Hi Bruce, Link below is for the DC1400 camera only. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-540/168213/Sealife-Replacement---Spare-Camera-Only-No-Housing-for-DC1400.html
Hi. LCD display shows only white pixels. How I can repair this? Which LCD display use in DC1400 in order to change it?
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.
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.
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.)
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,
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!
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
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?
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?
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
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
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?
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
Is this camera an overkill for snorkeling?
The Mini II would be better. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-535/168174/Sealife-Mini-II.html
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?
I have a sea & sea mounting bracket and a sea & sea YS-02 external strobe. Can I use the Sealife DC1400 with these? If so, how easy is it to connect the external strobe to the DC1400 housing unit?
yes it is compatible. You would just need this item. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-516/168099/Sealife-Flash-Link-Adapter.html
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
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?
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...
Sealife DC1400 14 Megapixel Underwater Dive Camera SL720 168207 Part Number : SL720 DC1400 14 Megapixel Underwater Dive Camera I would like to purchase the camera only. i do not need the housing or chargers. is it possible to just purchase the camera?
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
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?
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?
just bought the dc1400 what size sd card can i buy? there is conflicting literature: easy instructions say 8 gbwith 16gb maxmanual mentions 32 gb. does it matter if i put in a 32 gb sd v. the others?
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
I had a DC 1400. Went out in the ocean last week, Took the camera out of the water tight camera. Long story short. The boat sank and lost the inner camera. Would like to replace it. Anyone have a clue where I might be able to buy one Thanks N.K.
Hello, sorry to here about the camera and the boat. Here is the link for just the camera W/o the housing. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-540/168213/Sealife-Replacement---Spare-Camera-Only-No-Housing-for-DC1400.html
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?
