VicamPlus Turns Your iPhone 5 Into a Rugged Action Camera with Three Lenses
A number of iPhone cases which give you some additional lenses for your photography pleasure like the TurtleJacket PentaEye have made it on our homepage. We’ve also covered some which are ruggedized such as Lunatik Taktik.
Now there is a designer named Lou who apparently is keen on recording any stunt he makes. To make the result look more dramatic while also protecting his expensive iPhone should he fail performing his action, he made this VicamPlus. On its core, it’s an iPhone case which not only give you more lenses but also better protection.
Specifically, VicamPlus comes with wide-angle, fisheye, and micro views lenses. Switching between them is a breeze thanks to the rotating mechanism. The case itself is made of aircraft-grade anodized aluminum. This approach is somehow interesting as it allows the case to remain slim and easy to the eyes, unlike other ruggedized cases which are commonly pretty thick. You still have to deal with a few screws, though, in order to secure it. Check out Lou demoing his VicamPlus below!
Lou has put up his project at Kickstarter. There are various offers for those who are interested to VicamPlus but in order to get the case alone, all you need is a pledge of $48 (the planned retail price is $99). If you wish to get your hands on the bells and whistles – like bicycle mount, car mount, and 4-wheel roll camera pulley – you will have to shell out a few extra dollars. The most expensive package costs $188. How do you like to pull up a stunt now?
