Mophie today debuted 'OUTRIDE', an action sports camera solution to record and share video using the iPhone.

OUTRIDE eliminates the need for dedicated video or camera devices, which add bulk and can cost upwards of $300, by harnessing the existing features of the iPhone and adding the hardware and software for outstanding, all-in-one filming, editing and sharing. OUTRIDE hardware is waterproof and impact resistant and comes bundled with a variety of custom mounts to capture action shots in the surf, snow, dirt or concrete.

"With the ever-growing action sports market, and our success in developing ruggedized products for those rough-and-tough tech users, we felt we were ready to design and develop a product that would take the iPhone and its camera capabilities to its limits," said Ross Howe, vice president of marketing at mophie. "While the action sports community has a lot of camera and video options to choose from, they weren't able to share their moments with the community in real time. OUTRIDE gives the action sports community these capabilities in a durable, compact, quality and cost-efficient way."

● High-impact, water-proof and lightweight polycarbonate housing protects the iPhone in any scenario
● Water-proof
● Modular quick-release mounting system allows recording at any angle and attachment to any surface on a variety of sports equipment
● Wide angle lens is optimized for recording action sports
● "Lights, Camera, Action!" - Whether you have a passion for surfing, motocross or skate, there is an OUTRIDE mounting kit that will fit your sport.
● Capture, View and Share - Free on the iTunes store, the OUTRIDE app is a place for the action sports community to search and share videos from around the globe, on-the-go:
● Personal Profile - Get started by uploading a profile picture and adding in your location. From the personalized profile, users can view captured videos and photos, find and follow friends, and customize categories
● Capture - Allows the user to shoot both vertically or horizontally
● View-Custom settings allows for a unique viewing experience, and provides notifications of "friends" updates
● Share-Community - based sharing allows users to discover new users and connect with the "mophie" community within the app and through other social networks

OUTRIDE bundles range from $129.95 to $149.95 and will be available in mid-September.

Does it float?

I could see this doing well if it was around $50. But over $100 is ridiculous.

I have two go pros. This is really dumb. You need to invent a better mouse trap... Not worse. The size and shape alone is going to catch wind and waves... However hmmmm thinking, the software could add things like gps recording, speed, etc. You could merge a training app like "strava" to the recording software and add telemetry data in the video. Go pro does not do that, so that might be enough to be a better mouse trap.

GPS data is an added benefit.. But as you said, the physical size alone will make it more clunky. I'd much rather smash a GoPro than my cellphone.

Stupid. Might as well get a go pro.

Figure out a way to push a "wide angle only" and a "2x tele converter only" solution as well. Not all shutter bugs are action and sport enthusiasts. This could keep prices low and the spectrum of buyers will shoot up for sure.
