Use Your Phone as a Rugged Action Cam with the G90 Case

In most ways the smartphone is the height of convenience. Phone, check; computer, check; camera, check. But one market the smartphone seems well suited for, but hasn’t yet broken into with any reasonable force, is the action cam market.

One of the reasons for this (lack of serious image stabilization and durability aside) seems to simply be camera placement. Given where the lens is, mounting your phone as an action cam anywhere but your chest seems unrealistic or, at the very least, aerodynamically unwise. The new G90 Action Sports Camera case from G-Form addresses this exact problem.

The case uses a mirror and wide angle lens to redirect and widen your smartphone’s perspective. That way you can mount the phone aerodynamically lengthwise and give it a 140-degree view more ideal for action cam use.

True to the company’s history, the case is also waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and any other proof you may want to put it through. You won’t be able to get your hands on it till June, and no price tag has been attached as of yet, but we do know that it will be available for the iPhone 5, Samsung S4, 5th Gen iPod Touch, “and more.”
