LiteChaser is a complete camera filter system for the iPhone 11

It's a bit of a given that phone cameras have been getting better and better in recent years, to the point where you can potentially now take professional-quality photos and videos with your smartphone.

That's well and true, but you might, like us, find that your snaps still come out looking distinctly average a lot of the time. Often, that's because, while the camera might be powerful, the lighting conditions might not be quite right, or your hand might be shaking a tiny bit, or any number of other reasons. Enter the likes of PolarPro, which makes amazing attachments for your smartphone to level up your mobile photography. 

It's got a new range of accessories dropping for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max - LiteChaser Pro, which will take your photos and video up a notch, and we wanted to run you through just what benefits you could reap from picking them up. If you think a complete filter system for iPhone 11 could improve your photography, read on. 

Get a grip

The core part of PolarPro's LiteChaser system is a case for your phone, which unlocks its potential by allowing you to clip on various other accessories. In itself, though, it's a great bit of protection that looks nice and sleek, and won't draw attention to itself when you're not in the middle of shooting. 

The case lets you clip on LiteChaser filters over the phone's camera unit (more on those later). It also lets you clip on an adjustable grip unit for better handling.

The grip is perfect for making sure that you're in control of your shot at all times, but it's even got its own secrets. You can use it to mount your phone on most tripods - a package that'll see you converting your iPhone into your 'A' camera in no time. 

Mount it

That mounting option means that you can really use your phone in a myriad of ways - you might want it on a tripod, or you might want it handheld, but the grip is great regardless. A low-profile rail means that you can position it wherever you need on the back of the phone, plus you can easily rotate it into a portrait position if you're shooting in vertical.

Plus, there's even a mount on top of the grip, too, which is perfect for connecting microphones or lights which will even further elevate your shooting toward the sort of performance previously reserved for DSLR cameras. 

ND filters and polarizer

Of course, in many ways the heart of PolarPro's system is its filters, and there are three superb options available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. PolarPro wanted to take what they were known for, their prestigious line of filters, and adapt it to a mobile system. Precision light control is essential when creating high-end content, which is why PolarPro custom-engineered a line of filters to be compatible with LiteChaser Pro. 

ND8 (3-Stop) & ND64 (8-Stop)

These neutral density filters will make sure that you're getting the right amount of light through to your lenses, and give your footage a more professional feel, ready for cinematic-style edits. 

Variable ND (3-5 Stop)

This little filter is an easy way into top-level shooting, letting you switch up how much light you're letting in on the fly so that you can shoot at lower framerates. That'll leave your content looking like you shot it with way more equipment. 

Circular Polarizer

As a simple one-stop way to reduce issues in your footage, whether they're glare-related, haze or reflections, this polarizer will see you capturing deeper colours, and is a great way to really easily improve your output. 

Adaptability

That range of filters, combined with the grip and case, means that you have access to a system that can adapt to any and all needs. Whether you're shooting handheld footage in low light, or setting up a timelapse shot with a tripod, you can do it all without needing to rig up special systems for yourself. 

Plus, with an additional lens caps and the protection of the case, you don't have to worry about everything being massively delicate - it's a set of equipment built to be actually used, not wrapped up in bubble wrap. 

Sustainability

Finally, though, we always love it when smaller businesses make sure to think about their impact on the planet, and PolarPro is doing just that. Whether it's refining its package to minimize single-use plastics, or ensuring that its products have long lifespans and can be better recycled, the business is taking steps that we value. 

It's got a carbon-offsetting system set up to make itself carbon neutral, too, which means that you can invest in the LiteChaser Pro system without any guilty conscience.

These stunning award-winning pro photos will blow you away

There are photos, and there are photos. We've all taken some holiday snaps at a particularly enviable location, or in a rather picturesque spot, and checked out the images later, thinking that professional photography might not be out of reach after all.

  • Best DSLR cameras: The best interchangeable lens cameras available to buy today

Well, maybe think twice about that - the images you're about to browse are from the shortlist of Professional shots from Sony's 2020 World Photography Awards, and to say they're stunning would be an understatement. 

  • Best compact cameras: The best point-and-shoot-cameras available to buy today

Angles

This image is all about the clean lines and stunning, bright colours. It's like something out of a child's imagination, but is actually just the result of people wanting a splash of colour in their lives. 

Isolation

Here, again, you get a splash of colour, this time in an otherwise white-out landscape. This tiny home looks like it might be encrusted in place, but in theory could be picked up like a trailer and driven away. The yellow of the main cabin is a beautiful contrast to the freezing outdoors. 

Construction

It's amazing seeing monumental structures in the process of being constructed, and there's something completely otherworldly about seeing these giant elephant heads in India, robbed of their context, with a worker casually holding one in place.

Tuckered out

Part of the story of any sport is the exhaustion afterward, whether you've won or lost. We love the way this wrestler has so clearly sat down utterly knackered, and the fact that his expression gives nothing away at all about how his own bout went. 

Growth

This image has something magic realist about it, and certainly seems to be sending a message about the value of reading and book-learning. The mushrooms growing from this tome seem to evoke wizards and witches, but maybe that's just us.

