12 Reasons For

CCD Sensor Type

The SeaLife DC1400 Pro has a CCD sensor type which is better than the MOS sensor type found on most digital 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 digital cameras of this type and age.

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

There are a number of other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available that you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic DMC-FT3.

Very High Waterproof Up to

The waterproof up tos of waterproof cameras that have been available for more than two years range from 3m to 60m. The SeaLife DC1400 Pro has one of the highest waterproof up tos (60 meters) amongst waterproof cameras of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Display Diagonal

The smallest display diagonal of cameras that have been around for more than two years is 1.8", the largest is 7.7", and the average display diagonal is 3". At 3 inches, the DC1400 Pro has a fairly large display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras that were released around the same time as the DC1400 Pro.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3" screen cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon EOS 7D (£569.99), and the Ricoh WG-4 GPS (£274.99) is also worth considering.
