    I bought a jaw clamp with dovetail base and an iPhone 5 case. The clamb is what you would expect from RRS: beautifully machined piece of equipment. Feels solid and the mechanism is very smooth.

    The iPhone 5 case is a bit of a letdown. It’s actually more an iPhone 4-sized case with two extension pieces bolted on to it to make it fit an iPhone 5. Those two pieces look a little different from the rest of the case and I think they spoil the look of what would otherwise have been a beautiful case. It is a mystery why RRS says they will ship an iPhone 4 case later… That’s what they made in the first place…

    • Really Right Stuff says:

      The XC-iP5 was solely designed for the iPhone 5 – the spacers are crucial to the design of the case to provide better reception. We really tried to make a very slick case that wasn’t hindered in either function and aesthetic, which is why we are also making two different colored polymers for certain color combinations. If we do make an iPhone 4 case, it will have the same polymers added with a reduced size frame – again for reception issues. Believe us, we tried a gamut of frames and options, but in the end weren’t willing to sacrifice performance of the phone itself for aesthetic gain. Calls get dropped enough by providers — we don’t need to add to that problem.

    I see. It’sa shame though. I would order a spacer-less version if it was available

    Today I received my iPhone 5 case in red, and immediately installed it. I think it’s a work of art and simplicity.
    One thing I’d like to see is a way to attach the case to a slender neck strap and have it hang upside down from the bottom, which would place it so when held in one’s hand to answer a call or type a text, it would be right side up. The smallest RRS clamps are really too bulky for that use, though they could be adapted to an eye bolt. Something to think about, fellas.

  4. Dear RRS,

    I absolutely love my XC-iP5. I think it is a work of art, one that showcases and compliments the already beautiful industrial design of the iPhone 5. It’s my favorite case ever. Well done! I also love the B2-XJ2 clamp – it’s elegantly crafted and works really well with the pocket tripod legs.

    A couple of quick suggestions – I love the previous poster’s idea of having a neck strap, or better yet a wrist strap that would clamp onto the case. I would use this in numerous situations like shooting out of a car window, off of a boat, on a cliff, etc. where I don’t want to drop the phone. Seems like a no-brainer upsell.

    Second, I would love to see a mini-plate that would work with the B2-XJ series of clamps. For compact cameras like the RX100, it should be possible to have a small rail like plate that would work in the clamps. This would be great, because I would prefer to use the same B2-XJ clamp with the pocket tripod for both my iPhone and P & S camera. I’d rather not have to switch heads to use both. And frankly, the quality fo the RX100 is so much better than the iPhone, I really should be shooting with that if I happen to have it with me.

    Keep up the great work!
