15 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

The DC1400 Pro has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most cameras of a comparable type and age to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

A CCD sensor type is actually the best sensor type across all waterproof cameras that were released around the same time as the DC1400 Pro.

A MOS sensor type is the worst sensor type amongst similar types of camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT3.

Very High Maximum Waterproof Depth

The lowest maximum waterproof depth of similar spec digital cameras that have been available for more than two years is 3m, the highest is 60m, and the average maximum waterproof depth is 11m. The maximum waterproof depth of the SeaLife DC1400 Pro of 60 meters is one of the highest amongst waterproof cameras that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Screen Size

The smallest screen size of digital cameras of this age and spec is 1.8" and the largest is 3.3". With a screen size of 3 inches, the DC1400 Pro has one of the larger screen sizes amongst comparable spec digital cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 3" screen cameras to this camera and we think the Canon EOS 7D (£390.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
