New SeaLife DC1200 Underwater Camera Redefines Simplicity
Mystical sea creatures, vibrant colorful reefs, or haunting wrecks from a bygone era, the new DC1200 is the camera to catch them all. SeaLife's 12-megapixel camera combines diver-friendly design and four underwater color modes, for sharp, colorful pictures underwater or on land.
SeaLife eliminated the typical button cluster on the back of the camera, in favor of five thumb operated "piano key" controls. The large shutter button extends forward with a fingertip-control lever that allows scrolling through menus or zooming in and out without releasing your grip from the camera. This "Central Command Lever" and the "Piano Keys" are making great underwater pictures and videos easier than ever before.
The SeaLife DC1200 Underwater Camera will be available at dive shops nationwide in May 2010 at a suggested list price of $499.95. The DC1200 Elite, which includes the popular Digital ProFlash, Wide Angle lens and Travel case, retails for $899.95.
SeaLife Cameras is a leading manufacturer in digital dive cameras, with over 25 years of experience designing durable waterproof cameras to the specific needs of outdoor and watersports enthusiasts.
