SeaLife DC1400 Underwater Camera
Depth tested to 200 feet (60 meters), the DC1400 incorporates a feature-packed, premium high-resolution underwater camera with a new design that redefines simplicity and ease of use. The DC1400’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.
A fingertip “Central Command” lever is located in front of the DC1400’s large shutter button to allow scrolling through various menus. It also controls the 5X optical zoom without releasing your grip from the camera. The Super Macro Auto Focus lens will focus down to within one inch from the subject. The camera’s external polycarbonate body is rubber-armored for sure-grip handling and shock-protection in all conditions.
The DC1400 offers six specially designed underwater modes, making it possible for anyone to take sharp, colorful underwater pictures. The DC1400’s 1-2-3 graphic on-screen guide takes the guess work out of setting up the camera for great pictures on land or underwater.
The DC1400 functions just as remarkably topside as it does below. Its slim, pocket-sized inner camera can be removed quickly from its rubber-armored waterproof housing for your land adventures. Twenty-seven scene modes—from Auto to Shutter or Aperture Priority to Smile Detection to Landscape to Night Scene to Fireworks—provide optimal programming to take perfect images and videos in any condition. In Anti-Shake mode, the DC1400’s new Optical Image Stabilization CCD-shift technology reduces image blur caused by hand movement on land.
The large 3-inch LCD screen on the DC1400 allows flawless framing and easy on-camera viewing above or below the waterline. A Spy Mode autonomously operates the camera to take a continuous string of images at your custom-preset time intervals, so you can capture the perfect shot of hard-to-photograph subjects.
The DC1400 is guaranteed to be waterproof to a depth of 200 feet. Complete with its rugged housing, it measures just 3.7 X 5.3 X 2.8 inches (HxWxD), and it weighs less than 18 ounces. Its rechargeable lithium battery will power the camera for approximately one hour of continuous HD video—perfect for a two-tank dive—or for in excess of 200 photographs. Spare batteries are available. The camera system includes 20 MB of built-in memory, and an SD/SDHC Card can be added for up to 32 GB of memory.
The SeaLife DC1400 Underwater Camera (item # SL720) is available at dive and photo shops nationwide at a suggested list price of $529.95. To locate an authorized SeaLife dealer near you, visit www.sealife-cameras.com/dealer/index.html.
