Hi there! On the Sealife Cameras manufacturer website, it says that this model has a mini wide-angle lens (detachable) included. The pic shown here does not show that lens attached and the description does not mention the lens as included. Can you please let me know for sure? Thank you!
Hello Bobby, in the description they are letting you know that the picture has included in it the wide angle lens. That is an added feature you can get when you order the camera. The wide angle lens is $69.95. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
How significant is a "less than 1 second delay" for shutter speed - is this a normal spec for a point and shoot digital?
Hello Cindy, Thank you for your inquiry! Less than one second shutter speed is rather fast of this type of digital camera. And SeaLife is always working to make the cameras even better! http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-535/168261/Sealife-Reefmaster-Mini-2.1-9.0-Megapixel-Underwater-Camera.html If you would like to place an order or have questions about our products, please contact one of our certified Dive Instructors at SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is the dc1400 worth the extra over the reefmaster mini 2.1 for snorkeling Thanks
Hello Steve, you will take better pictures and video with the DC 1400, over the Reef Master Mini. Plus you can use the DC 1400 outside of the housing if you take any land shots. The Mini is an all-in-one unit. 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.
What is the difference between the mini 2.1 and the mini 2.0-What makes it worth the extra money?
Can an universal external strobe attach to this camera with tray and synch cord?
It uses the Digital Pro Flash. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-540/069700/Sealife-Digital-Pro-Flash.html
how long is the battery life, dont say you dont know.. give me an example. an average of how many shots
I bougth the Reefmaster Mini 2.1.9 camera for my daughter. She is in Jamaica using it but complained that it was shutting off everytime she tried to zoom, also it is using the battery very quickly. Is this normal or is she doing doing something wrong?
Hi Barbara, The 1st thing I would try is new batteries. Also I would recommend 2 AAA lithium batteries, not alkaline batteries. You will get a lot more run time out of lithium batteries. If you are still having problems with your camera here is a link to help you. http://www.scuba.com/resources/repair/sealife.asp
I am NOT a professional photographer. Is there a more affordable alternative to the Sealife Digital Pro Flash attachment?
The Sealife Digital Pro Flash is one of the most affordable strobes on the market. It is designed to work with any point and shoot digital cameras. In comparison, strobes by other manufacturers and for other cameras can typically cost several times the price of the Sealife Digital Pro Flash.
The description states up to 8GB. Can I use a 16? Is 8 enough for a snorkeling trip? I am able to transfer everyday, but I dont want to run out of room while out diving. Thanks.
The LCD screen deplay is too large so I cannot see the menus and therefore cannot set up the camera. Can you help me reduce the display the manual does not cover this. Thanks
