Alpinist Case

So you need the durability and tank like build of one of those “high impact” cameras, but you need the image quality of something like an LX5 or Leica D-Lux? No sweat. Grab yourself one of these crazy ass Alpinist cases and you are ready for just about any extreme activity.

Red Pop

Another Kickstarter project that I am in love with is the Red Pop. Essentially, it adds a button to your iPhone and makes the act of taking a photo much more natural. I’ve seen some great photographers take some pretty incredible shots with the iPhone 4. An accessory like this makes it that much easier.

Details here.

The HipstaCase

Basically, the HipstaCase takes your beautifully designed Apple iPhone 4 and make it looks like a shitty plastic camera from the 1970’s or 80’s. Seriously.

So why would anyone have any interest at all in the HipstaCase? It also features a very clever and usable tripod mount.

Get ready for long exposures here.

WVIL

The idea of putting the sensor in the lens of a camera rather than the body isn’t a new one… However, this concept is the best that I’ve seen. Essentially, these smart folks built a full frame sensor inside of a camera lens that communicates wirelessly with the camera body. In this case, the body happens to be a modified iPhone. Brilliant… The future looks bright. Doubt me? Watch the videos:

Olympus Stylus Tough

So this one just dropped… Apparently, this new Olympus compact is tough as nails. The 14 megapixel camera features a decent zoom lens (5x optical), image stabilization, 720p HD video, and an HDMI out. And it’s protected by a case that provides water proofing to 33 feet, shock proofing to 6.6 feet, crush proofing to 220 pounds, and is freeze proof to 14-degrees. That’s a lot of damn proofing for around 300 bones.

Check it out.

The Anti Glass Back

Another day, another solution to protect your iPhone 4. Unplggd went on cnn.cn and found a metal back for the iPhone 4 manufactured by an OEM cell phone parts supplier in Hong Kong. The result is an iPhone that is still sleek and “Apple like,” but devoid of a fragile glass back. You can follow their mod here.

Hot Rod iPhone Covers

So, it’s no secret that I’m into hot rods… It’s a world surrounded by an amazing amount of talent and one of the players, Karas Kustoms, has recently decided to do a series of iPhone covers. My favorite is made out of two machined aluminum plates that are spaced with delrin and sandwich the phone using simple button head hardware. It’s a brilliantly simple design that not only protects your phone, but also helps with the famous “dropped call” problem that have made the iPhone 4 famous.
