3 Top iPhone Cases for Mobile Photography

Invest in the best case for your phone

The iPhone remains king for mobile photography (for right now, the Samsung S10 is making a run at first place). Your iPhone is an investment you should protect to the best of your ability. Cases are one of the ways to do this. Not all cases are conducive to doing so. Many times, cases actually get in the way of photographic purposes.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but people within the mobile photography community provided their top three cases. These choices are based on the quality of the case, how accessible it makes the phone, and the aesthetics.

Moment Cases

Moment Case


What We Like
  • Durable.

  • Lightweight.

  • Compatible with lenses and other accessories.

What We Don't Like
  • Lens connection may become loose after lengthy usage.

  • Button can be hard to press.

  • Difficult to clean light colored case.

Moment is one of the premier lens makers for mobile photography. It became well-known by enlisting ambassadors who are impressive image creators with clout on Instagram and other photo social networks.

The cases come in three styles: black, walnut, and white. The case lets your phone feel more like a traditional camera. It has a slight grip for you to hold and also has a traditional shutter button. The case also has a built-in lens interface to match with their lenses. If that is not enough, it also gives you a wrist strap. 

The lenses use a locking mechanism to secure the lens. This allows you to not worry about any lens detachment. Just twist and lock and your phone is ready to shoot. 

Mophie Cases

Mophie Cases


What We Like

  • Aesthetically pleasing.

What We Don't Like
  • Audio pass through is not supported.

  • Finicky wireless charging.

  • Doesn't provide a full charge.

Next up is not a lens kit but a case that lends to shooters who use the iPhone lens as their primary. The Mophie case is a must-have if you are an avid shooter. Too many people go out shooting and totally don't prepare for the loss of battery life. 

There are 6 cases for you to decide upon; the Juice Pack Reserve, Juice Pack Air, Juice Pack Plus, Juice Pack H2Pro, Juice Pack Ultra, and the Space Pack. The cases ranged from $59.95 to $149.95 at the time of this article's writing. Each case has its own unique qualities, from the basic battery charger to extra battery life and extra storage space. 

Ztylus Cases

What We Like
  • Excellent modular system.

  • Versatile.

  • Protective.

What We Don't Like
  • Low edges.

  • Heavier and bulkier than others.

  • Limited lens options.

Lastly is the Ztylus case. These cases cater to the Ztylus lens kits: Revolver and their Prime Kit. The Revolver is a 4-in-1 lens that includes the macro, wide, angle, and fisheye. It allows you to rotate your lenses for easy access. Many lens kits have the lenses separate and you have to remove the prior lens in order to access another one.
