Whether you’re a novice or a professional photographer, Watershot housing gives you the opportunity to take your phone into the surf and capture photos that can instantly be shared with friends and family. Their completely waterproof case shields your phone from wear, tear, shock and pressure. With Watershot housing your phone can withstand the elements while surfing or diving. All models are able to attach to any tripod or GoPro accessory. In addition, Watershot offers a free App that is needed to operate the camera. Their current line of products include housing devices for iPhone 4S, 5 and 5S and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Before you head out into the surf, you must download the free App that works alongside your water housing. Because you will not be able to use the touch screen in the water this app simplifies and enhances you photo and video capabilities. Options such as rapid fire, switching to front and back camera, GPS, and social media sharing are all included in the App.
If you’re not familiar with using water housing products before, I highly recommend watching Watershot’s YouTube tutorials. Their team of professionals make it easy to understand your water housing, setup and detailed instructions on how to use the App.
Watershot gives the average person a chance to take quality photos without breaking the bank on expensive custom made water housings or opting out for cheaper, less durable water cases.
