The App Playback mode shows full size photos & videos w/vertical thumbnail strip to easily locate your images. Videos start playing automatically when selected. All files are also saved to iPhone camera roll. The SportDiver housing automatically connects to your iPhone & the SportDiver app using Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) 5 wireless technology. No cables or buttons touch the phone & offers ultra-low power consumption for both the phone & the housing which is powered by two AAA batteries (alkaline or NiMH) that last over 50 hours of continuous use.
For enhanced imaging results, a removable underwater color-correction filter is included w/the SportDiver which restores natural underwater colors. The filter easily attached or removes underwater & includes a safety tether to prevent loss. The SportDiver housing features triple 1/4-20 tripod mounts which mounts to any light or light tray w/standard tripod threads such as SeaLife's range of Sea Dragon underwater photo/video lights. For the phone's safety & protection, the SportDiver has a sturdy holding spring & rubber grip tabs that securely hold the iPhone in place & add shock-protection. The SportDiver has dual leak alarms which include an internal moisture alarm & a vacuum pressure alarm which alert the diver w/on-screen warnings, audio & LED signal in the unlikely event the waterproof seal is compromised & there's a loss of housing pressure or moisture is detected. Leak Alarm pressure indicator: Flashing green when vacuum pressure has not been applied; Solid green when vacuum pressure is okay; Flashing red if a leak is detected. Power / Wireless connection status: Flashing blue when powered on & not wirelessly connected; Solid blue when powered on & wirelessly connected. The door of the SportDiver is sealed w/a TPE O-ring & a robust cam-lock sealing latch that easily & securely locks waterproof door. To prevent interior fogging from residual moisture, the SportDiver uses the anti-fogging agent Moisture Muncher capsule which prevents fogging & internal condensation.
