Hitcase transforms an iPhone into an extreme sports camera

Hitcase Corp has developed waterproof cases that transform the iPhone 4 and 5 into a point of view camera for action sports -- the Hitcase and Hitcase Pro. Both feature a design protecting the phone from the elements and shields it from shock while still allowing use of the touch screen, buttons, and headphone jack. A mount system allows the case to be securely fastened to nearly anything. When the port plug is installed, the case is waterproof to 33 feet. The Hitcase Pro features a wide-angle glass optic that doubles the field of view of the phone's camera.

The Hitcase and Hitcase Pro are available before the end of October for the iPhone 4 and 4S for $90 and $130 respectively. The iPhone 5 versions are expected to be the same price, and be available for purchase by mid-December.
