Sea & Sea DX-1200HD overview

  • 1Description

The Sea & Sea DX-1200HD Underwater Digital Camera is actually a kit that includes a Sea & Sea housing that is rated to a depth of 147' (45 m), along with the Sea & Sea DX-1200HD camera. The camera is well suited to shoot digital stills and HD video underwater. Of course, the camera is also ideal for snorkeling, surfing, skiing, fishing, sailing, or even certain industrial situations.

The camera features a large 3" LCD screen. This makes framing underwater easy and fun. Since the camera has exposure compensation functions you have some control balancing the available light to strobe light. These features along with macro capability of 3.9" makes the DX-1200HD a good choice for underwater imaging, at a reasonable price.

The Sea & Sea DX-1200HD housing allows access to all camera functions underwater. The camera is part of a system that includes strobes and a wide-angle conversion lens. The system will nurture your creativity and allow expansion of your underwater photography skills.
