SeaLife will unveil its latest digital underwater camera, the DC2000, at the DEMA (Dive Equipment & Marketing Association) trade show. As SeaLife’s most advanced underwater camera to date, the DC2000 includes a full-featured waterproof inner camera and an ergonomic, precisely designed and matched 200 foot (60 m) underwater housing. The DC2000 is equipped with a variety of automatic imaging modes for budding photographers and an abundance of full manual-exposure controls for advanced users.
Ideal for low-light environments, the DC2000 uses a Sony® 1-inch back-illuminated 20MP CMOS image sensor to produce sharp stills and full HD videos with 1080p @ 60 frames per second. There are four underwater modes with built-in underwater color corrections to select from: dive, snorkel, external light, and external flash, making external color filters unnecessary. Additionally, 25 Land-Scene modes are available for shooting topside. With an auto focus of 4 inches (10 cm) to infinity and an ultra-fast shutter response time of 0.1 second, you’ll never miss a fast-moving shot. The DC2000 includes a 7-element fully multi-coated optical-grade aspheric lens and a focal length of 11.6 mm (film equivalent 31 mm). To increase field of view, SeaLife offers a Wide Angle Fisheye Lens (SL975) for an approximate diagonal shooting angle of 110 degrees, or a Compact Wide Angle Lens (SL970) for a shooting angle of 90 degrees.
The DC2000 includes a continuous-burst shooting mode, time lapse, GIF, and pre-shooting. In addition, the camera utilizes optical image stabilization to reduce unwanted camera shake. Use the intuitive dial to select from eigh shooting modes, including manual shutter and 17 aperture settings, from f1.8 to f11. With the option to shoot in JPEG, and RAW (Adobe .dng), the DC2000 offers endless photo-editing options.
The rubber over-molded polycarbonate construction of the DC2000 features an ergonomic design and comfortable handling, with the hard-shell exterior housing’s dimensions of 5.9”H x 4”W x 3”D (149 mm x 102 mm x 81 mm). The housing includes a flash link optical cable adapter that easily connects to one or two external flash or strobes. The wide “Piano Keys” control all the camera’s essential functions, making it easy to operate with or without dive gloves. The DC2000 inner camera includes a built-in flash, a 3-inch 920k hi-resolution color LCD screen, and an intuitive and user-friendly feature navigation menu. The inner camera dimensions are 2.6”H x 4.6”W x 1.4”D (67 x 116 x 36 mm) and is waterproof down to 60 feet (18 m).
The included 1130mAh 3.7V ion removable battery will power the camera for over two hours. It’s easy to charge the battery by attaching the USB cable into the camera’s USB port and wall charger. The DC2000 offers 80mb of internal memory and is expandable to 128gb of memory with micro-SD, micro-SDHD, micro-SDXC, or UHS-1 memory cards.
The DC2000’s built-in Wi-Fi wirelessly connects the camera to any iOS and Android smart phone or tablet using the free Link123 Plus app. Without using a laptop or computer, you can directly preview and download pictures/videos from the camera to your smart device and instantly share your diving adventure with friends and family.
The DC2000 is expandable with SeaLife’s powerful Sea Dragon underwater LED lights, Flash and Flex-Connect® arms, grips, trays and accessories. Flex-Connect trays, grips and accessories mount together in seconds for easy set-up and disassemble equally as fast for washing or travel.
