Hi I'm new to mernetwork so I don't really know if there is another thread like this but I wanted to know if anyone knows a reliable brand of waterproof iphone cases or pouches for underwater pics for my avatar or profile.:pearl::pearl::pearl::pearl::pearl::pearl: :pearl::pearl:

there are. there's a thing called google. lol

Literally typing "underwater phone case" brings up a huge plethora.

Some are universal some are for specific phones! I know Raven uses one and I know a few underwater photographers who do too

Sometimes I've just used a plastic bag. The Phone's screen Will (most of the time) still react, and the phone will hopefully stay dry!
+ It's cheap :-)

This is really NOT good of you are planning to go deep into the water with the phone though!!!

I use the lifeproof nuud on my iPad, and I know they make an iPhone case as well. It's safe up to 6 feet. It's also shock proof and dust proof, so I use it as my ordinary day to day case as well. I use it for filming in the pool and reading in the tub.

I have a Lifeproof for my Galaxy 3 and it's awesome.

Thank you all so much for your help! :) I guess a life proof case is the winner������������������������

I bought a generic waterproof case on Ebay for like $5 when I had my Galaxy S3. It worked great in my pool-- but no matter how much you spend on the case, close it and throw it in the water, and then take it out 30 minutes later, open it up, and check for any evidence of water inside! You don't want to put your phone in there until you're sure it does its job!

Meronica it would work better if you put paper in there. If any gets wet the case obviously sucks. :/

Just throwing this out there-- you can get a waterproof cameras for about the same price as a life proof case, and you wouldn't be risking your expensive phone. We just get a Fuji finepix and it's great, makes slow- motion movies, too. We got our used off ebay for <$80.



edit- sorry, just saw that you ordered a case. Never mind! :)

That sounds super cool! And I doubt I'll even risk getting my phone wet, even after I test it. Way too risky! I've been looking for a cheaper underwater camera, thanks!
