3 Top iPhone Cases for Mobile Photography

Invest in the best case for your phone

The iPhone is a popular choice for mobile photography. When you want to protect your phone while taking photos, choose an iPhone case that doesn't get in the way of photographic purposes.

We asked people in the mobile photography community to provide 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

Moment

What We Like
  • Durable.

  • Lightweight.

  • Compatible with lenses and other accessories.

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

  • The button can be hard to press.

  • Difficult to clean light-colored cases.

Moment is one of the premier lens makers for mobile photography. It became well-known by enlisting ambassadors. These ambassadors 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 makes your phone feel more like a traditional camera. It has a slight grip for you to hold and a traditional shutter button. The case also has a built-in lens interface to match with the Moment lenses. If that isn't enough, it also has a wrist strap.

The lenses use a locking mechanism to secure the lens, so you won't worry about any lens detachment. Just twist and lock, and your phone is ready to shoot.

Mophie Cases

Mophie Cases

Mophie

What We Like
  • Charge your phone on the go.

  • Thin case.

  • Aesthetically pleasing.

What We Don't Like
  • Audio pass-through isn't supported.

  • Finicky wireless charging.

  • Doesn't provide a full charge.

The Mophie case isn't a lens kit. Instead, it's a case for photographers 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 don't prepare for the loss of battery life.

There are six cases: Juice Pack Reserve, Juice Pack Air, Juice Pack Plus, Juice Pack H2Pro, Juice Pack Ultra, and the Space Pack.

The cases range between about $60 and $150. Each case has unique qualities, from the basic battery charger to extra battery life and extra storage space.

Ztylus Cases

Ztylus Case

Ztylus

What We Like
  • Excellent modular system.

  • Versatile.

  • Protective.

What We Don't Like
  • Low edges.

  • Heavier and bulkier than others.

  • Limited lens options.

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