SeaLife Micro 2.0 || $500.00+
Summer is here, and we’re all going to be reaching for our smartphones to take pictures and videos of the memories on the water. But do you really want to risk that iPhone 7+ falling into Davy Jones’ locker? The SeaLife micro 2.0 underwater camera is permanently sealed (meaning no waterproof doors or o-rings) and capable of shooting 1080p HD video at 60 or 30 frames per second. The micro 2.0 is equipped with a 130-degree fisheye lens for up close pictures and a 16-megapixel Sony CMOS image sensor. Switching between video and picture modes is easy with the large “piano key” controls.
The camera comes in a few models with varying amounts of onboard memory (including a 64-gigabyte version), internal battery, and built-in Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi allows wireless sharing of video and pictures instantly with compatible devices, like the smartphone you wisely left aboard. The micro 2.0 goes down to 200 feet depth according to the manufacturer. SeaLife’s plethora of accessories, including the Sea Dragon light and Flex-Connect trays, grips, arms, and more are available to really trick out your micro 2.0. Check out sealife-cameras.com if interested, priced at $500.
