Three new SeaLife camera sets combine the DC2000 camera with a light, strobe (or both), which yields impressive underwater imaging results. New sets include the DC2000 Pro Light with the Sea Dragon 2500 COB LED light; DC2000 Pro Flash, which includes the Sea Dragon Flash; and DC2000 Pro Duo, which includes the Sea Dragon Flash and new Sea Dragon 2300 Auto LED Light.
The DC2000 Pro Light includes the new DC2000 camera and sun-like Sea Dragon 2500 COB LED light, which helps bring out stunning underwater colors in your stills and video with a high CRI (color rendering index) of 90. Prolific videographers will find the set especially attractive, and still photographers will be well taken care of with the 2500-lumen light. The set includes a Flex-Connect Grip and Single Tray.
The DC2000 Pro Flash includes the DC2000 camera and Sea Dragon Flash, which produces rich, vibrant images while the included diffuser spreads light out evenly, preventing backscatter. The Sea Dragon Flash easily syncs to the DC2000 and features an Auto Mode that will automatically adjust brightness for optimal exposure. The set includes a Flex-Connect Grip and Single Tray.
The DC2000 Pro Duo
SeaLife’s most versatile set, the DC2000 Pro Duo, comes equipped with the new Sea Dragon 2300 Auto light, Sea Dragon Flash, two Flex-Connect Grips and a Dual Tray. There are also two single trays in case the user wants to use just a light or strobe. The new Sea Dragon 2300 Auto light features 2300 true lumens of brightness across a wide 100-degree beam angle. The Sea Dragon 2300 Auto features an Auto Bright Mode that automatically regulates brightness based on the proximity between the light and object from 2300 to 230 lumens.
Users can easily override the feature by selecting a brightness level of 100 percent, 50 percent, or 25 percent through the main control button. The 2300 Auto also offers the unique “Auto Flash Detect” mode, which powers off the light for two seconds when an external flash is detected. Powered by a rechargeable 7.4 lithium-ion battery, the light burns for a full hour at 100 percent power at constant brightness. Combined with the Sea Dragon Flash and DC2000, the DC2000 Pro Duo is SeaLife’s most versatile set yet.
All three sets are depth rated to 200 feet (60 m) and users can easily expand them with either Sea Dragon or other brands of lights and SeaLife’s Flex-Connect accessories.
SeaLife’s DC2000 can produce sharp stills in JPEG or RAW image formats and full HD 1080p videos. Users can choose from eight modes, which include manual shutter and aperture control from f1.8 to f11 in 17 stops. The inner camera has a built-in flash and is depth rated to 60 feet (18 m). The included housing includes a flash-link adapter that easily syncs an external flash to the camera. With the protective underwater housing, the camera is depth rated to 200 feet (60 m).
The SeaLife DC2000 camera runs $699. The Sea Dragon Pro Flash set is $995; the Sea Dragon 2500 LED Light set is $1,099; and the SeaLife Pro Duo including the Sea Dragon Flash and Sea Dragon 2300 LED Auto Light is $1,399.
