wilsonlaidlaw: Bad decision from day one to use a 1" sensor. The movement today is for cameras to aim for the enthusiast market, who don't want to take photos with their phones. The P&S or small camera market is dying. For the current market, I feel a 1" sensor would be regarded as too small. Maybe today, even the micro 4/3rd's sensor is perceived as being at the bottom end of acceptable sensor size. The enthusiast market wants APS-C sensors or larger for interchangeable lens cameras.

IQ from 1", m43, aps is all excellent. Most choose a camera on other things then sensor size ( if not, they will be ). Features like live composite, in camera focus stacking, excellent stabilasation ( 5 sec.handheld ), weather sealing etc. will become more and more important.

For me weight/size is important. So I will never go back to aps or ff.

I believe sensor is the least important feature of a camera.

Nice image. Personally I prefer non photoshopped images. Spent a bit more time shooting (using a filter / tripod / long exposure) and a bit less behind the computer, I would appriciate it more.

Focus on gear / process, the recipe for disaster. Three words: portfolio, portfolio, portfolio.

If you like the photographers portfolio,it will be fine. You couldn't care less about equipment and/or raw developing process.

ShatteredSky: YES, finally. But why oh why no zoom lens? I would not mind it being larger ... but then again it also depends on how close you can get with this thing. I'd also rather have a tele add-on ...

I use short tele as well. And In your reasoning, 31mm eq. is not really wide, let alone ultrawide. So it is a weird focal length for an underwater camera.

Scubadu: The fully sealed camera from SeaLife does not have expandable memory. The new one takes SD.

My impression of the new DC2000 is that it should be good for photos. The strobe package is inexpensive as are the wide angle and macro lenses. I would not buy the camera without one of them. Wth SeaLife you are buying into a modular system.

4K video should be standard today yet Canon's G9X is also stuck at 1080. For the same money one could also buy a Sony RX100, Meikon housing and a Nauticam WetMate dome. The RX100 I has a good lens but speaking honestly, Sony's white balance is terrible underwater. If the lens on the new SeaLife is good then it may be a worthy choice for divers.

Shoot RAW underwater, then the white balance is not a problem.

@mattz10 Why carry an additional harddrive along?

I use it for backup during vacations. 128GB at least, 256GB will soon be required. Cloud is NOT a solution! Backing up 1 day shooting photos/videos on vacation may take up to a whole week... hahaha... definitely not usable at all... why carry an additional device, if my phone can hold an SD card that I can use! No card... not the phone for me!

pocoloco: Yet another annoying item to charge. Can't charge and listen, unless I handover way too much money for wireless earplugs that are easily lost. Oh yeah, going on a trip, a 15 hour flight, I guess I need to buy 3 sets of these earplugs, because they only last 5 hours. What a crap for $200!

What problem do they believe they have solved? Do they realize they created 3 problems by removing the jack?

@stu the apple site lists 5 hours*. Hmmm, the * probably means 2 hours in real life. Great that you believe its 24h, Apple does not.

Waterproof is cool, but not trendsetting. Manu phones have been waterproof for many years.
