The SeaLife Mini II Elite is a compact, full-featured camera and light set. It consists of a Mini II Digital Underwater Camera, Digital Pro Flash, Mini Wide Angle Lens, and a soft, yellow, lightweight travel case for convenient carrying.
The Digital Pro Flash helps to bring out the colors of your environment. It's usable in full manual mode or, for simpler operation, Auto Mode. The Mini Wide Angle Lens increases your field of view by 33%! The Mini II takes on a new identity when paired with these accessories, yet still maintains its status as a small, durable digital camera for your beneath- and above-the-surface adventures.
The Mini II is a self-contained underwater camera, with no housing, that features a depth rating of 130' (39.6 m). A 9.0 MP resolution gives you sharp image quality, while the large 2.4" TFT Color LCD provides simple on-camera viewing. The instant focus lens operates from 2.0' (0.6 m) to infinity. The camera is shock-proof to 6.0' (1.8 m). A fully rubber-armored body offers durability and solid protection for your valuable camera. The large, wide spread 3-button controls afford simple operation, while the soft rubber grip design ensures a sturdy, secure hold.
The camera's 1-2-3 graphic on-screen guide makes it easy as can be to set the camera mode, with no complex menus. Land Auto mode works great for on-land action photos and videos in extreme conditions. Use Dive mode or Snorkel mode for underwater exposure control and color correction, so you can say goodbye to the muted, blue photos that inevitably result when the water absorbs the color in your subject. The Ext Flash mode works well for integration with an external flash to improve color and brightness beneath the surface.
The Mini II also features a Video mode at 30 fps with audio. There's even a Spy Mode, in which the camera automatically shoots continuous photos at designated time intervals. The camera is SD and SDHC card compatible, 8.0 GB being the recommended capacity. The Mini II is powered by 2x AAA Energizer Ultimate lithium batteries (included).
The Digital Pro Flash can be used in full manual mode. If you want to make your life easier, though, set it to Auto mode and allow it to automatically adjust flash brightness for the best possible image exposure. Variable power adjustment enables you to manually fine-tune flash brightness to achieve the desired effect and exposure. A Flash Link optical cable connection is included, as is a flexible, rubberized arm for simple aiming and secure grip. The flash features a depth rating of 200' (60 m). Five pre-flash cancellation settings are available. The Pro Flash has an effective underwater operating range of 2.0 - 8.0' (0.6 - 2.4 m).
The Mini Wide Angle Lens is a 0.65X conversion lens increasing your shooting angle by 33%. It snaps on and off with ease underwater. The lens, made of fully multi-coated optical glass, is designed to give you sharp close-up images from a distance of 1.0 - 3.0' (0.3 - 0.9 m) from your subject. It enables you to get closer to your subject while still fitting everything in frame, thus cutting down on distortion caused by the water and giving you clearer, more accurate images. The lens features a depth rating of 130' (40 m) and comes with a neoprene lens cover, pouch, cleaning cloth and safety lanyard.
