We usually write about products you can buy, but the iPhone4 Photography Kit is a concept that's on the drawing board, waiting for your support at Kickstarter.com. The kit is a slider case in three parts, plus an optional neckstrap. The left and right parts slide together and are sealed by a locking ring. The end result looks like a digital SLR with the ring resembling the camera lens. Actual photos are still taken with the iPhone 4's built-in camera. White and black are planned with potentially five additional colors if the project takes off.
It's a neat concept that you could own for just $30, as long as enough like-minded individuals kick-in at kickstarter.com. The neckstrap alone is a nice touch, considering the iPhone 4 has no slot for even a wriststrap and neither do most cases. When combined with an app like Camera+ or SkinCam (my own app... full disclosure), you could have a nice setup for the amateur photographer! After all, the best camera is the one you have with you, and this concept is a way to make sure that iPhone 4 is always handy.
