Marin, CA – May 17, 2011 – Optrix, designer of action sports video cases, announces the pre-order availability of the Optrix Wide-Angle at Kickstarter, the second version of their heralded iPhone 4, 4S and iPod Touch case that allows extreme sports enthusiasts to safely and easily shoot, edit and upload 1080P videos from their mobile device.

The Optrix Wide-Angle allows users to capture images and videos using a 175 degree wide-angle lens, resulting in a panoramic, wider viewing area.  It is also bump, spill, splash and drop proof, making it ideal for extreme sports such as mountain biking, skateboarding, skiing and more.

“The Wide-Angle case is the second version of our popular HD Sport, allowing extreme sport enthusiasts to capture wider pictures and videos without worrying about the safety of their device,” said John Willenborg, founder of Optrix.  “We are reaching out to the Kickstarter community by giving them the opportunity to experience the Optrix Wide-Angle before it is available anywhere else.”

Similar to its predecessor, the Wide-Angle is tough enough for military use and possesses Optrix’s patented design, including; the soft touch iPhone sled which can be used as an everyday case, the one-hand quick release that makes adjusting shooting angles fast and easy, and the full-screen interface access that enables instant playback, editing and uploading.

The Optrix Wide-Angle is available with a variety of accessories, including a chest mount and multiple industrial base mounts that safely and securely adhere to any surface.  Currently available for preorder, the Optrix Wide-Angle case and mount for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod Touch can be found at Kickstarter and at www.optrix.com.

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.
