Product Specifications

The new SeaLife ReefMaster DC100 Digital Camera is the world's first dedicated underwater digital camera. It is rated to 100 feet and can be set to three different exposure programs: Land, Sea & Sea with external flash mode. The one-button operation makes it easy to use underwater, just aim and shoot. With virtually no shutter lag, the ReefMaster Digital allows users to capture even the most illusive marine life instantly, without having any worry about anticipating your subject's next move. The large 1.8 inch LCD makes aiming easy, the rubber armored outer housing fits just right in your hands. The instant review and delete function practically guarantees great pictures on the spot. With 8 MB on board memory, three resolution levels, TTL exposure control, macro ability the ReefMaster Digital makes the same clear, crisp images on land as it does at sea. Get long two-hour battery life when using SeaLife 1800 mAh rechargeable NiMH batteries. The DC100 can also be expanded with all SeaLife accessories; macro kit, external flash and wide angle lens. The perfect gift for the warm-water tropical vacationer in your family! SeaLife has customized the camera's firmware to compensate for the difficult light conditions that naturally occur as divers plunge deep below the water's surface. In the "Sea" mode, the shutter speed and aperture adjustments also help compensate for the low lighting conditions common in underwater photography. Setting the camera to the "Sea" mode will allow divers and snorkelers to produce exceptional digital images of the fish, coral and shipwreck artifacts they discover during their underwater forays. The on-camera flash helps illuminate objects well below the surface, but for photographers who wish to produce more professional results, the ReefMaster Digital is compatible with SeaLife's External Flash unit. No sync cord necessary, because the External Flash is a slave unit activated via the on-cameras flash. To prevent early activation, users set the camera to the "External Flash" mode, which de-activates the digital pre-flash. For underwater photographers who also enjoy making digital photography of on-land subjects, the ReefMaster Digital offers a separate operation mode for just that purpose. Simply remove the camera from its clear waterproof housing and set it to "Land" mode. This setting allows the ReefMaster Digital to function as a traditional digital camera.
