We’ve all been on a dive boat with someone who has a giant camera setup. And while they may get some great shots, they’re also hauling around that big rig. Underwater photography can be simple and affordable, however — that’s why we love using the SeaLife Micro 2.0 underwater camera. It fits in the palm of your hand, but it’s nonetheless packed with great features. Here, in no particular order, are our top five reasons to love your SeaLife Micro 2.0.
It’s permanently sealed and flood-proof.
You’ve got enough to think about on a dive without worrying about flooding a big camera rig. The SeaLife Micro 2.0 is permanently sealed, which means you won’t have to maintain O-rings or doors and you can focus on the shot. If you’re out on the boat all day, you needn’t worry about the battery either — the Micro 2.0 has a powerful rechargeable battery that’ll last more than three hours, and 32GB or 64GB of internal memory.
You’ll capture stunning photos.
With a 16MP SONY CMOS Image Sensor, the Micro 2.0 captures each and every detail of your photo and video subjects. The adjustable, built-in, 130-degree fisheye lens means photographers can fit everything into one shot. Pair it with a Sea Dragon photo/video/dive light to bring out even more vibrant colors.
You’ll shoot sharp, crisp videos.
The SeaLife Micro 2.0 will leave you lacking nothing when it comes to video quality. Combined with its large image sensor, you can shoot high-definition videos at a resolution of 1080p @ 60fps or 1296p @ 30fps.
The SeaLife Micro 2.0 is Wi-Fi compatible.
We all know it didn’t happen unless it’s on Facebook or Instagram. With the Micro 2.0, you can share your underwater encounters instantly with your friends and family using the free Micro Cam app, available for Apple and Android devices.
It’s packed with great features.
Although it’s only four inches wide, this small camera packs a big punch. The intuitive, easy set-up menu makes selecting your topside or underwater settings hassle-free, so you can spend more time diving and less time looking at the screen. Choose your own settings: ISO, exposure, continuous shooting, upside-down shooting and more.
