Rating: Scuba in Akumal, Mexico
Reviewer: Willie Polukoshko
I bought the camera for our trip to Mexico this last spring. I received it just before we left, and had concerns that i would not have enough time to learn how to operate it. No problems, very easy to learn instructions. I got a chance to use it for both open ocean and cenote diving. Very clear pictures and videos. The holiday was beyond spectacular, the memories will last forevever, thank you.

Rating: Sealife DC1400 14 Megapixel Underwater Dive Camera Review - $499.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: EUGENE R.  -  View all my reviews
This is a very good camera specially designed for snorkellers and divers while still affordable. It takes very sharp pictures and makes outstandig movies. The casing is well built for easy operations and protect against variations of humidity with a good seal and dry sticks to absorb humidity when you transit from cold to warmer water. This humidity can burn your camera circuit boards. My Previous Panasonic lasted one month, it was supposed to be waterproof, but because it had no case transiting to warmer water killed it on the second trip.

Rating: All I can say is WOW!
Reviewer: Kay M.
this is my fourth underwater camera and my second sealife and things just keep getting better. this camera is a jewel. i love the housing. it is so easy to see underwater and so much easier to use. big buttons and a great display. this is also the first camera that has allowed me settings for underwater - even to the point of ing sea color as green or blue. it took a few dives for me to get it right, but my pictures are amazing. the pixelation is stunning. i am able to get a shot from some distance of, say, a trunk fish, and then crop it much smaller and still have stunning detail. the camera also lets you know it there is too much ambient light (need to be down at least 25 feet) by turning red. it is an excellent camera with features for dummies. i was able to get awesome pictures without an external flash.

Reviewer: kathleen d.
The camera and case are in like new condition so Im very pleased as I purchased a display camera from the store. The service from scuba.com has been consistently responsive and superior to any other on line retailer Ive dealt with. The reviews for this camera are all good so Im looking forward to taking it with me to Belize.

Rating: Great Camera
Reviewer: Benjamin L.
Best decision I have made in awhile! :) I have read a lot of reviews of underwater cameras. Mostly negative.. It took me months to pull the trigger. I was hesitant to buy this camera, but I am sure glad I did! I have decided that like normal, you reviewer people are entirely too picky. Sure the shutter speed is about a 1 second delay. Sure the pictures arent always perfect unless the visibility is. But you are taking pictures underwater people.. And with nothing but a basic flash! I am a vacation diver and have never used an underwater camera. I found it incredibly easy to use and have gotten amazing comments from my friends on my first trip with underwater pictures. I have a lot to learn and look forward to using all the capabilities of this camera!

Rating: Sealife DC1400
Reviewer: Delores M.
We purchased this camera as an upgrade after our DC600 failed (we think we didnt close the housing all the way...it was great at 60ft, not so great at 90ft). After researching we decided to upgrade rather than replace, and could not be happier! The piano key style buttons on the housing are much easier to use once you relearn some of the navigation and the only thing we need to get used to is the extra nanosecond or three for the picture to actually snap, but we are still VERY glad we decided to upgrade, and actually went out and immediately purchased a light for video in addition to the strobe we had for stills.

My new underwater camera was a great success. It was easy to use and it kept perfectly dry. I used it both out of water and in water and I used it shallow dive to snorkel. Pictures were great and I learned a few tricks for my next experience in February. Great products, good prices. Ill be a returning customer.

Questions and Answers for Sealife DC1400 14 Megapixel Underwater Dive Camera:


  • Dmitry:

    Hi. LCD display shows only white pixels. How I can repair this? Which LCD display use in DC1400 in order to change it?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Dmitry, you would need to contact the manufacture directly on the repair. You can contact them directly at: http://www.scuba.com/resources/repair/sealife.asp.

  • Kim:

    I have a dc1200 max duo that flooded, would I be able to buy the dc 1400 with the housing and use my same flash and video. Otherwise just replace the whole camera and housing.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Unfortunately you can not interchange the housings and cameras, but the accessories like the strobe will work with either model. The wide angle lens for the DC1200 will not work with the DC1400 housing.

  • Reagan:

    Is there a warranty?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    They will come with a full manufacturer warranty.

  • Ken:

    Would it be possible to buy a DC-1400 without an external lamp, try it out on a dive trip or two, and if I like the camera, go ahead and buy an external light to add onto it after that? And if so, how much more would the add-on light cost compared to what I would have paid if I had gone ahead and bought it along with the camera as part of a package deal? (Im assuming that I would buy the SL980 photo/video combination light.)

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The basic camera and housing as pictured is what you have been looking at. The strobe or LED Video light can be purchased separate at any time.

  • juan:

    Hi, I want a camera to my scuba class (Im a begginer), and i had read about how good is housing to a normal camera, but, Im afraid the camera get drown due to a leak or something like it, besides, i will use the camera to go rivers, do rappel and similar. Is there any waterprove camara with housing to use in the sea depth. (sorry for my English, im from latinAmerica) Thanks,

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This camera is perfect for anybody, beginner to advance and will work perfectly for your uses.

  • Tarajan:

    I am looking to buy a Camera for my boyfriend, who is a cuba diver. He asked for one that can at least go 150ft. Do you have to put this camera in a case when using it in the water, or the whole camera itself is waterproof?. Also wondering if this is the best camera for the buy? thanks for your help!

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Sealife DC1400 is a great choice and best value.

