Why stick to shooting on land when you can get some amazing photographs underwater with your iPhone? Newer iPhones may be more water compatible, but there are always ways to shoot deeper and make those watery snapshots absolute perfection. These cases can take you — and your iPhone — out of your comfort zone and into deep blue. Here are the best cases for underwater photography.
HAWEEL Max Underwater Housing case
The HAWEEL Max Underwater Housing case is an iPhoneography accessory that provides 360-degree protection, allowing you to dive up to a whopping 130-feet so you can capture crystal clear images at depths other cases wish they could dive to. It’s designed to be able to attach to a monopod, tripod, or stabilizer, and the camera-like design turns your iPhone into more of a point-and-shoot device for easy shooting.
Best for most
ProShot Waterproof iPhone case
The ProShot Waterproof iPhone case is a deep-diving iPhone photography case that allows you to capture stunning photography and video up to 50 meters deep. It comes with a floating hand grip and a GoPro mount, meaning that you can connect it to a variety of different handles and attachments for easy and creative shooting no matter how deep you dive.
Catalyst Waterproof Case
The Catalyst Waterproof Case is super slim and sleek for a protective, waterproof case, but it can withstand up to 33 feet of waterproof protection and 6.6 feet of impact protection, too. Though the case has 360-degree protection, you still get easy access to all buttons and ports.
Keep it simple
Vansky Waterproof dry bag
Designed from a premium grade TPU, the Vansky dry bag can handle a ton of wet conditions — whether that’s jogging in the rain or playing by the pool — but it’s also great for snapping photos and video underwater. The thin layer that protects your iPhone is clear enough to allow distortion-free photos, while the armband and wrist strap make a decent grip for holding your iPhone underwater.
The Hitcase Splash is an incredibly rugged case that can go up to 10 feet deep and has a reliable drop-proof rating of 6 feet. The case also has a variety of lenses you can shoot with, like a wide angle, superwide, and macro lenses, so you can get creative with your watery snapshots.
LifeProof FRE Series Waterproof case
Lifeproof your iPhone with the LifeProof FRE SERIES Waterproof case and you’ll be able to capture underwater memories with the click of a button. This water and snow proof case can be fully submerged in two meters of water for up to an hour, making it perfect for filming a romp at the beach with friends, an underwater adventure while on vacation, or even you and your siblings doing handstands at your pool.
Dive deep and shoot like a pro
The HAWEEL Max Underwater Housing case isn’t only incredibly durable and reliable, but also allows you to dive up to 130-feet deep, meaning you can capture your images and your video at depths your regular iPhone couldn’t even dream of. Not only that, but it’s a really sharp looking case, too.
Maybe you want something a bit more affordable and less bulky: the LifeProof FRE Series Waterproof case is a brightly colored, beautifully designed iPhone photography case that can be fully submerged in water or snow for an hour, making it ideal for a variety of different photography adventures.
