Mophie Outride Protects Your iPhone During Action Photography
August 2nd, 2012
Whatever sports or activities you’re into, it’s often nice to be able share your exploits with others via video. For many people who are into auto sports, bicycling, motocross, or other activities where there’s a high chance of falling or crashing ruggedized cameras specifically for the task are the norm. Rather than spending money on something like a GoPro camera, mophie has announced a new iPhone case that will do the trick for you called the Outride.
The Outride is a polycarbonate case for the iPhone 4 and 4S that is ruggedized and waterproof. The case is durable enough to survive crashes and drops and water resistant enough to film water sports. The case has a 170° wide-angle lens designed specifically to capture action shots. The case also comes with an app that allows the editing and sharing videos taken using the iPhone and the case, though it’s not clear what advantages it offers over the iPhone’s built in camera app or iMovie.
Expected this September, the Outride case will sell in bundles priced at $129.95 up to $149.95 (USD). Presumably, the difference in bundles will be based on the type of mounts included.