  • Fabian:

    Thank you for the reply, now I am not actually diving, these are pictures under artificial light. The one problem I have now is that my current camera cannot take good pictures under LED lighting, these come out really Blue, do you know if this has a setting to help with that? The other type of lighting are Metal Halides. Thanks

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    You would have play with the white balance adjustment to see if you can get a better color. This camera has that ability.

  • Patrick:

    Ive seen some of the pictures that were taken with the DC1400. were those taken with or without the Pro/Video lighting kits? also, are there any filters that were attached to the camera or only the build-in option were used?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It is diffifult for us to tell, without seeing the images ourselves. Your shots will always be improved by the use of an external flash. Digital photography generally does not require the use of the addtional filters.

  • George:

    my wife used to use a minolta waterproof camera for her snorkelling photos, however she can no longer obtain film for this camera. i have checked out other various cameras (sony, panasonic, fuji, etc.) and the reviews on all these cameras werent to my satisfaction. she doesnt dive but i would like to purchase a waterproof underwater camera that she can depend on and is user friendly. again, someone asked you in your other questions, "does this camera need an housing" or is it waterproof without housing? what about sand or dirt while on the beach, that seemed to be a big concern with the other cameras?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Sealife Mini II might be a better choice http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-535/168174/Sealife-Reefmaster-Mini-2-9.0-Megapixel-Underwater-Camera.html

  • Fabian:

    I am looking for a new underwater camera, I am a Coral Reef Hobbyist and take tons of pictures of my corals and fish, would this camera be an overkill? I currently use an Olympus 710 with underwater casing, which takes great pictures and have gone through two of these cameras. Here are some of the pictures I take and want to continue taking. http://instagram.com/coralreefenthusiast

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This will be a great camera for the type of diving you are doing.

  • Jennifer:

    1. How deep can you go and still take photos with the DC1400? 2. The photos I see on line dont seem to have a clear plastic housing. Is this something I have to buy as an additional item or is the DC1400 already enclosed and ready to use at depth?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It is depth rated to 200 feet where you could still take photo's. The photo we have online is of the camera inside of the durable black waterproof housing. The inner camera which can be removed and used on the surface looks like this: http://www.scuba.com/shop/display.asp_id_168213

  • Julianna:

    So this summer Im going on a trip to Thailand, and will be scuba diving everyday for 3 weeks there. I have been scuba diving in the Caribbean before and used a disposable underwater camera where my pictures came out awful and barely visible. Obviously this camera will be better, but is it worth the price? This is a once in a lifetime trip for me and I may never see the creatures I see in Thailand ever again so I really want to get amazing shots. Do you think I should buy this camera, and even maybe invest in the flash? Also, we will be diving to about 100 feet, will this camera be okay to do so?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This camera is one of the most affordable in it's category and will work perfectly for your uses.

  • Charity:

    Do you sell the DC1400 pink edition as a stand alone camera with housing package, without the Pro Duo kit?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    They have been sold out and are no longer available.

  • Rob:

    I have a intova iss2000 slave flash stobe will it work with this camera?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Rob, yes your strobe would work with this camera.

  • Dorothy:

    Purchased the dc1200 from scuba.com for my husband in 2011 as kit with the strobe. He flooded it. If I buy the dc 1400 with housing can he use the strobe from the dc 1200 or do I need to buy the whole package again

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Dorothy, yes the strobe you have will work with your new DC 1400.

  • bob:

    Is this camera adjustable in any way (Aperture/shutter priority) or is it point and shoot? Does the camera capture RAW images, or just JPEG? Would an external flash be recommended for pool shoots (8-10 feet max) if your subject was with 10 feet of the camera?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Bob, yes this is a point and shoot camera, you can zoom in both optical and digital zooming. Also it does take both types of pictures. As for the strobe yes it would be a great add-on item to help you take better pictures.

  • Renita:

    I recently purchased the DC1400 and wanted to know if the inside camera is also waterproof where I can use it for just snorkeling or simple watersports? If not, is there a smaller waterproof housing that is not so bulky for this camera? Thanks so much...

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No the camera is not waterproof and needs the housing to be used in the water.

  • Frances:

    Hi I just ordered a DC1400, Does it come with a battery charger or do I have to buy that separately? Also I need the camera by the 13th at the latest. The 13th of February. How can I be sure it will come on time? Thanks

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Frances, yes this comes with the charger so you can charge the battery.

  • Bea:

    I bought a DC1400 and took it on a diving vacation to the south Pacific. The pictures are an eerie blue/green. Even with the flash. Another diver had an iPhone in a $100 waterproof box and a $100 red filtered wide angle lens and her pictures are crystal clear. We took some side by side shots and hers are better. I just looked on line and i dont see a red filter for my camera. Can anyone tell me how they have overcome this problem?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Bea, there is no red or colored filter that you can get for the DC 1400.

  • Sandy:

    Im looking at this Sealife DC1400. Does the retail price of $529 include the housing or do I need to purchase that separately. Does it have an onboard flash?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Sandy, this come with both the camera and the housing to take into the water with you.

  • Elaine:

    Hi there, I from overseas so my country uses 220V instead of 110v. I like to buy this camera but can it be charged with a 220volt current source? I do not want to blow up my new buy. And will there be any international warranty for the demo or new set? Thank you

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It comes with both the AC chargers and International adapters from the manufacturer.

  • K:

    My Dad and I have just got certified and I have been looking for a camera that will take great pictures at about 30-40 FT of water. Also, does the outer housing need any oiling or replacing of the O-Rings or any part of the waterproof case?
