  • Summary: I only used the Sea Life DC1000 about 18 times over the last year and a half.We used it only on warm destination dives.The external flash unit has a on/off/test lever on the top of the housing which has always been very easy to move , so much so that when traveling it would often move to the on position by itself and then drain the batteries.I learned after 3 times to remove the batteries when traveling.I just got back from a dive holiday in Belize to find that the lever...
  • Pros: Pictures are of fair to good quality.In all fairness to the camera you need to practice all the settings in different water conditions with and without the strobe to achieve the best possible picture quality.The strobe reflects back on particles in the water on overcast days and you should be closer to the subjects when taking the pictures.
  • Cons: The wide angle lens has to be installed after you are under the water or there will be a water level line on your pictures.The lens fit is tight and won't let the air out very fast.I am still trying to get the movie to work with there instructions when you have it set on the camera underwater setting.The strobe on lever is very sloppy and now broken.
