Gear: Watershot Underwater Housing for the iPhone

Watershot for iPhone

The Watershot® underwater camera housing for the iPhone® comes complete with a glass lens port and lens baffle for optical image clarity, external threaded bezel for accessory lenses and filters, smart yet simple mounting system and a custom mobile application for imaging optimization and social media sharing. Completely waterproof to depths of 50 meters (165 feet), the iPhone is fully suspended within the polycarbonate housing effectively shielding the phone from wear, tear, shock and pressure. The Watershot is a serious tool for divers, snorkelers and anyone on, in and under water, yet boasts a consumer-friendly price tag of $99.

The free Watershot App, available on the App Store, is designed to utilize the built-in buttons to maximize camera functions from the basics to rapid fire, front and back camera use, GPS overlays and social media sharing while the phone remains enclosed safely in the housing. The built-in heavy-duty tri-pod mount is compatible with an available adapter to utilize the wide variety of GoPro® mounting accessories. A well-planned accessory line launching in November allows for maximum customization. Surf and action sports photographers will appreciate the ultra wide-angle fisheye lens and pistol grip accessory. The dive computer module, macro lens, colored filters and lighting kits are designed to meet the individual demands of divers and underwater photographers. While the Watershot comes with an adjustable lanyard, a buoyant lanyard is available to ensure additional peace of mind.
