Mumbai: The latest version of the iPhones are known for their amazing camera quality and numerous photographers and image experts including fans have testified that camera quality on an iphone 6S and 6S Plus gives DSLR cameras a run for their money.

To further enhance the powerful camera, numerous companies have developed iPhone camera accessories in the past but nothing comes close to the cool new Helium Core chassis, which transforms the latest versions of the iPhone into powerful camera rigs.


According to Gizmag, the Helium Core case allows users to customise their iPhones with industry standard 1/4-inch-20 mountable accessories and 37mm threaded lens.

The case is constructed out of anodized aircraft grade aluminum, which makes it sturdy, offers superior grip including access to the display, ports, jacks, and buttons.

What makes the Helium Core chassis useful is the collection of numerous mounting threads on all sides of the case. These quarter-inch mounting threads allow users to connect their iPhones to Tripods, jibs, rigs, handles, shoulder mounts, and many more.

Moreover, there are around 16 mounting points on the Helium Core that also allows the user to munt additional accessories such as external flashes, lights, microphones, and even straps. In additional, the rear side of the case has an integrated lens mount, right above the iPhones camera.

This allows users to attach and swap any 37mm threaded lens and filters. Consequently, this enhances photo capturing and video shooting, with the availability of various lenses such as macro, wide-angle, and zoom lenses.

Moreover, this is the first accessory which attempts to transform a mobile device into a formidable camera rig. The makers of Helium Core are currently seeking funding on kickstarter and have got an amazing response, having raised 55 per cent of the total amount of $30,000 in just three days.

With another 27 days to go, the company is well on its way to achieving its goal. Early buyers can grab the device for $108, along with additional offers. The company has assured that deliveries will start as soon as August if things fall in place.
