Our experience with the Sea life DC1200 Elite kit was nothing less than phenomenal. The camera far outweighed our expectations. I know the pictures you see in scuba magazines are taken by $4,000 cameras; however I have taken many pictures with the DC1200 that include the same level of detail the magazines publish. The only difference is even though my wife and I are seasoned divers, we are new to underwater photography. I recommend this camera to anyone new to taking underwater photos who wants to capture memories just as they see them in the water. Bottom line is this camera takes professional pictures but has a consumer friendly price tag on it.
I am fascinated by these unique, anemone-like, sessile creatures. They are usually found in coral or rock crevices making them challenging subjects to photograph. I have been trying for sometime to shoot them from every conceivable angle, with just the right strobe setting. For this photo the strobe was positioned over the camera lens, with flash brightness control knob dialed to second lowest setting, camera was set to macro, zoomed half way, without use of wide angle lens. I finally got it right, thanks to the DC1200! The more I use this camera, the more I love it!
Hi, I am a PADI assistant instructor who lives in the UK. This photograph was taken on vacation late in an afternoon at Abu Dabab Marsa, Marsa Alam, Egypt in early July 2010, using the DC1000 camera and a wide angle lens. No flash was required, since the light was perfect and the white balance preset was using the blue water parameter from 0 to 8 meters in SeaLife camera. The turtle had just finished eating and was moving away to get some air. If you want to dive with large green turtles, this is the place to visit!
I was diving off Miami Beach on "The Wall" which is in 90 feet of water. My buddies and I were in 80 feet when this 5 foot turtle approached us. He swam along side us for about a minute at a distance of about 4 feet.He seemed curious about us . I captured him on camera with a Sea Life DC1000 with a single flash strobe. I was able to take about 7 pictures of him before he swam off. This was my first close encounter with a turtle in my 27 years of diving.
Having recently received the DC800 as a gift, I finally got a few chances to use it both above and under water. I was impressed with the lack of shutter pause on the camera. I currently use a popular point & shoot for my above water photography. That requires me to hold my finger on the shutter release, wait for what seems like an eternity - when some set of conditions make it happy, it shoots ... maybe. The DC800 felt like it was INSTANT! As impressive as this is above water, underwater it is a genuine pleasure. Also, the automatic color balances tailored for underwater use is fantastic. You just can't get that with an above-water camera in a waterproof case. Thank you SeaLife!
The photography with the DC600 is bottom line phenomenal. When you add a 24mm wide angle lens, it's downright sensational! Colors are absolute even without a strobe. My husband observing a gray sea urchin was featured recently in the travel section of our local newspaper. Thank you SeaLife!
I am a proud owner of three SeaLife camera setups. Karl, the service technician, has worked with me and has always provided excellent customer service. I enjoy my SeaLife camera and find the operation and accessories to be much easier to use and allow me more time to spend on composition. Thanks for making good gear!
