iPhone users looking to turn their device into an actioncam have been spoiled for choice as of late, and Qmountz by Maptaq is the latest protective case and mount package to join the fray.

There’s been a proliferation of iPhone-to-actioncam products recently, and Qmountz competes with similar gadgets like the Miveu-X, Optrix XD, and Hitcase and ChestR Mount. Qmountz promises to make your iPhone shock-resistant, shatter-proof, and waterproof at depths of up to 3 meters (almost 10 feet), with the aid of a clear plastic shell case, which houses the iPhone in question and protects it from harm.

Qmountz appears to be primarily targeted toward cyclists, and it comes packaged with the necessary mounts to allow attachment to a bike’s handlebars, helmet, or the chest of the rider.

Qmountz is available now for €79 (US$105), and at present is compatible with iPhone 4/S models only. However, an iPhone 5 unit is slated for release in February.

In addition, a fisheye lens dubbed the "Q Lens" is also offered at €29 ($38), which increases the camera's field of view to a full 180 degrees.
