Optrix has updated last year's Optrix HD sport case for the iPhone and iPod Touch with a 175-degree wide-angle lens version that helps put more of the action into focus - the Optrix XD.

Compatible with the iPhone 4, 4S and iPod Touch, the Optrix XD Sport features a polycarbonate shell and rubberized inner case that's water resistant and built to MIL-STD-810F military specifications, meaning it's rugged enough to meet standards for all departments and agencies of the United States Department of Defense.

To capture the action, Optrix includes both flat and curved mounting plates, which attach to helmets, handlebars, dashboards and other surfaces with 3M industrial adhesive.

An all glass, three element, 175 degree wide-angle lens enhances the 1080p HD video captured by the iPhone and iPod Touch and a thin membrane protects the touchscreen while allowing you to fully operate the iPhone while the case is on.

As well as capturing extreme sports video, the rubberized iPhone case is easily pocketable without the mounts so it can be used as a conventional case.

The Optrix XD Sport is available for US$99. For the iPod Touch 4G, an additional sled adaptor is required.
