ValsTech, Inc. is providing customers with an underwater camera housing that affords its users the possibility of creating professional-grade deep water photos and videos with their smartphone. Their LenzO™ underwater housing is designed for the iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus. The product is 100-meter depth rated and tested—consumers can trust that the hand-assembled products have each been pressure tested for 20 minutes at a depth of 100 meters. This depth rating means that ValsTech’s LenzO™ design allows iPhone cameras to be safely used during scuba diving and snorkeling.
The innovative design of the LenzO™ is such that it enables users to quickly navigate a wide range of image possibilities. It includes shallow and deep filters built into the port and swing arms for quick access to their phone’s native camera app. The camera app’s advanced features are also available to users in deep water with ValsTech’s underwater housing.
The company provides a unique array of features to ensure that image quality accompanies the depth capability. The ergonomically designed controls aim to ensure that not only does the product have a complementary relationship with the native iPhone camera app but that all users are able to easily take full advantage of the increased picture- and video-taking possibilities. The optical dome lens is designed for both underwater and land use, aiming to ensure that image quality is enhanced with the LenzO™ regardless of environmental conditions.
ValsTech was founded in 2012 by Valentins (Val) Ranetkins, the founder of Aqua Vision Systems, Inc. and Amphibico, Inc., two companies that were among the pioneers in underwater camera technologies. Under Val’s directiom Aqua Vision Systems developed the “Aquatica,” a revolutionary underwater housing used for the underwater photography of Natural Geographic Magazine and by many famous underwater photographers.
Val continued his success at Amphibico, producing innovative underwater video products and developing features that pushed the boundaries of the underwater camera industry: electronic camera controls, underwater push buttons, interchangeable optics, unique housing latches, underwater microphones & hydrophones and foolproof underwater sealing systems.
The founder and the ValsTech team offer 80 plus years of combined experience on both the design and manufacturing side of housing products. Their experience is now being directed toward providing the same professional-grade technology—along with the creative, entertainment and documentary potential that comes with it—to all smartphone users.
The ValsTech team is committed through their unique underwater housings to the goal of empowering smartphone users with the tools to take full advantage of the new trends in underwater photography. Anyone with a smartphone and a ValsTech housing will be able to capture quality images not only deep underwater but in all aquatic and otherwise environmentally harsh environments.
underwater smartphone housings have been featured at the world’s largest
maritime trade shows including Germany’s Boot Dusseldorf and the annual
exhibition hosted by DEMA, the Diving Equipment & Marketing
