The first time we heard of the Trygger photo filter for the iPhone was last summer. The company behind the product, called Trygger, announced in December of last year that it was working on version for the iPhone 5, and it is now shipping. If you’re looking for a way to improve your iPhone images, the Trygger’s polarized filter might do the trick.
The idea behind this photo filter is to help users of the iPhone take clear and vibrant photos anytime. The polarized filter removes glare from glass, water, metal, and hazy skies for richer colors and sharper images. The filter is made by placing a color neutral polarizing film between two layers of scratch resistant optical glass. The filter is also adjustable allowing the user to choose how much light is let in.
The version of the Trygger for the iPhone 5 slips onto the corner of the smartphone and sells for $39.99 (USD). They also make a version for the iPhone 4 that’s built into a case that sells for $49.99. Both versions are available in either black or white.
If the earlier images we saw are any indication of quality, it looks like it’s well worth the money.
