Thoughts: Ozaki O!Photo Gear (iPhone case)

This will be one of few times, you’ll see me say / write – cost equates quality.

Sure, its price might seem too much for some, especially when it comes to a phone cover / casing.
Though at a higher than usual cost but it’s definitely an unique product to own, for iPhone users and photographers.

Lightweight case, clips nicely on to a iPhone 4S, with a pop out side for strap attachment.
Allowing users to connect it to its strap and on to tripods, giving one stability for photo snapping or hands free (when wearing case + strap on the neck).

Mock leather cover slip-proof the phone, more grip when placed on smooth surface and feels nicer when on palm.
And if you are like me, who loves spin turning your phone (do not try it, unless you are willing to damage phone), the mock leather makes it near impossible to miss (exclude ultimate butter fingers)

The soft and smooth strap allows users to wear their phones or cameras with comfort and is able to handle up to 15kg weight.
Well I’ve hooked it up to my DSLR and it’s able to handle the 2+kg (50D + 18-200mm), while stretching the strap a little.
I’m sure you wouldn’t want to overstretch it, so hook it up to your compact cameras or micro 4/3 instead.

Casing removal tip:
1) casing only: start from the top left hand corner and work your way down the left, to remove phone.
2) casing with strap: attached strap to the case tightly, press down lightly on the attached area (right side) to loosen phone from case.
