MacWorld ’11: DryCASE lets you shoot underwater with iPhone

There were tons of iPhone cases at MacWorld this year.  TONS!  That said, a few cases really stood out because they offered additional functionality.  Here’s a perfect example:

The DryCASE lets you take your iPhone underwater!  So the next time a great white shark is torpedoing in your direction, you can shoot some awesome iPhone video!  That will come in handy when the coroner’s office is trying to identify your body.

Shark attacks aside, the $39.99 DryCASE looks like a pretty nifty addition to any mobile filmmaker’s bag of tricks!

The New GLIF tripod mount looks awesome!

UPDATE – MAY 30, 2017: Having successfully wrapped up its Kickstarter campaign, the GLIF is now available for purchase directly from the Studio Neat website! The GLIF will run you $28, while the full set with hand grip and wrist strap will set you back $55. The GLIF, one of the first iPhone camera accessories is still one of the best. And it’s about to get even better! Just in case you’ve been avoiding every article ever written about mobile filmmaking, the GLIF is a pocket-sized tripod mount for your iPhone.

  1. Darn. Was hoping the video included some footage actually shot through the case to see the quality looking through that plastic.

  2. Hi YodaMac,

    I’m hoping to get a review unit for that very purpose. I’d love to know if the plastic warps or discolors the video. There was some sample footage playing at their MacWorld booth, and it looked pretty decent…but I’d rather test it myself.
