I guess it goes without saying that a device like the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch are extremely beautiful to look at, boasting all of the industrial design genius that hails from Cupertino, where it will also naturally come at a price – such gizmos are more often than not fragile. Well, the thought of using one of the three mentioned devices from Apple as an action sports camera is certainly a daunting one, as Gorilla Glass won’t do much if you happen to suffer from a fall and said Apple device kisses the ground – hard.
Well, here is a tool that will be able to help you out – the Optrix HD Sport Mount which is touted to be the first weatherproof rugged case which was specially designed to transform the iPhone 4, 4S and iPod touch into an action sports camera. The iPhone 4S would be the most optimal device among the three, considering it comes with 1080p HD and image stabilizing capabilities, giving you the opportunity to capture great looking video in most of the environments, ranging from extreme racing to perhaps a far more relaxing day by the poolside.
Heck, it is touted in the press release to be”tough enough for military use”, but I don’t think this is going to stop a bullet anytime soon though. Optrix’s patented design will make sure that your iDevice is securely housed within, without sacrificing on accessibility as you can still obtain easy access to its interface, paving the way for instant playback, video editing and even image and video uploading. Not only that, you can also check out a full-screen image of the framed shot, not to mention a one-hand quick release design that allows you to adjust shooting angles in a fast and painless manner.
It does not matter whether you are snowboarding, skateboarding, mountain biking, or racing, the Optrix HD Sport Mount is good enough to handle all of those sports without missing a beat. If you are interested in picking this puppy up, you can always place a pre-order for $79.99.
