Sealife Reefmaster Digital Camera
By Capt. Patrick Sciacca — October 2002
So there you are in your scuba gear, swimming along, and you just happen to stumble on the lost city of Atlantis. Who's going to believe you found it without proof? Well, you can put the naysayers in their place with a picture of your discovery from Reefmaster's underwater digital camera.
The Reefmaster Digital DC200 camera, which is also good for use on land, has automatic settings for the underwater point-and-click photographer when it's in "sea" mode. This feature eliminates the need to change aperture and shutter speeds manually. If you snap a picture and you're not sure you want to save it, the camera's preview and delete functions should help you decide.
Thanks to its clear Makrolon housing and dual O-rings, the DC200 is said to be useable in depths of 200 feet. The Reefmaster also has 8 MB of memory, which allows it to store 17 high-resolution images. An optional 32-MB Flash card reportedly enables the camera to record up to 64 images.
The Reefmaster Digital DC200 is available through most major dive shops and camera retailers and has a suggested retail price of $549.95.