A matter of scale

This photograph is an interesting contrast in scales, with the architecturally complex model on the floor drawing the eye. The table above it is more beguiling, especially when you realise that it's an inch off the ground. 

Shorn

We all know the aftermath of a home haircut means sweeping - lots of sweeping. This photo takes that scene and turns it into a lovely meditation on texture, not to mention an ode to a classic-looking chair. 

  • Classic Lego sets: Do you remember these all time greats?

Mocked up

The models used by trainee doctors to practice their medicine are creepy at the best of times. The colour grading and orientation of this photo makes this scene seem almost like something out of a picture book, or constructed from toys.  

Uncanny valley

If you thought the last model was creepy, try this one on for size. It's a robot called Alter on display in a robotics museum in Tokyo, and as far as we're concerned, it's terrifying. 

Still life

This still life has beautiful colour to showcase in its tablecloth, while the subject, the tuber cassava, is lovingly focused upon and lit to show the wonderful variety of its knobbly crusted skin.

Micro

Bugs under a microscope - it's not our idea of fun, but the images you can get out of the process are undeniably striking. This black-and-white monstrosity is tiny, but photographed like this, could be a giant space beast for all you know. 

Big air

This kid is shredding it - proving that scooters can get huge air just like skateboards, and making us worry for his safety at the same time. The perspective is brave, and the expression on his face is priceless. 

Portrait

This portrait is of Chantal, a woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the victim of sexual violence perpetrated by soldiers. As part of photographer Denis Rouvre's Unsung Heroes project she talked about her experience. This photo is a raw reminder of the importance photography can carry as an act of witnessing. 

A retro look

We love the look and feel of this photo - you couldn't tell what decade it was from if you tried. It's a railroad worker in Ukraine, and we're fond of how proud she is of that uniform, paired with those spectacular curtains for a beautiful colour palette.

Captured at work

This might be our favourite portrait in this whole collection, a goldfish seller captured on his bike about to drive away. The lighting is sumptuous, while just taking in all the fish on his stand would keep us occupied for some time. 

Precious

Pangolins are trafficked in sad numbers, and remain extremely endangered. They're stunning creatures, and extremely beautiful to observe, as this photo demonstrates, picking out the details and outline of each of it scales with lovely skill. 

Texture

You might be hard-pressed to guess what this photograph is actually of - we certainly were stumped. It's actually a butterfly's wings under a lot of degrees of magnification.

  • Bonkers new animals imagined with the power of Photoshop

Chilly

Bears might be more used to the freezing cold than us, but we have to say we still feel pretty sorry for this chilly-looking customer. The frost in his beard is really detailed, while the black and white gives the whole picture a melancholic air. 

Colour grading

The grey of these trees is in wonderful contrast to their orange leaves, while the fallen foliage on the water's surface give this a really eerie vibe. It's like something out of True Detective, with the bayou beckoning. 

Man's mark

There's nothing like a remote road to remind you of the extent to which we have remodelled the world's landscapes to suit our ends. This winding road with its endless switchbacks is a textbook example. 

Clinical

Similarly, anytime you forget that we're growing plants, flowers and foodstuffs in almost insane quantities at a time, check out an image like this to remind you that many "farms" don't look like much like their name anymore. 

  • Proof that Photoshop makes everything better

Symmetry

Returning to calmer themes, this beautiful sea gate and two lanterns is shrouded all around by mist to create a scene that wouldn't look out of place in a Miyazaki film. It's a lovely, blanched photograph. 

A family business

It might not look like your own domestic bliss, but this photo of family harmony is delightful. The Bolivian family here have swapped to agriculture because the climate crisis was making their old craft of fishing harder and harder. 

Hellscape

And here's the climate crisis represented more forcefully - a natural gas flaring site in Nigeria spews flames into the sky, above a landscape that was once vibrant and full of life, and now looks like somewhere to be avoided at all costs. 

Pilgrimage

Again, the industrial background to this image is impossible to escape. We love the bizarre symbolism of this lone wanderer, decked out in gold, making what looks like a pilgrimage toward a promised land that doesn't hold much allure. 

  • Famous Photoshopped and doctored images from across the ages

Hell on earth

If the fossil fuels burning don't evoke the climate crisis, this terrifying image of a true conflagration should. Needless to say, it's from Australia's bushfire crisis, and the lone fire truck puts the scale of destruction into proper context. 

Bleached

A more peaceful scene, if still somewhat unsettling, is provided by this photograph of Pardis, near Tehran. The blanched-out colours make for a landscape that almost looks unreal.

True pink

You don't often see the colour pink in nature, but this superb aerial image of the Lemurian salt lake, Ukraine, shows that where it does arise, it's simply stunning. The addition of a single person gives you a sense of scale and points out the colours all the more vividly. 

Athleticism

We love how communal this image is, with these wrestlers training against the sand's resistance as a group, all striving for the same goal of excellence and victory. You can see how single-minded each is at the moment captured. 

True romance

We end on a true high note with this photograph of an Iraqi couple taking a boat trip having just been married. The bride picks her way up the rocky beach carefully, her beautiful dress clear and obvious as a beacon, while the groom carefully gets on the boat in the background. One lovely little further detail - in the background, a lone swimmer interrupts the lake's surface.
