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.

    Thanks for this post and sharing the video. I haven’t used a case on any of my iPhones in the past, but I am finding I shoot more with it now than ever. I like the function of this case from protection to wearability. I would love to be a winner, but I will probably buy one even if I’m not. Thanks again for the post.

    iPhone 5S will feature a 13MP camera and a bigger and brighter flash. This is according to the update received on iLounge earlier in the year. This update is a significant step from the 8MP on iPhone 5,
