Optrix XD5 Rugged Camera System for iPhone 5

Optrix XD5

Transforms an iPhone 5 into an Incredibly Tough Action Video Camera System

Optrix introduced the XD5, the first ultra-rugged, camera optimizing system for iPhone 5 that enables sports enthusiasts to record wide-angle HD videos in extreme conditions — even underwater. The XD5 fits the iPhone 5 like a glove for unparalleled protection against water and shocks.

Optrix XD5 LensOptrix XD5 system incorporates features from its award-winning XD4 product, including the 175 degree lens that enhances the iPhone 5’s 1080p HD optics and the clear protective membrane that enables users to continue using their iPhone while in the housing. It enhances the previous design with a thinner, lighter and stronger unibody, and a new rail mounting system for quick on-off for helmets, chest mounts, water sport mounts, handle mounts, and more.

Designed using the same concept as a Formula 1 race car, the XD5 utilizes a “monocoque” protective unibody system that encapsulates the iPhone 5, shielding it from pressure and making it drop safe from up to 40ft.  In addition, the XD5’s enhanced design utilizes a unique waterproofing seal that guarantees waterproof ability up to a depth of 15ft.

“Many action sports camera systems exist in the market, but only the XD5 takes into account real life video capturing needs,” said John Willenborg, founder of Optrix. “The ability to easily adjust shooting angles, access to all controls and its compatibility with multiple mounting options solidifies the XD5 as the ideal action camera system for the iPhone 5.”

The XD5 also incorporates a second door to access charging connectors, headphone jack and microphone, making it the ideal option as an everyday rugged case. For iPhone 5 users wishing to enhance their videos, Optrix provides a suite of cutting-edge video recording and editing software and apps, including VideoPro, which adds full telemetry data such as speed, G-force, lap time and track map onto the video.
