Case Turns iPhone 4 and 4S into Sports Action Cameras
The HD Go Pro helped ambitious sports action videographers stop breaking expensive camera equipment with their easy helmet mounted camera solution. The Optrix HD Sports Mount hopes to do the same for adventerous iPhone 4 and 4S owners.
The Optrix HD offers a much safer iPhone 4 and 4S helmet attachment solution than, lets say, duct tape or lots of rubber bands. It even doubles as a rugged weatherproof case. The company’s press release touted the case as “tough enough for military use” but, I’d advise against testing claim's validity. The case uses two different mounting flats and a 3M industrial adhesive to ensure the iPhone stays in place. The case even covers the iPhone touchscreen with a .5mm thick membrane ensuring the case protects the phone from all angles. Sadly the case doesn’t allow diving underwater with the iPhone yet.
The Optix HD allows for a number of unique mounting options giving budding action videographers a definite creative advantage when trying to capture action in even the most extreme environments. Carving up fresh powder down a mountain side? Check. Biking across the county? Check. Curious where your dog disappears to every time he escapes the house? Problem solved.
The Optrix HD, priced at $79.99, offers a capable and cheaper alternative to the HD Go Pro ($199). While it won’t protect your iPhone from every conceivable accident, it successfully transforms the iPhone 4S into s capable sports action camera.
