SeaLife Cameras released a free app called “SeaLife Micro Cam” in the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store for their SeaLife Micro HD+ and new Micro 2.0 cameras. The app is found by searching “SeaLife Micro Cam” and is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch running on iOS 6.0 or later and Android devices running on 2.3.3 or higher.
The SeaLife Micro Cam App makes image and video transfer easy by wirelessly bridging the Micro 2.0 or HD+ camera to your smart device. The second option is plugging the Micro HD+ or Micro 2.0 camera into a laptop and transferring files with the camera’s included USB cable and adapter.
After loading the free app onto an iPhone or iPad, the user simply powers on the camera and Wi-Fi function on the SeaLife Micro HD+ or Micro 2.0, and then selects the camera in the Wi-Fi directory. Next, the app is started by selecting the app icon; after that, files are ready to transfer or remote operation may begin.
The SeaLife Micro Cam app allows the user to shoot images above and underwater down to 200 feet and instantly share them by transferring the images and video to their smart device’s camera roll. The app also features a live-streaming view where users can remotely capture and playback images and videos within a distance of 225 feet from the camera (above the water’s surface).
Additionally, users can instantly share and upload their pictures and videos with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Dropbox and email.
The app includes a new feature to personalize the camera’s name (SSID/password) identifying the owner’s specific camera, a feature worth noting since there may be several users of these cameras on your dive boat or resort.
When searching for the app in the iTunes Store, select the “iPhone Only” option.
