Griffin Clarifi

From the front, the Griffin Clarifi looks like a regular black polycarbonate case -- and an attractive sturdy one at that. But on the back is a sliding lens cover, that helps your iPhone take decent macro shots. The case itself does add a little bit of bulk to the iPhone, but it's not that bad.

Sliding lens cover

The Griffin Clarifi has a sliding lens mechanism, so you can slide it out to take wider shots, and slide it back on for close-up ones.

Watch: Before and after

This is a shot of my watch, without and with the close-up lens. As you can see, the fuzzy image improves dramatically.

Magazine text: Before and after

The Griffin Clarifi works especially well with text. As you can see, the shot without the close-up lens looks just a blur of words. With the lens, the text is now legible.

Business card: Before and after

One of the more useful applications of the Griffin Clarifi is that it makes it that much easier to capture business card information and store it on your phone.
