SeaLife Splashes with New DC800 Underwater Digital Camera

SeaLife DC800 Underwater Digital Camera

SeaLife has introduced the new DC800 underwater digital camera, an 8-megapixel shooter that can dive down to a depth of 200 feet or 60 meters.

The DC800 includes a wide-angle lens with 4x optical zoom that can auto focus up to 2 inches (5 cm) and features a video mode, allowing users to capture high-resolution digital video with sound.

The new camera features five underwater modes. The Sea mode exposure program has three UW color correction settings (Oceans Blue, Oceans Green, Rivers/Lakes) so the camera takes sharp colorful pictures, no matter what color water you’re diving in, according to SeaLife. Two new external flash mode settings allow users more flexibility and creativity when taking photos with the SeaLife Digital Pro Flash accessory.

The bulk you see is actually the underwater housing for the camera. When you’re done shooting under the sea, just slide it out and you have a compact and stylish camera to whip out at the beach party.
