“We’re excited to introduce KLYP and bring a new level of quality and ease to how consumers capture life’s moments,” said Will Holowka, Product Manager for Manfrotto Lighting Supports. “With this innovation, Manfrotto is strengthening the connection between photography and mobile devices, allowing people to capture the moment wherever they are and whenever they want.”
Intended to become a must-have item for all digital enthusiasts, KLYP is a special iPhone case equipped with two adapter clips ready to host Manfrotto’s pocket tripods and LED lights. The two removable “clips” can be attached to any of four different points around the case to allow for both landscape and portrait images.
KLYP offers a stylish, functional method of attaching supports and additional lights to the phone, making it easier to FaceTime, Skype, and capture images and video. Its rigid, polycarbonate case offers superior protection while fitting snugly. With hundreds of millions of photos added to Facebook each day, it’s designed to meet this need and satisfy those who want better mobile images and videos to share in real time on social networks.
