SeaLife is known as a great underwater camera. Pink is known as the color of Breast Cancer Awareness. Bring the two together and you get a sharp and impressive looking camera coupled with a good cause. Introducing the DC1400 Limited Edition Pink from SeaLife Underwater Cameras.
Divers around the world love the SeaLife lineup for its durability and great images. Those with a special interest in the working of Breast Cancer Awareness should take note of this new camera, coming out in September for a limited time, and that SeaLife plans to donate $5 from each camera purchased to a leading breast cancer research charity.
Reading the lineup of technical offerings from this attractive looking camera, one is immediately impressed with what are likely to be some nice underwater shots. According to their press release, the DC1400 Limited Edition Pink will allow you to take either 720p video or 14 megapixel high resolution images. Remove the tough outer housing and you have a compact point & shoot to use on land.
It all blows me away that just a few years ago we were all contemplating the move to digital, now this.
As digital technology continues to march forward, so too do the options and easy-of-use additions. SeaLife includes this in their information:
Depth tested to 200 feet (60 meters), the DC1400 Limited Edition Pink incorporates a feature-packed, premium high-resolution underwater camera with a new design that redefines simplicity and ease of use. The DC1400 Limited Edition Pink’s five large primary control keys eliminate the confusing button cluster of a traditional camera to provide simple one-handed operation in any environment—even with gloves on.
And just a couple years ago I was looking for a cheap P&S for the pool.
There are 27 scene modes from Auto to Shutter to Smile Detection to Night Scenes. That other feature is Anti-Shake – not Anti-Shark like my dyslexic eyes first thought and found to be an amazing if not curious feature – along with the new Optical Image Stabilization CCD- shift technology to reduce image blur caused by hand movement.
Weighing in at less than 18 ounces its also lightweight for diving and not wearing you down. Waterproof to 200 feet, you can get it to the best reefs you’re diving. The rechargeable lithium battery should get you about 200 photos based on their info, and spares can be bought separately.
This is a limited edition camera (Item # SL720P) available in September 2012. With a suggested list price of $529.95, that includes the wrist strap. It is a limited production lineup so they are recommending you contact your local SeaLife dealer to preorder.
We have not had the chance to try this new camera, but it looks nice, helps a worthy cause and if you’re in the market, SeaLife is one our research says should be at the top of your consideration list. ** We have not used any SeaLife cameras to date, but are impressed with our research including talking with SeaLife users. If we do have the chance, we will review right here on Rori Travels Florida.
