good when it works, but very buggy

using this with an iphone 13 pro and a kraken KRH05 housing. when it works it’s awesome, but frequently when i’m underwater the preview screen will freeze and i won’t be able to take photos. also, the temperature gauge is wrong and even though my phone is in metric units, the app still shows depth and temperature in fahrenheit and feet.

Great Alternative for the SeaLife SportDiver Housing

I was using the manufacturer app, but was disappointed with the sync speed, limited frame rates and mandatory waiting time between lens changes. Deep Photo syncs almost immediately, allows 60 FPS shooting and changes lenses very quickly. I had a few questions about the app and the developer was very responsive, often replying the same day. Will be using this as my default app for the SportDiver housing regularly.

Good but some bumps

Edit: dev indicated RAW performance improvements should address lockup and write image performance.
I’m super happy they added the option to skip photo review. The thumb nail is a nice compromise.
App has locked up on me underwater now ios15.1.1 iPhone 13p :(. This is better then the abandonware sea life sport diver and other software companies have dumped out, out least it’s seeing regular updates. Currently shooting on sportdiver housing iPhone 13p. The pressurize and setup is actuary quite a bit snootier and faster then sea life’s proprietary software on the hardware side. I am seeing a reoccurring issue with iOS 15, iPhone 13pro. About every 3rd photo I get a red banner couldn’t write image (or some Verbage like that) across the top and image dose not create. If I restart the app problem seems to go away for a while but obviously that’s no good once in the housing. From a feature perspective: - I would like to be able disable the gallery review. That’s just annoying, it’s much better to just be able to keep shooting. Review is for post dive :). Around here you only get a couple seconds with a subject. - I would like to disable digital zoom entirely or at least lock what macro mode does. Set to only 3x optical zoom for example. Any time you zoom past optical image quality drops dramatically. - I spend WAY to many clicks switching lenses or switching modes. I would prefer to reduce those clicks. Why can’t I set a default preference for always apple raw. Always 4K 60fps or whatever? Why reselect this every time? Who shoots jpeg on a modern device if they don’t have too… - I Find myself constantly toggling between wide and Ultra wide lens because .5 allows for 2mm macro and wide has the 70mm equivalent zoom… this takes way to many clicks. I would like some hold toggles or more configurable defaults to reduce button interactions. - Similar issue with moving between camera and video. It’s way to slow, you get 1 chance to flip a mode when you come up on the octopus and you better not screw if up, time lost on button mashing is frustrating. Add in dry suite gloves for cold water diving hurting punch accuracy… argh! - Mentioned above, but with 13p/m need quick way to toggle macro since auto toggle like in iOS camera app dose not work. But being able to set screen region tight focus is also challenging here given the odd angles for .5 macro. I’m referring to native optical macro not the full zoom mode thing in software now. - capture other meta data, like for kraken/weefine for dive depth, temp time on dive ect. I know it can be written on Jpeg but for raw if could be retained in meta data instead. I’m sure I’m forgetting some stuff both good and bad it’s always really clear when I’m actually on the dive but afterwards it gets a little fuzzier, and there are images to post process… Love to see a road map since it’s reoccurring software license :).

Developer Response ,

Hi,
first about the features... the app supports both JPEG and RAW and macro is in full resolution. You can also manually select lens. Panorama mode like in Camera app is currently not available to developers and we don't think Live Photo is a must have feature for underwater use. The focus peeking is a nice suggestion, we will try to add it. 
Not sure if you are using SeaLife or Divevolk housing, which we do not support. SeaLife housing works well, please check if maybe other app is currently using bluetooth to connect to housing. There can be only one connection.
And about your "nutty expensive review". The app price is set by developer and probably you do not have any idea how much does it cost to make such an app. There is a free trial period so you can test the app fully and then decide if you want to pay for it or not. But giving it one star review because you think it is expensive... 
Best regards
