Rating: Sealife 8.0
Reviewer: Thomas Burke
I have not had a chance to take the camera on a dive yet, but have used it out of the case and it takes very good photos. It is easy to use. I have a dive trip in June 10 and am looking forward to useing it then on land and sea.

Rating: A great starter.
Reviewer: Jeffrey Neis  -  View all my reviews
My wife and I just spent 2 weeks in Hawaii... mostly in the water. We bought the camera days before we left and read the manual on the plane. My first advice is to play with the various settings (especially the "sea" settings and the white balance. It took a little trial and error but we figured it out. Second advice: rinse the case every chance you get! Especially the buttons... and try the zoom buttons and shutter button every time you put the camera in the case.... a few times I found myself underwater and the buttons didnt work. Having said that... This camera has FAR exceeded our expectations... both in and out of the water. We even did a night dive with manta rays and found that the built in flash is pretty impressive.... within a few feet. I wish it had an external charger, though... so you could use a spare battery while charging the other. Thats my one minor quibble. If you learn how to make the most out of the (seemingly endless) setting options you can really get hooked on underwater photography with this thing.

Rating: Great Value
Reviewer: Melissa G.
For the value, this is an amazing camera. We have taken it on numerous dives so far and couldnt be happier. Ensure that you learn the different setting modes to use this camera to its best ability. Landscape is an all around great mode for day time photos and of course use the sea mode for underwater. The anti-shake, and night modes are also good. My only complaint is you can not change from shooting mode to display while in the housing. You will also need to buy extra moisture munchers because the ones we got with the camera were already pink.

Rating: good start for beginner
Reviewer: Jennifer Anderson
This was a good camera for the average photographer it was a little hard to figure out how to switch from land use to underwater when in the case but finally figured it out. The thing that was really iritating was the moisture munchers enclosed were spent and pink (not blue as was supposed to be) luckily I had ordered an extra pkg of these as this also happened to a friend who bought the same camera. The company needs to figure out how to pkg the munchers so they are usable.

Rating: ALMOST PERFECT
Reviewer: Shannon K.  -  View all my reviews
THIS WAS MY FIRST UNDERWATER CAMERA PURCHASE, AND OVERALL, I AM SATISFIED. THE CAMERA IS VERY EASY TO USE AND HAS FANTASTIC FEATURES LIKE AN OCEAN SETTING THAT HELPS TO CORRECT YOUR COLOR. TE HOUSING IS STURDY AND I VEVER HAD ANY LEAKING. I BOUGHT THE MOISTURE MUNCHERS AND WENT THROUGH ABOUT 1 EVERY OTHER DAY (THREE DIVES A DAY). I ALSO PURCHASED THE FLOAT STRAP WHICH WAS WONDERFUL. THE CAMERA FELT SECURE ON MY WRIST USING IT. THE EXTRA BATTERY I BOUGHT IS NICE, BUT I NEVER NEEDED IT. THE BATTERY LASTED FOR THE ENTIRE DAY AND WASNT EVEN FULLY DRAINED. THATS SAYING A LOT. I TOOK OVER 1200 PICTURES IN 6 DAYS. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE EXTRA SD CARD. I USED A 4GB AND ONLY FILLED UP ABOUT HALF THE MEMORY. THE ONLY CRITICISM I HAVE FOR THE CAMERA IS THAT YOU CANNOT SWITCH BETWEEN VIDEO OR STILL PICTURE MODE ONCE THE CAMERA IS INSDIDE THE HOUSING. OTHER THAN THAT, THIS CAMERA IS AWESOME. ALSO, I SEARCHED MANY SITES BEFORE PURCHASING FROM SCUBA.COM, AND THEY DEFINITELY HAD THE BEST DEAL AND GAVE YOU THE MOST EXTRAS.

Reviewer: BILL OTTEN
Have not used the camera yet - we are going to Aruba Oct 10, 2009 and hope to dive and take some great pictures of some old ship wrecks. The camera looks great and we are reading up on the manual and instructions, thanks so much for a great deal for this underwater camera. Bill Otten 1742 S. Triple Crown St. Wichita, KS 67230

Rating: Great camera
Reviewer: Jennifer P.  -  View all my reviews
This camera is excellent. It worked perfectly, taking great pictures and impressively steady video underwater. It never leaked and it only took one "moisture muncher" for 2 days of diving and its still good for at least one more dive trip. Great buy!

Rating: Great Camera
Reviewer: Joyce Knapczyk
Just a all around good camera. For true color the standard flash it great for close up shots but youre going to need the ext strobe for anything else over 5 ft(depending on depth). Note: remember to set the camera for underwater(sea) in order to take pictures.

Rating: DC800 Rocks
Reviewer: Jason L.  -  View all my reviews
Bought for recent trip to Kauai. Camera worked great, the housing is very rugged and is easy to use underwater. Takes great pictures above and below the surface. Camera is user friendly, got great photos of turtles and even a whale. I definately recomend this camera. Only one small knock, but Im sure there is a remedy when in dive mode, surface pics will have red tone to account for blue water. I do recommend buying the flash accessory. Definately my next purchase.

Rating: Sealife DC800 Camera
Reviewer: Lisa Hobart  -  View all my reviews
The camera is very easy to use and takes good pictures. I would recommend adding a strobe to enhance picture quality of the camera. The only downfall I found is when using the camera for onshore pictures I received a shadow on the screen while taking pictures on the beach in warm weather. I am hoping this will clear up, so be careful when using the camera other than underwater photography.
