on the case and can shift a bit left-to-right along top of case to help adjust where shadow is being cast on screen as sun moves across the sky. It also doubles as a stand for various iOS devices.

The case itself is a simple-to-use, compact, lightweight one piece snap-case design which replaces the two-piece design of previous DiffCase models.

The PhoGo Case for iPhone 5 retails for $39.95 but is introductory priced at $32 on the DiffCase website. Check it out. It comes in a number of colors and styles and is shipping now.

You can order a PhoGo Case or any other DiffCase product here.

  • Cyrano

    It’s been a long time since I’ve entered one of your drawings Marty, they got too social-media heavy for me to feel I had a realistic chance, but this looks so good I’ll take a shot. Thanks for all the great advice over the years.

    • =M=

      Hi, Cyrano,

      Thank you for your comments and feedback. Actually, that’s something I’d been concerned with and have backed off *a lot* on the social media hijacking. Most giveaways I do now are of the follow-me variety — something many readers already do.

      This one’s a pretty big one, though, so we thought we needed to bring out the Facebook sharing. It’s something I try to use sparingly and more responsibly now.

      Thanks for entering, Cyrano. Good luck!

    This is great news!

    Such a shame it doesn’t have a tripod mount on the bottom for portrait orientation,
    Where can I get a case with tripod mounts there? Didn’t some of Diffcase’s cases had one?

    Been looking for quite a while.

    Any info on this would be much appreciated.

  • Jim Neuner

    This looks awesome. Would love one to demonstrate to the iphoneography class I’m teaching.

    • Maria Erspamer

      Wow. Where do you teach this class?

    I am intrigued by its versatility. Cool.

    Thanks for the chance!

  • rpop

    This looks awesome!

  • I have the original DiffCase – I found it a little bit ‘Fort Knox’ so didn’t really use it. I think this version looks better as its easier to get your phone in there and the external lens attachment is cool.
