The manuals are "sketchy" at best. If you have never used an underwater camera, you will need someone to help you with this one. A little surprising since the market for this camera are people who are new to underwater photography.

Rating: Great Camera
Reviewer: Jon R.
I purchased this camera to be a good multi-purpose for diving and snorkeling. I cannot be any more pleased with the results. The quality of the pictures during my snorkeling and diving totally surpassed all my expectations. The HD video quality also surpassed my expectations. I really liked the quick start-up when turning on the camera as well as all the different pre-set settings for different diving and snorkeling situations. The large buttons were easy to use. However, this camera also takes great pictures out of water. On my recent trip, one of my favorite pictures was with this camera when I was snorkeling at dusk. I then popped up out of the water to take a picture of the sunset. I didnt even take the camera out of its case and the picture was AWESOME. I highly recommend this camera for anyone who wants a GREAT all purpose water camera.

Rating: Sealife Underwater Camera
Reviewer: James Millman
Beautiful camera, easy to use on land, and it doestakes good pics underwater. HOWEVER, I do find it difficult to see what I was taking a picture of underwater in the display screen at snorkeling depths. Way too much reflective light from above. I would like to find some type of shading screen to assist in darkening the screen which I hope would deflect the light off of it. Bulky with the flash attachment as well.

Rating: Good camera, bad flash
Reviewer: Michael Zenkl
This is a simple point-and-shoot camera which has some preprogrammed underwater modes which are easy to access, the camera is fast and has good resolution. But in auto mode, the flash is way too "hot". We fixed that in Cozumel first by using the manual flash mode, but even then, the flash is too concentrated at the center, and then by taping a white plastic bag in front of the flash, that improved the pictures a lot but I feel that Sealife should not have you do that. I am buying a Housing for my Sony Nex-7 with an INON flash now, the Sealife is an entry level product but not really worth the expense...

Rating: DC1400 with flash
Reviewer: Tammy C.
I bought this as an upgrade to the DC1200 before my dive trip to Grand Cayman. It was very easy to get used to its functions. I upgraded because when I had the DC1200 for a trip I was not happy with the results without a flash. The flash powers up well. Both the flash and the camera batteries lasted 3 40-50 minute dives without needing to be changed. The arm for the flash was flexible and easily able to adjust while diving. I still am learning technique and how to best position the lighting but the pictures that were with flash had good color even to the deeper depths. The HD video also worked well and in shallower waters held the color. I will definately need to get a video light before my next trip though for better video colors at depth. The one thing I was unhappy with but it may just be me needing to play with it more is close up shots. They were very blurry. I played with it at home too and was not able to get clear close up shots. I see also that the wide angle lens is not available yet. Not sure if a close up lens will be coming out but that would be a nice addition. Overall I was happy with the ease of use, the flash and battery life. Definately a good idea to have extra rechargeable batteries available though.

Reviewer: HENRY L.  -  View all my reviews
This Underwater set up is one of the best non SLR cameras Ive used. It takes a few shots to calibrate the flash. For snorkeling, it should be set at one of the lower settings. The pictures are outstanding.

our second underwater camera - already been out and not quite as simple as point and shoot - but close and some of the pictures turned out great! Like the attached flash. Now Im thinking of a red lens.

Rating: Fantastic!
Reviewer: Robert G.
Have been using the camera while diving on Bonaire the last 2 weeks. It has performed beautifully on land and in the water. It is intuitive and takes excellent macro pictures. The menu features allow for easy set up of any scene. Overall, one of my best purchases ever!

Questions and Answers for Sealife DC1400 14 Megapixel Underwater Camera and HD Video Pro Set with Digital Pro Flash:

  • Allison:

    I am interested in the "Pro" set...on the other websites I have been comparison shopping on, the set includes a flash diffuser-I dont see that in the listing here-could you confirm if it is included in this set? Thanks!

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    According to the manufacturer the Flash Diffuser is part of the Pro Kit.

  • Neal:

    Can I buy the sealife 1400 camera from you and use the housing and other accessories included with the 1200?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Neal, all of the accessories will work between the DC 1400 and DC 1200 except the housing the housing for the DC1400 will not work for the 1200. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Colleen:

    Bill, does that include the underwater flash?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    This set comes with the Pro Flash.

  • douglaslroberts:

    Is the "free" battery in addition to the one that normally comes with the camera?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    This is the battery included from the manufacture in the kit.

  • Scott:

    Your advertisement states "Fast shutter response time - as fast as 0.1 seconds and quick start up". When I tried it out in the housing with the flash, there is quite a lot longer delay. Am I doing something wrong? Also, do I need the optional diffuser with the new, remodeled flash?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    The shutter speed and the recycle time are 2 different things. The shutter is what captures the image when you press the button to shoot a picture. The recycle time is the time it takes the camera to prepare to shoot another image. This can be affected by the strength of the battery, the flash being turned on, and the number of shots in a short period that have been taken in succession.

  • Kim:

    Do I have to purchase a separate housing with this or can it go down to 200 ft as it is sold here?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Kim, this comes with the housing that will let you dive with this camera to 200'.
