The SeaLife SportDiver is a compact and lightweight underwater housing for most smartphones. The SportDiver housing will allow divers to take photos and video with their smartphone down to 40 meters. The SportDiver can encase most Android Phones and iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, Xr, Xs, Xs Max, 11, 11 Pro Max, SE (2nd Gen), 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max models. The heavy-duty housing is constructed of Polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminum and optical grade glass. And while the SportDiver housing is heavy duty, it is not heavy, weighing less than 641 grams, and is lightweight for travelling and offers almost neutral buoyancy in water depending on which iPhone model is used.
The SportDiver is easy to hold and use and offers a large shutter lever and rear control buttons for easy operation, even with dive gloves. Snorkelers and Divers can get more creative with their photos or video shot by using advanced camera settings. Using the free SportDiver App available on the App Store or Play Store adjust Zoom, Exposure (EV), Auto/Manual Focus, White Balance, Tint, Lens selection, RAW+JPEG mode, Live Photo and Background Blur. Unlike other smartphone housing apps, there are no annoying in-app purchases or ads. You can easily switch between photo and video mode.
The App Playback mode shows full size photos and videos with vertical thumbnail strip to easily locate your images. Videos start playing automatically when selected. All files are also saved to the camera roll. The SportDiver housing automatically connects to your phone and the SportDiver app using Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 5 wireless technology. No cables or buttons touch the phone and offers ultra-low power consumption for both the phone and the housing which is powered by two AAA batteries that last over 50 hours of continuous use.
For enhanced imaging results, a removable underwater colour-correction filter is included with the SportDiver which restores natural underwater colours. The filter easily attached or removes underwater and includes a safety tether to prevent loss. The SportDiver housing features triple 1/4-20 tripod mounts which mounts to any light or light tray with standard tripod threads such as SeaLife’s range of Sea Dragon underwater photo/video lights.
For the phone’s safety and protection, the SportDiver has a sturdy holding spring and rubber grip tabs that securely hold the phone in place and add shock-protection. The SportDiver has Dual Leak Alarms which include an internal moisture alarm and a vacuum pressure alarm which alert the diver with on-screen warnings, audio and LED signal in the unlikely event the waterproof seal is compromised and there’s a loss of housing pressure or moisture is detected. The door of the SportDiver is sealed with a TPE O-ring and a robust cam-lock sealing latch that easily and securely locks waterproof door. To prevent interior fogging from residual moisture, the SportDiver uses the anti-fogging agent Moisture Muncher capsule which prevents fogging and internal condensation.
