The most beautiful sites I’ve seen on the water have actually been below the surface, but the underwater cameras I’ve used have been a disappointment. After waiting days for the photos to be developed, I’ve been unhappy with the dark, blurry, and poor-quality pictures. Next time I dive or snorkel, I’ll consider taking along a ReefMaster Digital underwater camera from SeaLife.

Two camera models are available: the DC300 and the DC310. Both are 3.3 megapixels and feature a “Dive Control System” and “Sea Mode” that allow users to manipulate shutter speed, resolution, light sensitivity, and exposure while underwater. Each camera is designed for one-button operation and has a review feature which lets you instantaneously view all shots on a one-and-a-half-inch LCD monitor; to help conserve batteries, you can shut off the display.

Both cameras feature 8 MB of built-in memory (an SD card can be added for 256 MB more) and are powered by two AA batteries. The DC300 has a suggested retail price (SRP) of $369.95, and the DC310 has an SRP of $469.95.
