Manfrotto KLYP Case + ML240 LED Light

From Manfrotto:
Acknowledging the market trend towards smartphones as serious image capture devices, and the huge number of videos and stills taken on the iPhone, Manfrotto, the market leader in photo and video accessories, have taken their first step into making products for those that want images from their iPhone. KLYP offers a stylish, functional method of attaching supports and additional lights to your phone, allowing you to make images, FaceTime and video capture better and easier.
Five KLYP kits
KLYP comes in five distinctive kits: as a case alone with two adaptor clips to enable use of your own supports and lights, one with the Manfrotto ML240 LED light for videography, Facetime and photography in low light situations and another one with the ML240 and the Manfrotto Pocket tripod for supporting the case when out and about. The more compact ML120 LED light is also available as an option in place of the ML240 in both options.
The KLYP case is made of a rigid polycarbonate with a quality feel soft touch coating giving it a silky smooth appearance. The KLYP features a felt inlay to enable smooth fitting of the two parts to the phone without possibility of damage and it clips together positively.
Stylish looks with the added design input of people who understand supports and lighting, KLYP is optimised to allow the attachment of a tripod and Manfrotto LED light without detracting from its appearance.
What makes KLYP unique?
By using two cleverly designed removable accessory “clips”, Manfrotto have developed the KLYP case with a patented rail system, which enables the case to remain sleek and have no protrusions to detract from its appearance. The accessory “clips” can be attached to any of four different points around the case to allow landscape and portrait images to be taken with ease, and in darker conditions, to add a Manfrotto LED light in the optimum position to fill in shadows when shooting stills or video in low light. When using the iPhone’s FaceTime feature, the continuous light can be turned 180 degrees to light the user in a soft pleasing way.
Key Features

  • Easy to fit “always-on” two piece casing offering iPhone protection
  • Soft felt insert to avoid damage when fitting
  • Silky smooth soft touch coating gives the case a high quality appearance
  • Designed to have no protruding parts for comfortable carrying
  • Four points to attach tripods and additional lighting for flexibility and performance
  • Unique clip and rail system for simple secure fixing

Key Benefits

  • Designed to allow additional lighting to be fitted for better quality video and stills in low light
  • Compact size, even with LED light fitted. Can be taken anywhere you would take your phone. Always with you!
  • The ML240 LED light adds soft light giving natural skin tones to your videos and stills in low light
  • The ML120 LED light provides a more portable solution, with lower light output, ideal for FaceTime or Skype conversations

From the BBC:
The world's first colour moving pictures dating from 1902 have been found by the National Media Museum in Bradford after lying forgotten in an old tin for 110 years.
The discovery is a breakthrough in cinema history.
Michael Harvey, from the National Media Museum, and Bryony Dixon, from the British Film Institute, talk about the importance of the discovery.
The previous earliest colour film, using the Kinemacolour process, was thought to date from 1909 and was actually an inferior method.
The newly-discovered films were made by pioneer Edward Raymond Turner from London who patented his colour process on 22 March 1899.
The story of Edwardian colour cinema then moved to Brighton. Turner shot the test films in 1902 but his pioneering work ended abruptly when he died suddenly of a heart attack.
Now the film has been restored by the National Media Museum and is being shown to audiences for the first time. (thanks Stewart)
