Sealife ReefMaster DC310 Digital

 

The DC310 makes for a fun, if frustrating introduction to underwater photography. With few frills and a restrictive shutter lag, it takes practise to get the shot you want. Battery life could be better, and the LCD display needs to be a lot brighter and c

I do love this camera.

 

I bought one of these cameras through the military exchange service just before I retired from the USAF. I like it's ease of operation. Changing film is easy, the seal works extremely well and the pictures I have taken have turned out to be very clear....

Product Specifications

Offering more megapixel power (3.3) with a variety of Land & Sea exposure modes, the DC310 helps users capture sharp, richly colored images, whether in low light underwater or in bright conditions on land. Both are now available nationwide at dive and photo retailers, including Ritz Camera. These 3.3 megapixel cameras offer options for every level of diver and snorkeler. For the experienced diver/photographer who wants more control over the camera functions, the DC310, with Advanced-Dive control system, allows users to manipulate resolution, light sensitivity (EV), exposure modes and much more while underwater. Built to provide exceptional control and excellent results in any underwater condition, or even in harsh above-water conditions such as intense sun, the DC310 is fully rubber armored with black cushioned grips, for soft comfort and ease of handling, and are expandable with all SeaLife accessories. This digital is waterproof and rated to a depth of 200 ft. All ReefMaster Cameras are designed for One-Button-Operation and can be set to Land or Sea modes plus two modes that take into account the unique aspects of underwater photography. Both cameras also feature three dedicated underwater external flash modes, allowing for more exposure control when using an external flash.
