Optrix-loving 2013 MTB World Champion Greg Minnaar captured this video with his iPhone 5 with an XD5 case, Chest Mount for XD5, and the Optrix VideoPro App.

Wakeboarding with an iPhone and an Optrix XD is great summer fun!

Optrix and iPhone took a wild ride to Fiji with Triple Point Expeditions.

Transform your iPhone into a Ultra-Rugged, Waterproof, Mountable Action Sports Camera.

The XD improves the HD video of iPhone by adding an all-glass, three element, 175° wide-angle lens to increase the field-of-view of the 120° angle lens of the iPhone. The result is a true wide-screen experience that is closer to real-life.

Optrix Precision EngineeredPrecision Engineered

Optrix iPhone cases are 4th generation designs and the result of years of field testing, customer feedback, and countless hours of perfection-seeking R&D.

Our case designs and quality standards are so difficult to manufacture we hired the company that builds ruggedized laptops for the US military to build our cases. The result is an extremely well-designed product manufactured to precise requirements for durability and functionality.

Go Anywhere, Shoot Anywhere Toughness. Your iPhone is Protected.

Waterproof, crush proof and with a drop test iPhone survival up to a height of 30 feet, our cases use an impact resistant, custom poly-carbonate unibody design for the ultimate in protection. Because of this, our cases are lighter and vastly stronger than the typical “clam-shell” style cases on the market.

Waterproof to 33 feet (10 meters)

IPX8 Water Immersion Rating

Optrix cases are designed and built to a rating of IPX8 which is the highest rating possible for electronic housings. The IPX8 rating means no damage to your iPhone beyond 3 feet continuous immersion in water –in fact, we’ve tested our iPhone 5 cases at 33 feet with no water intrusion.

Leak Test Results

30 ft Drop Test Survival

Optrix XD Drop RatingOptrix cases are designed and manufactured to withstand very high levels of impact. This means no damage to your iPhone even when dropped onto pavement from a height of 30 feet.

Optrix cases use an impact resistant, custom poly-carbonate unibody design for the ultimate in protection. Because of this, our cases are lighter and vastly stronger than the typical “clam-shell” style cases on the market.

When we think tough we think military grade. Bump, bash, crash, and splash with your phone safely housed in our poly-carbonate shell and rubberized inner iPhone sled.

Before you buy any iPhone case be sure to check the manufacturer’s spec for impact rating before it’s too late. iPhone repairs such as a cracked screen replacement can range from $100 to $200.

Mount ReadyMount Ready

The right mount is critical for capturing an amazing photo or video. That’s why Optrix offers more specialized mounts than any other iPhone case maker in the world. Optrix offers a superior photography and video platform.

1) What devices fit into the Optrix case?

iPhone 5, iPhone 5S

2) Can I operate my device while it is in the case?

Yes. Optrix has a protective watertight membrane over the touchscreen that allows you to fully operate your device while it is safely locked inside.

3) Can I talk on my iPhone while it is enclosed in the case?

The door on the bottom of the housing that allows access to the headphone jack and microphone so you can talk on your iPhone 5.

4) Can I charge my iPhone inside the case?

The door on the bottom of the case that allows access to the lightning cable jack for charging your iPhone 5 while still in the case.

5) How long can I record?

Recording time depends on a number of factors. In real life conditions we see close to an hour of HD recording time with 7GB. Therefore a 64G iPhone could record for up to 8 hours (limited by battery of course).

6) How long will my battery last?

Battery life can depend on many factors including temperature and age of device. We typically see 1-2 hours of recording time.

7) Can I use alternative iPhone cases inside the Optrix case?

Third party cases will not fit into the Optrix housing. Our proprietary sleds were designed to be sleek and sturdy enough to use as an everyday, light duty case, so use ours instead.

8) How Waterproof is my case?

Waterproof to a depth of 33ft (~10m).
Optrix cases are great for water sports (kayaking, surfing, wakeboarding, etc.) but are not intended for Scuba Diving. Optrix cases do NOT float.

9) Can I listen to music with my iPhone inside an Optrix case?

Yes, access to headphone jack is possible through the charging door. When the charging door is open the case is no longer waterproof.

10) What is the Optrix warranty?

Optrix has a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects and a 30-day money back guarantee with proof of purchase.

Optrix Lenses carry a 1 year warranty against factory defects. As the lens is constructed of glass, it is possible to break the lens when dropped directly onto the lens face. This is not considered a factory defect and not covered under warranty.
