How To Live Stream Underwater Like A Pro
If you have used a live stream platform like Periscope then you might have wondered if you can live stream underwater, well, the answer is yes. There is a quick solution that involves using a water resistant housing by a San Diego based company called Water Shot called the Water Shot Pro. Unfortunately, you cannot submerge the housing in the water while live streaming because if you do the phone will disconnect from the livestream so what you have to do us leverage the dome lens that Water Shot makes to in order to submerge just the lens and not the housing like I do in the video below that I took at the Birch Aquarium in San Diego.
There is a way to submerge the phone and get a signal under the water, and I have done that before, it is just not what I am going to talk about in this post (I will post at a later date on how to live stream with the phone fully submerged). The great thing about the Water Shot Pro housing is that it is submergible down to almost 200 feet and the dome lens is great because it allows you to get those amazing shots of above water and below water at the same time. Watch the attached video to see how the Water Shot Pro case works and how the dome works with it as well.
I have negotiated a discount from Water Shot of 10% on your order if you order directly from them as long as you use the discount code “periscoperyan”.
If you choose to purchase the product from Amazon then I have given you some of the links to the products that I recommend below and if you want to learn more about gadgets for live streaming then visit PeriscopeRyan.com and follow me on Periscope and Snapchat @ryansteinolfson 🙂
