The SeaLife DC1400 Pro Video Set is a camera and light kit enabling you to capture beautiful still images and HD video--underwater. Consisting of a DC1400 Digital Underwater Camera, an SL980 Photo / Video Light and an SL947 Soft Pro Case, this is a great package to get you started in the world of underwater photography.

The SeaLife DC1400 Underwater Digital Camera is a true amphibian of a camera, working both on-land and beneath the surface. The camera comes inside a rubber overmolded polycarbonate waterproof housing, from which it can be removed for use on-land. Rubber armored and shock-resistant for rough handling and tough environments, the DC1400 boasts a depth rating of 200' (60 m). O-ring lubrication is not required. The camera features a 14 megapixel CCD sensor equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a technology that reduces camera shake caused by hand movement. Select from 6 underwater color modes that give you sharp, colorful photos and HD video under any conditions. There are even 4 built-in digital color correction filters, which help restore colors that tend to get lost beneath the surface.

The 26 mm wide angle lens lets you get closer to your subject and still fit everything in-frame. Enjoy Super Macro Auto focus from 1.0" (2.5 cm) to infinity. You get a grand total of 25x zoom, with 5x optical and 5x digital. The large 3.0" (7.6 cm) LCD screen allows for easy on-camera viewing.

You'll find the controls convenient and easy to use: 5 widespread "piano key" style controls are easily accessible underwater with or without gloves. A large shutter button is also present, as is a fingertip-control lever enabling you to scroll through menus or zoom in and out without releasing your grip from the camera. The simple on screen guide takes the guess work out of setting up your camera. Let the DC1400 do the heavy lifting for you, so all you have to focus on is getting that great shot.

Record continuous High Definition video with sound. Take advantage of Manual shutter and aperture control in Ext Flash mode. Manual White Balance control is available via a short-cut key for fast and easy setting. In Spy mode, the camera automatically shoots continuous pictures at set time intervals. Choose from 27 Land Scene modes, which easily pre-set the camera with the optimal settings for the given scene.

The camera runs on a rechargeable lithium battery. A great optional accessory to add is a SeaLife Digital Pro Flash (SL961) (sold separately). Or, add an additional SL980 Photo / Video Light (extra light sold separately).

The powerful 500 lumen SL980 Photo / Video Light is equally effective for both still image capture and HD video recording. It contains three 3 W Cree XP-G R5 LEDs. One button powers the light on or off and selects light modes, making for extremely easy, user-friendly operation. A quick-release detachable head is ideal for aiming into dark areas and discovering hidden sea creatures!

Take advantage of Flash Cancellation mode and enjoy the luxury of zero hot spots. Depth-tested to 300' (91.4 m), this light can go even deeper beneath the surface than your camera. Choose from a variety of different customized light mode settings. The coiled safety lanyard ensures that you don't lose the light when it's disconnected from its arm, and the rubber hood provides added shock protection against drops and rough handling. The light also includes both standard and extended mounting knobs for attaching 2 lighting accessories.

The included SL947 is a soft, lightweight travel case that offers a simple and convenient transport option for your camera / light kit. The black case features a zipper closure and a shoulder strap.

The sea is waiting to be discovered...so, what are you waiting for?

    Comments about SeaLife DC1400 Pro Video Set:

    Overall this is an awsome camera. However, I do wish that when you are in Video mode you could use the zoom. I figured out a trick, but it is still not real user friendly in that application. So, I would go to still mode, then zoom, then back to video mode and film in that zoom. So, you see you can zoom, but in an inconvienent way, that could cause you to miss that important subject due to the juggling you have to do to zoom. Otherwise, the modes are great. I do think that the light was definitely necessary. It made a huge difference in the color on subjects, however, I recommend two lights, because it seemed like at times you just couldn't get enough like on a subject. I do love that the light diconnected. It helped by letting you light up inside corral and see eels, etc. I will be buying an additional light for the otherside of the camera next dive trip I go on for sure! I want my pics to look more vibrant. I am attaching a couple of pics taken in Tahiti this year May 2012 with my DC 1400. Enjoy. =)
