Apple and Oceanic now Enter the Dive World with the new Iphone Underwater Camera and Dive Computer

Hollywood Divers has been Using IPhones to shoot underwater since model Apple - i Phone 3.

The results from those dives long ago were less than spectacular. It all turned around with iPhone 6 and Watershot housings a few years back. Then Came other housing models, Sealife, Kraken, Lenzo, Nauticam, Aquatech and Dive Volk are some of the models that I and many of our dive team have experimented with over the last Decade.
 Now we are seeing these Smartphone underwater housings expand capabilities not only as fully functional image capture devices, but as dive gauges and now even diving computers. The really cool thing about this technology is that you still can’t surf tik tok or make a phone call underwater ………yet.
 While we are tech, dive nerds ourselves, we hope that we don’t have to listen to others on the phone yapping away underwater. 

Our Best Seller in the Underwater Compact Camera Category has been the Kraken Underwater Smart Housing and recently they hit a major home run with their new Lithium Batteried V2 KRH-07. It is a huge improvement for iPhone Underwater Image Capture Community.

The New Apple Oceanic Iphone housing is bound to cause a stir in the dive computer world. This device will pair up to your Apple Iphone then it will allow the phone “In paid Subscription Mode” to be used as Video Camera, Stills Camera and a Dive Computer.

See all The Features of the Oceanic Apple Iphone Camera / Dive Computer Device.

Record Media Files in RAW and Compressed Formats
The Oceanic+ Dive Housing offers professionals the ability to capture media files in both RAW and compressed formats, ensuring optimal evaluation and control of images. This feature caters to the needs of experienced divers who require high-quality, unprocessed files for post-dive analysis and editing. By recording in RAW format, divers can retain all the original data captured by the camera sensor, enabling them to make precise adjustments and enhancements during the post-processing stage. Compressed formats, on the other hand, provide a convenient option for divers who prefer smaller file sizes without compromising overall image quality. With the Oceanic+ Dive Housing, divers have the flexibility to choose between these formats, empowering them to achieve their desired visual outcomes.
White Point Correction for Depth-Adaptive Adjustments
The Oceanic+ Dive Housing incorporates white point correction technology, which automatically adjusts based on the depth of the dive. This innovative feature enhances image accuracy by accounting for the varying color temperature and light conditions experienced underwater. The Oceanic+ Dive Housing offers multiple presets that cater to different diving depths, ensuring accurate color representation throughout the dive. By applying depth-dependent white point correction, divers can achieve optimal image recording to facilitate post-dive correction algorithms. This capability results in improved image quality and color fidelity, enabling divers to capture and preserve the true essence of their underwater experiences.
