Excerpt: The shutter speed was slower with this model than the DC800 I upgraded from. I've only had the camera a couple of years and already it doesn't work. It worked well on my last dive trip as long as I didn't try to use it underwater. The screen went blank as soon as I took it underwater.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Limited Zoom, Poor Image Quality, Poor in Low Light
Summary: After researching dive camera options on-line and considering features, price, and user-friendliness based on other reviews, I decided on the Sealife DC1400 Pro Duo, which I found new for $800. Upon receiving it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it came assembled.
Summary: Perfect, it was what we were looking for. The supplir should mention that the set is in a nice softbag. We nearly ordered a separate case for over USD 2K. Will use it on our next trip to the Maldives.
Excerpt: I bought this as an easy alternative than having to buy a point and shoot camera AND an underwater housing (As I am completely uncomfortable putting my DSLR underwater - plus those housings are super pricey).
Excerpt: I have owned severl point and shoot waterproof cameras including a Pentax Optio, a Canon DC10 and Fuji xp30 nd xp10 and the difference is huge. The DC1400 has am effective filter for underwater use that is pretty good.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good Video Quality, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Solid Housing
