Take Candid Photos Discreetly Using The Covr Photo iPhone Case


We’ve all done it – taking a sneak video or photo with our phone while trying to look like we’re just minding our own business. Sometimes, we have a good reason for doing so. Other times, we’re just being creepy. Whichever the case, chances are, people knew you were filming anyway, since it’s really hard to pretend otherwise when you’ve got your phone’s camera framed and aimed at whatever person, place, or object you’re trying to capture onscreen.  The Covr Photo changes that.

An iPhone 6/6S case with a sliding camera lens, it lets you take snapshots and videos of scenes in front of you while holding your phone like a TV remote. Whether you want to shoot a video of the day’s Physics lecture without disrupting the class, discreetly spy on a co-worker’s design, or just take candid photographs on the street, this thing lets you do that in covert secret agent fashion.


The Covr Photo looks like a normal iPhone Case when first slipped over your phone, giving it a protective shell to help keep nicks and scratches away.  It comes with an opening for the phone’s camera lens like any other case, allowing you to shoot pictures the conventional way.  When you want to shoot covertly, though, you simply slide up the upper left section on the back of the case to reveal the angled lens and shoot away, all while looking like you’re just watching DJ Khaled videos on Snapchat.


Available now, the Covr Photo is priced at $49.99.

    Hmmm, this is very interesting. I have been in a situation or two where I didn’t want to look to creepy with my smartphone camera. This gadget would come in handy!

    I love the idea of this product. I can see many times this would come in handy. I would love to film some of the funny things my daughters do without them knowing until I shared it on Youtube. I can also see this product being used by voyeurs. I love street photography and getting pictures of strangers, but if people started using this for deviant uses then I’d be embarrassed to have it because people might think I was simply a perv trying to get some pictures of a sexy girl.

    I use to have a cheap attachment that was given to me as a gift that worked similar to this. It was not very durable and didn’t last very long. This looks much more durable. The problem is the case will not protect as much as my OtterBox does. I HAVE to always have my Otterbox on or I would break my phone because I am just too clumsy. As long as you are not clumsy like I am then I would highly suggest this product.

    There is a museum I go to here in town and they try and discourge people from taking pictures of the art. This would help to to surreptitiously take pictures without alerting the museum staff to what I was doing.

    Unlike a lot of photo phone attachments, you can easily change between using the attachment lens or the phones lens directly by simply sliding the cover. For $49.99 this cell phone photo lens attachment is a great deal.
