I can see clearly now: the Clarifi macro lens for the iPhone
The Clarifi lens by Griffin (Amazon, $18.35) is a really cool new iPhone case-slash-macro photo lens.
It protects your 3G iPhone (sorry, doesn't work on the "old" ones) while providing a lens for focusing up-close or on tiny objects like small print on business cards or other copy.
The lens is built-in, so you don't have to carry any extra pieces around, and doesn't interfere with normal picture-taking. When you need to take a close-up, just slide the lens over with your thumb and you're good to go.
Griffin claims their Clarifi lens lets iPhone users focus on objects only about 4 inches away, compared to the iPhone's normal 18-inch requirement.
The case itself is a tough polycarbonate with holes in all the usual places to allow accessory attachment and docking.
