The Sea & Sea DX-1G Underwater Digital Camera is actually a kit that includes a Sea & Sea housing that is rated to withstand a depth of 164 feet (50 m), along with the Sea & Sea DX-1G camera. Since this camera has a shutter lag time of only 0.1 seconds, it is well suited for underwater use. The camera features a large 2.5-inch TFT liquid crystal monitor, well visible underwater.
The camera has a zoom lens equivalent to 24-72mm, f/2.5-4.4 on a full frame camera and is capable of taking macro close-ups. The DX-1G has functionality and performance close to an entry-level SLR without the bulk, hassle, and weight. It is a 10.3-megapixel camera with a CCD sensor capable of shooting JPEG or RAW as well as taking 640×480 video clips.
Note that the camera records directly to Adobe’s .DNG format, meaning there’s no headache at all loading into Lightroom or Bridge.
The Sea & Sea DX-1G housing allows access to all camera functions underwater.
