Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: buy a case to protect the lenses

If you’ve just acquired a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra because of its powerful cameras, and want to keep the lenses protected, then this is the case for you: the Nillkin CamShield Pro.

For less than 20 Euro you can keep the lenses on your Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra protected and less dirty than if you use the smartphone without any protective case. If you use the smartphone as an imaging tool, it’s a good idea to protect its lens system the best way you can, all the time.

I’ve acquired one of these cases, although from another brand, for my Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro, and it’s the type of accessory I believe those who want to protect the lenses on their smartphones should buy immediately. So, if you’ve just acquired a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, this is for you. Available from Amazon Spain, the Nillkin CamShield Pro is different from other smartphone cases, as it not only protects the whole device, but it also offers a sliding camera cover that keeps dust away from the lenses, something that helps to keep the smartphone ready to shoot at any moment.

From my own experience with the protective case I acquired for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro I know it works rather well, something I believe this version for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will also do. It fits the smartphone perfectly and the cover ensures that the large group of lenses this model features is protected. The case has a pleasant, non-slip texture to reduce the risk of dropping the phone, making your phone safer to use. The sliding cap moves easily between the open and closed positions, and emits an audible snap when closed, staying secure when moved to the open position. Even if you leave the lens unprotected, the 0.2mm raised bezel around the “camera island”, guarantees the lenses are protected from scratches when you put the phone down or it falls from a low height.

One thing I discovered is that to use some of the lens and filter clip adapters I’ve also acquired for photography and video I need to remove the case, so I keep a simple transparent protective case — that came with my Redmi Note 10 Pro — in my photo bag, to use in those occasions. But most of the time and for everyday use I keep the protective case with the lens cover on, as it offers me the same type of protection to the lenses that I like to have on cameras.

This type of protective cover — Nillkin CamShield Pro — is an excellent solution if you want to adequately protect the optical system of a cell phone, which makes sense, especially if you plan to use the camera creatively. Remember to pack a micro cloth for cleaning the lens as well, and you’re all set to go on your next photo adventure… with your brand-new Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
