PERFECTLY LIT

Meet the world’s first and only iPhone 6/6s selfie case featuring the highest quality lights on the front and back. The fully dimmable touch sensor offers complete control and incredible range and precision, so you always get the perfect lighting your photos deserve.

FEATURES

  • Premium Selfie Light: Adds professional-grade lighting to every selfie.
  • Powerful Backlight: Balances any light source to bring out the detail in every photo, including food pics and close-ups.
  • 0-100% Touch Dimmer: Offers incredible control, range and precision for perfect lighting.
  • High CRI rated LEDs: Ensures accurate and vivid color rendering on every shot.
  • Easy-to-use: All features can be easily accessed with just one hand.
  • Sleek Design: Minimalistic design preserves iPhone's elegant look and feel.
  • Built-in Battery: Rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers over 500 photos per charge.

Over 100 million selfies are taken every day. Yes, every single day. Some great. Some not so great. Well, the lighting can make all the difference. There’s a reason why most selfies taken in dark places usually end up in the trash. Photos taken without enough light are terrible quality, ultimately ruining amazing moments you can never get back.

litcase solves it all.

The professional quality selfie light is perfect for selfies with one person, two people, or even a whole group. litcase makes colors pop and fills in unflattering shadows.

THE PROOF IS IN THE SPECS

Smartphone cameras do not perform well in low light.

Imagine the camera sensor on your phone is like your eye. It has a limited range of light it can see. Just like your eye, the sensor strains itself to see in dark settings. When the sensor strains itself, it creates a lot of digital noise and grain resulting in a low quality image.

The ISO setting is the camera's sensitivity to light. Without getting too technical, all you need to know is the higher the ISO, the more digital noise and grain you get in the photo.

NOT ALL LIGHT IS CREATED EQUAL

You've been selling yourself short.

Most of the lights that illuminate your face have a low CRI (color rendering index). CRI measures how accurate light is in portraying colors in a picture. We are using industry leading LEDs with a CRI rating of 95.

litcase easily outperforms the iPhone 6s screen flash. Not only is the light brighter, resulting in a better quality image, but the high CRI LEDs bring out all the colors beautifully. The iPhone 6s screen flash looks grey and dull while litcase gives a warm and flattering light.

The colors in low CRI light almost blend together, while litcase's high CRI LEDs show each color in their full glory. Reds looks red. Greens look green.

Our LEDs are color balanced to 3200 Kelvin which matches most of the lighting at bars, on the street, or in your home.

DON'T LEAVE ANYONE OUT

This isn't your grandma's screen flash. litcase is a serious selfie light that's powerful enough to handle any group in any setting.

litcase is the only iPhone case to offer true 0-100% dimmability.

Fully dimmable lights on both the front and back ensure that you’ll have the perfect amount of light for every photo. When you’re taking a selfie of just yourself, you only need a kiss of light but when you’re taking a group shot with your crew, you need a lot of light.

EASY TO USE

We designed the touch dimmer to rest where your thumb would be naturally. Sliding your thumb up and down to get to the perfect exposure is easy.

The flash on the iPhone is terrible at taking food pics for a few reasons:

  • The flash is too harsh and not dimmable at all.
  • Drowns out the colors of the food.
  • Blows out the image. For example, this burger is is too bright while the background is too dark.

litcase:

  • Has a fully dimmable touch sensor so you get the perfect exposure.
  • Soft, even light.
  • High CRI accurately captures the vivid colors.

OPTIMIZED FOR SINGLE HAND USE

We designed litcase to work perfectly in one hand.

We placed the controls where your fingers would rest naturally so you can turn the unit on, run your thumb along the touch sensor to adjust the amount of light, and take the photo all with one hand. You can even switch back and forth between the front and back lights.


A LOT OF LIGHT, A LITTLE BULK

Just because you have a case with a light, doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice what makes an iPhone so great.

We designed litcase to be as minimal as possible. We wanted it to pack a big punch with lighting power but still be a beautiful case that easily fits in your pocket.

HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS

litcase features its own lithium-ion battery so it won't drain your phone's power.

The battery life allows for over 500 photos per charge.

LITCASE PROTECTS YOUR IPHONE
