Lens offers 130-degree view, threaded tripod mount
Makers of the Arc hand-held stabilizer case and arm for the iPhone, iSteady Shot has now added the M-27 action camera mount to its lineup. Featuring aircraft-grade aluminum, hand grips or tripod mounts and a 37mm wide-angle lens, the M-27 is intended to give the iPhone 4 or 4S a further nudge up the scale towards the quality of a dedicated wide-angle camera or camcorder.
The lens offers users a 130-degree angle view using "crystal clear optics," says the company, and tripod mounts are available on both the top and bottom sides of the case to allow attachment to tripods or other devices. The case also features a microphone/light mount on the top.
The unit requires an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S for its custom-fit shape, and is made of solid high-grade aluminum over three quarters of an inch thick. The M-27 action camera mount sells for $100 and is available now from the iSteady Shot website.
