The Watershot Underwater Camera Housing for iPhone 4 / 4S is a waterproof case enabling you to capture photos and video beneath the water's surface with your iPhone 4 or 4S. It has a depth rating of 131' (40 m).

The housing provides access to most camera functions via mechanical controls and the free Watershot App, available at the App Store and on iTunes. This app maximizes basic and advanced camera capabilities, including GPS overlays and social media sharing functions. The case is constructed from durable polycarbonate.

To restore colors that get absorbed underwater and enhance contrast, you can use optional external color correction filters. The Magenta Filter for green water and the Red Filter for blue water come with an M32 thread to easily mount onto the lens bezel of the housing. Filters can be installed and removed underwater.

You can attach optional accessory lenses to the glass lens port via the lens bezel. The housing is equipped with a built-in universal tripod mount. The optional Pro Mount adapter enables the mounting of many GoPro accessories (not included). An adjustable lanyard is included.

      Just stick with gopro

      By JJ

      from NYC

      Comments about Watershot Underwater Camera Housing for iPhone 4 / 4S:

      The housing is great but the app is terrible. Video will keep recording forever if you run out of memory with no ability to save it afterwards even if you clear up space. Consistently switches to phone mode, slow to take pictures, unable to dismiss low battery or other warnings - you think they'd program for something like that. Sitting in snorkel gear right now wishing I had just sprung for a gopro. Lost a number of videos because of the apps terrible UI.

      Comments about Watershot Underwater Camera Housing for iPhone 4 / 4S:

      Got the housing delivered on the day before Christmas ( thanks B&H ) just in time for my trip to Costa Rica. The housing is simple to use, well constructed and worked flawlessly on scuba dives to 70 feet and I would not hesitate to take it deeper. It also added the ability to catch my son surfing from an in the water perspective and video dolphins as the boat was going full speed. This is not professional equipment but well worth the price. The only two drawbacks would be no on off or zoom capability.

        If you're planning to use your phone as a camera, this case will work for you.
        If you plan to use your phone as a PHONE, forget it. There is NO WAY of answering a call unless the phone is constantly on, which will drain you bettery in less then 2 hours, because there is no way to use the "slide to unlock" feature, no way to use the internet, because you can't get to the touch screen, and no way to check email.
        I'm not planning to do any diving. This case was supposed to be used around, but not in water, so a good old Ziplock bag will do just fine.

          Casing works. Hard to open at times, but I would rather that it is this way, as the product is leak proof as advertised.

          What doesn't work is the pathetic APP you may choose to install on your phone, in order to have function of all the buttons which comes with the case.
          It crashes constantly, and I had to use the regular photo icon which comes with the iPhone.

          Comments about Watershot Underwater Camera Housing for iPhone 4 / 4S:

          Easy to use. Solid construction. Some drawbacks like power consumption and viewing the screen and icons, but over all a great housing and app.

          I went snorkleing for the first time and took it with me. Took great photos above and below the water including videos. Even recorded sound well enough to pick up some sort of dophin or fish sounds that I did not hear at the time.

            Works perfect for keeping the water out, the lens is more or less a window but it doesn't add or take away from the shot. I haven't filmed in deep water yet, but expect to charge your battery after a dive or two.

              I'm very sastified with this case, did some scuba diving & plenty of snorkeling and had no issues related to the case. I did have some frustration with certain iphone features that normally don't bother me that make it difficult to use the case to the maximum effectiveness. As an example, I couldn't figure out how to keep the 20% low battery warning from popping; once that happens you can't take any more pictures without opening the case.
