About this project

Our as yet unnamed product is a custom underwater housing rated down to 100' in salt water for the iPhone 4 & 4s. Design has been tested in real world conditions by Emmy winning National Geographic cameraman Ken Corben, it is ready to manufacture and ship.

Our Kickstarter project is designed to fund the tooling required for manufacturing while offering the product at nearly half off to the Kickstarter community.
MSRP is $699 and includes housing, lanyard, Teak handles and a custom hard case. Kickstarter price is $399.

Enjoying your pool with the family, snorkeling on vacation, or diving the reefs and wrecks around the world? You already know the power of the new iPhone camera and the memories it can bring back to life!

Our dive housing will allow anyone with an iPhone 4 or 4s to capture these precious and incredible moments that would otherwise be economically out of reach for this quality of HD video underwater. The alternatives to capture HD video at any depth below a kitchen sink run thousands to tens of thousands of dollars! Ken knows, he does it for a living. You can achieve the same results Hollywood spends millions to produce in the palm of your hand.

Now you have the power to capture your own underwater footage down to 100' in depth, and it can't get any easier! You have it right in your own pocket. Coupled with our Professional limited edition iPhone underwater housing code named "Blackwater" you’ll be making history!

Our device features the same technology found in larger professional cinematic housings costing over ten thousand dollars.

  • Mechanically activated record/stop button with an eight lip seal

In the pool or the ocean off of the Galapagos, we get your iPhone HD camera working for you like Ken Corben!

Please note: CA sales tax will be added for CA shipping addresses. Ground or USPS shipping is included to US addresses. International shipping is additional

As we receive questions from our backers we will try to answer them quickly below.

*Order two or more to the same address in the continental U.S. and the shipping is on us!


  • Depends, we do not have the iPhone 5 spec's so there is no way of telling. If it ends up the same size and has the same feature locations then most likely yes. If it turns out to be smaller we could introduce a spacer.

  • At the moment not yet. Plans are in the works to accommodate these and other possible models.

  • The most economical method is the postal service. The estimates we are getting are about $60 for express mail to Australia. This is typical for spherically opposed locations around the world. Final shipping cost will be determined by speed and carrier chosen by the our backer.


    Last updated:
  • Right now everything is geared towards introducing the best model to date and maintaining continuity for economies sake. It could be possible to introduce various accessories as we grow no doubt.


    Last updated:
  • You can easily place a very thin red filter over the lens port inside the housing prior to dropping the camera in place. Thin like film thickness.

    Last updated:
  • Absolutely. We will honor every top tiered backer of $399 + shipping for the housing, even if we do not reach our funding level of 20k. If this is the case you will have to contact us through our website and mention you had backed the project at the $399 level.

    Last updated:
  • The shutter / record button, which is the up volume button on the 4s and on the 4 with the latest firmware upgrade, is triggered mechanically. Choice of still or video right now is chosen before the dive. We do have a touch screen button in development that will allow switching between video and stills. This clear back cover will be interchangeable with the current one in the future.
