Rating: Sealife DC800 Maxx Kit
Reviewer: Thomas Matsumoto  -  View all my reviews
PROS: Overall the camera and flash work well. Camera is positive bouyant. Comes with a weight, but needs to be a little heavier. Would purchase again, but from a more reliable source than CONS: 2 x AA battery chargers were included. One did not work. never responded to my return inquiries (3 total). Probably more of an issue with than Sealife. Flashes need to come with a diffuser (must have for close in pics-at this price should have been included). Camera housing needs a bigger wrist strap mount (very wimpy) to accept universal diving attachment straps.
