"I wish I could have showed that to my friends."
It's a pretty common thing to say to yourself when you're on the road traveling, there's always a crazy road or a beautiful city that you regret not sharing with the people back home. Sometimes photography just doesn't cut it, and that's where video comes into play. The problem however, is that until recently, quality video has been almost unobtainable, especially for more extreme activities—yes that includes overlanding.
When the GoPro was announced, it finally made HD Video affordable, not to mention nearly indestructible, but it still wasn't for everyone, the GoPro required a computer and editing software...which required a significant amount of time. You probably didnt realize that the solution to the problem was likely sitting in your pocket the entire time, the iPhone. With it's built-in HD video and integrated editing software, it's perfect for someone on the go—as long as it didn't need to leave your hand.
Luckily, Mophie just launched the Outride, a waterproof and nearly indestructible case that turns your iPhone into the action camera you've always wanted. The case allows you to quickly mount your iPhone to a variety of surfaces to get that interesting angle and make sure the people back home are right in the middle of the action. The case is paired with an innovative Outride iOS app that allows users to upload videos to the action sports community Morphie is launching, and share it with the usual social media networks all from one device on the fly.
Plus, mounting your iPhone out of reach might just be what you needed to revive your adventures—you'll just have to get used to letting it get beat up.
The Mophie Outride starts at $130 and will be available for purchase in mid-September.
