PhotoProX iPhone 5/5S case with lenses
Manufacturer: Optrix
MSRP: $149.95
PhotoProX

The PhotoProX is a rugged, waterproof case for the iPhone 5 and 5S that accommodates four included lenses. The case is designed for the outdoors and is built to withstand serious abuse—it can even be used for underwater photography. Your iPhone fits into a plastic “sled” which, in turn, slides into the clear plastic case. The top door, where the phone slides in, has a tight-fitting gasket and a strong latch. There is also a bottom door that permits access to the 3.5mm audio jack, the Lightning charging port, and the phone’s mic and speaker. This little door snaps shut with effort and is very difficult to open due to the necessary waterproofing gasket.
