  • "Better" is subjective. For you "better" may be a small sensor with a dim zoom and not waterproof, but for those who prefer a large sensor with a bright lens and waterproof, there is no "better" ...
  • You can argue around a whole day long, but the truth is the same: SeaLife DC2000 remains the only available model with a large sensor, fast lens, waterproof without an enclosure. No one is forcing ...
  • My second camera for travel is Panasonic LX100 II. I love it and use as a walk around unit, but leave it behind while sailing to the coral reefs for snorkeling with SeaLife DC2000. I prefer a ...
  • It is quite remarkable that among so many camera brands and models flooding the consumer market SeaLife DC2000 remains the only available option with a large sensor, fast lens, waterproof without ...
  • Agreed. SeaLife DC2000 delivers the best image quality underwater without an enclosure. Naturally this mostly applies to snorkeling, which is a large market. The camera also takes great images ...
  • The models you mention are not waterproof and don’t compete with SeaLife. Sony RX0 is waterproof with a 1” sensor, but has a 4 times smaller screen (by area) and its lens is nowhere as bright plus ...
  • Created user review thread Superb image quality - slow Raw
    This model has an excellent bright lens with a good bokeh, excellent large Sony sensor, and great JPEG processor (with lens distortion correction, etc.). Out of the camera JPEGs above water are ...
  • Created discussion thread Next best film scanner after drum
    I have a number of 35mm negatives to scan, mostly in strips. I am interested in the highest image quality, such as top DMax, but without the $16,000 price tag of Hasselblad Flextight. I am not ...
  • Thanks for your valuable insight. I will most definitely keep it in mind. My question though is far more basic. It is not about correcting underexposed shots or setting the optimal ISO or shutter ...
  • "Slow" means "not so bright". A "slow" lens is a lens with a limited maximum aperture. For example, an f/4.0 lens is "slower" than an f/2.8 lens, which is in turn "faster" (brighter).

  • Yes indeed the camera does all that (with no excessive sharpening) plus also corrects for substantial vignetting and substantial lens distortions (at least barrel but possibly more). I use ...
  • Created discussion thread Sealife DC2000 Raw question
    I just bought a used DC2000 for snorkeling. I am testing JPEG against Raw in Photoshop 12.1 ACR 6.7. Surprisingly JPEG images out of camera are dramatically better. It is immediately obvious that ...
  • I've bought a used SeaLife DC2000. Haven't tested it yet. Thanks for your advice!
  • Replied in Rangefinder?
    I just mean mirrorless. The idea is that the presence of a mirrror makes the design of wide to normal lenses super complicated. With no mirror wider lenses can be simpler, better, brighter, and ...
  • Thanks for your insight. Other than the shutter lag, do you have any issues with the SeaLife? And also, do you happen to have any photos from each to visually illustrate your point? This would be ...
  • Created discussion thread Underwater camera advice
    I am looking for an underwater camera for snorkeling. No diving, so the depth doesn't matter, but the camera must be submersible itself without a special case. At least a 3" display is a must. Idea ...
  • Ah, a reincarnation of the legendary 200/1.8. Can I please have it in 50mm and for a half price? :)
  • Created discussion thread Best bokeh on mirrorless
    I am looking for a new camera and lens for "bokeh as a part of the subject". My total budget for the body and the first lens is a few (from under 2 up to 4) thousand USD, although, if there is an ...
