iPhone LED Ring Light on Phocus Case

Phocus (previously known as OWLE) sent over this case for me and I thought it would be a fun product to share since (especially as of late) I receive emails about various iPhone Video Rigs. The Phocus is a case for the iPhone 4/4s that allows you to add 1/4-20 accessories and a single hot shoe accessory. The iPhone needs to be removed from a phone case in order to slide in to the Phocus. The reason for this is to align the iPhone camera directly to the adapted lens for the sharpest results. It is a very snug fit which will also cause problems if you are using an iPhone screen protector.

Overall a great kit if you're a die hard iPhone Videographer. I have not found many other cases to fit such a niche that adds a hotshoe and tripod mounts to an iPhone, but a basic kit can run close to $100 dollars. The Phocus Kits are available in different bundles that come with a set of 2-3 lenses. Personally, I find the most useful lenses are the Macro for better close-up photography, and the wide angle lens for a wider field of view in video mode. The lenses are threaded so that you can attach optional filters and here i've found use for a Yongnuo Macro LED Ring Light. Information about the products can be found below.

  1. I got both of these products, but the ring light didn't come with the correct adapter. I had some friends but them too and theirs didn't come with it either.

    Any ideas what I can search for to find the ring adapter that would fit this?

    @db - You can easily get step-up or step-down adapters to match your thread. Make sure you get a single adapter that goes from one size to the next, and not several that need to be stepped up in increments.

    This old article might make more sense about those types of filters: httpss://cheesycam.com/step-filter-variable-nd-filter-rubber-hood/

    This LED Ring Light is awesome. Unfortunately mine came with 58mm and 67mm rings instead of 49mm and 52mm I asked for. I don't even know what use a 67mm lens makes, since the ring light's inside diameter is 64mm. But they are standard Cokin Adapter rings and easily available.

    @james - There is no fisheye available in this kit, and the ring light is larger than the lens so it doesnt show up.

    @Gautch - Its a threaded mount, similar to a filter. Maybe i can try to screw on an ND to see how it fits.
