Moorestown, NJ—SeaLife, a provider of underwater photographic equipment, will launch a new DC1400 limited edition pink camera in September. With pink grip-pad, accents and controls, this limited version underwater model will help raise money for breast cancer research. For each camera sold, SeaLife will donate $5 to a leading breast cancer research charity organization.
Featuring five, easy-to-use “piano keys,” the DC1400 limited edition pink captures either high-definition 720p video or 14 megapixel high-resolution images of underwater adventures. When its underwater housing is removed, it transforms into a compact point-and-shoot camera to record topside adventures as well.
Depth tested to 200 feet, the camera’s external polycarbonate body is rubber armored for handling and shock-protection in all conditions. The pink rubber surface on the camera’s face is designed to provide a sure grip, with or without gloved hands. The DC1400 incorporates five large primary control keys to eliminate the confusing button cluster of a traditional camera and provide one-handed operation in any environment, even with gloves on.
With its raised pink-colored rubber bars, the fingertip “central command” lever is located in front of the camera’s large shutter button to allow scrolling through various menus. It also controls the 5x optical zoom without releasing the user’s grip from the camera. For close-ups of underwater wonders, the camera’s supermacro autofocus lens will focus down to within one inch from the subject.
The DC1400 also offers six underwater modes and a 1-2-3 graphic on-screen guide to take the guesswork out of setting up the camera for pictures on land or underwater. Also, there are 27 scene modes—from auto and shutter or aperture priority to smile detection, landscape, night scene and fireworks. In anti-shake mode, the DC1400’s new optical image stabilization CCD-shift technology helps reduce image blur caused by hand movement on land.
Other features include: a 3.0-inch LCD screen; spy mode that autonomously operates the camera to take a continuous string of images at custom-preset time intervals; a rechargeable lithium battery that provides power for one hour of continuous HD video or 200 photographs; 20MB of built-in memory; and an SD/SDHC card slot. Complete with its underwater housing, it measures 3.7×5.3×2.8 inches and weighs less than 18 ounces.
The SeaLife DC1400 limited edition pink (# SL720P) will be available in September for a suggested list price of $529.95, including a wrist strap with a pink SeaLife logo. It will also be available as the DC1400 Pro set with the SeaLife digital pro flash and with the digital pro flash and video light as the DC1400 Pro Duo set. sealife-cameras.com
