Sealife SportDiver

SeaLife SportDiver underwater housing for iPhone®

With this SeaLife SportDiver housing you as a diver, snorkeler or swimmer take the most unique underwater photos and videos with your own iPhone! At home in the pool in the backyard, on the beach or at the dive site on the dike. But also at your holiday destination you capture the most beautiful images up to a depth of 40 metres.

Suitable for:
The SportDiver can be used in combination with the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, Xr, Xs, Xs Max, 11, 11 Pro Max and SE (2nd generation). IPhone 12 series should also be suitable for the SportDiver. At the time of writing these were not yet available for a final test. The introduction of the SportDiver for Android smartphones is planned for early 2021.

The rugged housing is made of polycarbonate, stainless steel, aluminium and optical grade glass. And although the SportDiver casing is "Heavy Duty", it is not heavy, weighing only 641 grams. It is lightweight for travel and has almost neutral buoyancy in water, depending on which model iPhone is used.

IPhone as a creative photo camera:
The SportDiver is easy to hold and easy to use. It has a large shutter button and accessible control buttons on the back for easy operation even with dive gloves on. Creative snorkelers and divers can use the optional advanced settings of the camera app to take their photos or videos. Such as: zoom, exposure (EV), auto / manual focus, white balance, colour tint, lens selection, RAW + JPEG mode, live photo and background blur (on available iPhone models).

No risk, double safety:
Safety for your phone above all! The SportDiver has a DOUBLE LEAK ALARM, including an internal moisture alarm and a vacuum pressure alarm, which warns you with an on-screen display, an audio signal and an LED signal in the unlikely event that the housing does show some form of leakage and moisture is detected in the housing or if there is a loss of pressure in the housing. The included vacuum pump is used to vacuum the housing. The built-in pressure gauge in the housing shows a display on the IPhone screen to make sure that you bring the housing to the right vacuum. Then you just have to wait for the vacuum system to indicate that no pressure change has taken place and you know that you can take the set underwater with you with peace of mind. The housing is sealed with a TPE O-ring and a robust cam-lock seal that easily and securely seals the waterproof door. To prevent the inside of the housing from fogging up due to humidity, it is recommended that you use the anti-fogging capsule "Moisture Muncher" to minimise humidity and prevent internal condensation as much as possible.

Free SportDiver App:
The SportDiver housing is used in conjunction with the free SeaLife SportDiver camera app iOS 12 and above. < App: SportDiver> (Unlike other smartphone-housing apps, there are no annoying in-app purchases or ads). You can easily switch between photo and video mode. The SportDiver app uses the iPhone camera technology that comes with every iPhone® model.

Photos and videos are immediately available:
The app play mode shows photos and videos in full size with a vertical thumbnail strip for easy scrolling through the images. Videos are automatically played when selected. All files are also stored on the iPhone movie roll. The SportDiver housing automatically connects to your iPhone and the SportDiver app via Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) 5 wireless technology. No cables or buttons connect to the phone. The SportDiver has an extremely low power consumption for both the phone and the housing, which is powered by two AAA batteries that last more than 50 hours when used continuously.

Includes colour correction filter:
For better image results, in tropical blue waters, the SportDiver comes with an interchangeable colour correction filter that restores natural underwater colours. The filter can easily be attached or removed underwater and is equipped with a safety cord to prevent loss.

Optional external lighting:
The SportDiver housing has three 1/4-20 tripod mounts that can be mounted on any light or base plate with standard tripod threads, such as SeaLife's own series of Sea Dragon underwater photo/video lights. SeaLife also offers the combination SportDiver with Sea Dragon underwater lighting, the SL401 "SportDiver Pro 2500 Set".

Universal fit:
For the safety and protection of the phone, the SportDiver is equipped with a spring system and rubber grips that keep the iPhone® firmly in place and protect it from shocks. This also makes it possible to easily change the model of the IPhone in the casing.
The delivery of the SportDiver iPhone housing is planned for November 2020. The introduction of the SportDiver for Android smartphones is planned for early 2021.
