SeaLife ReefMaster DC100 Review
Features and Controls
SeaLife add-on Macro and Wide Angle lenses that attach to the exterior lens port of the u/w
case are available (see previous page.)
Controls on the top: Mode Dial with positions for Record, Play, Setup, Delete
and PC Connect. Flash mode button, Image quality button, monochrome LCD data
display, Menu button and Power button. The red button is the Shutter release.
Here we see the optical viewfinder that can be used when the camera is in LAND
mode and out of the u/w housing. There's two LEDs to indicate camera and flash
status. Buttons along the 1.8" color LCD are used to navigate menus and select
images. The top button also enables the self-timer in Record mode.
The bottom button controls the color LCD and the information overlayed on the review
The DC100 has 8MB of memory built-in and the CompactFlash Type I card slot allows
you to greatly expand your picture taking capabilities.
I strongly recommend 1600mAh (or higher) NiMh batteries
as they are rechargeable thereby enviromentally friendly and last more than enough for a couple
of dives with the LCD on. Sealife tested the following batteries under normal and extreme
operating conditions. The following operating times are averages and can vary depending on age
of battery, temperature and other factors.
Extreme conditions (designed to test the power consumption in the most extreme operating conditions.)
