If you want an action cam but don’t want to pay the big bucks, the ProShot might be just what you’re looking for.

It’s a waterproof and ruggedized smartphone case designed to turn your iPhone into an action cam of sorts.

Made by a ‘world class engineering team,’ ProShot comes with two separate covers: one for shooting in shallow water and one for more deep-sea adventures.

The first case is much more functional in the sense that it still lets you use your touchscreen while still being waterproof down to 6 feet. The second case doesn’t let you use your touchscreen, but instead relies on your iPhone’s volume button to trigger the camera. By doing so, it’s capable of keeping your iPhone safe down to 90 feet below water.

Along with both cases come a set of lenses that let you shoot fisheye, wide and flat. A red filter is also included to help color-correct underwater images.

ProShot_3

One of GoPro’s major advantages over other action cam systems has been its massive lineup of mounting systems. The makers of ProShot made sure to keep it competitive by offering up their own series of mounts, including a chest strap, suction mount, bike mount and pole mount.

Of course, for this to be beneficial over an action cam such as a GoPro, you’ll need an iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus.

But, if you already have one of those, its $99 price point isn’t bad at all, especially considering the latest iPhone generation is capable of shooting 4K footage at 30 frames per second, the same as GoPro’s $429 HERO4 Black.
