The Best GoPro Alternative. Filming Starfish Underwater on a Phone with a SwimCell Waterproof Case.

Filming Starfish Underwater on a Phone with a SwimCell Waterproof Case.

We're lucky enough to be in Bocas del Toro in Panama at the moment and despite the fact that it's rainy season we had one day of glorious sunshine so we hopped in a taxi and went up to the top of the main island to find ourselves in Paradise.

Bocas Del Toro

The special thing about this area is it's known for having starfish all over the sandy ocean floor. We mistakenly thought we were at Playa Estrellla which was a few beaches over, but here just a couple of meters from the shore we got up close and personal with a beautiful sea star. Of course we didn't touch it but it was far too beautiful not to take some photos and video underwater.

Using a Samsung S5 and a neon yellow SwimCell waterproof phone case (£13.99) we made you this little video to show you how easy it is to capture an underwater video on your phone. This just proves that you don't need to buy a GoPro you can use a SwimCell waterproof case as a GoPro alternative. And the best thing is your photos and videos are ready to upload as soon as you can get online.

And if you don't believe this was filmed on a Samsung phone here's another video to prove it.
