The SeaLife SportDiver is a compact and lightweight underwater housing for Apple's iPhone. The SportDiver housing will allow divers to take photos and video with their iPhone down to 130 feet or 40 meters. 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 1.5 pounds (641 grams), and offers almost neutral buoyancy in water depending on which iPhone model is used.

The SportDiver is easy to hold and offers a large shutter lever and rear control buttons for easy operation. Snorkelers and Divers can get more creative with their photos or video shot by using advanced camera settings.

The SportDiver housing includes the free SeaLife SportDiver camera app for iOS 12 and up. You can easily switch between photo and video mode. The App Playback mode shows full-size photos and videos with a vertical thumbnail strip to easily locate your images. The SportDiver housing automatically connects to your iPhone and the SportDiver app using Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) 5 wireless technology.

For enhanced imaging results, a removable underwater color-correction filter is included with the SportDiver. The filter is easily attached or removed underwater and includes a safety tether to prevent loss.

The SportDiver housing features triple 1/4-20 tripod mounts which mount to any light or light tray with standard tripod threads.

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. To prevent interior fogging from residual moisture, the SportDiver uses the anti-fogging agent “Moisture Muncher” capsule which prevents fogging and internal condensation.
