SeaLife DC800


Compact underwater camera, great for video shooting as well.

Good depth range and great for underwater video

Camera flash could be bigger

Consumer review by:

I will buy the camera together with the Strobes


Underwater photography is all about lighting. Without extra lighting the picture will be all blue. Sealife has an excellent strobe to go with and they are not expensive but the picture look like taken by a several times more expensive Nikon and Canon...

good flash light system to go with the camera

movie is not as good as other HDDV system (Bonica is a good option)
