We've seen a steady stream of products devoted to helping get the most out of the photographic capabilities of the iPhone. The FotoPro "Master Kit" aims to bring an all-in-one solution to the table that goes beyond add-on lenses. The kit is comprised of a protective case for the iPhone 5 with tripod and flash mountings for the other accessories in the pack: a Bluetooth-controlled flash, three lenses (X12 telephoto, wide angle, and fisheye, with both the wide-angle and fish-eye converting to macro lenses), a miniature tripod, a miniature monopod and a Bluetooth remote control.
The remote control is actually very useful, as taking a photo with a smartphone involves pressing the screen, which can compromise the quality of the image. The remote takes camera shake out of the equation, and it makes for a great deal more flexibility when using the tripod for self images of groups shots that you wish to be included in. It's also very handy for using a long monopod as an extension arm (though this isn't included in the kit) for those occasions where you need to get up above the crowd .
The Master Kit, including the iPhone 5 case, costs around $200. We'll update you on availability when we know more.
