Underwater maximum 16.0 Mega Pixels HD720P Digital Camera
with flash and diving mode
Fotopix DW-7Y Waterproof Digital Camera is an ultra compact IPX8 level waterproof digital camera. It captures the motions underwater up to a maximum depth of 10 feet (3 metres). With a high precision 5.0 Mega Pixels CMOS sensor, strong flash light and its diving mode video filming capability, this underwater digital camera qualifies as the ultimate gadget for snapshot photography and underwater video shooting.
This waterproof digital camera supports up to 32GB SDHC memory card, and uses 2 x AAA alkaline battery. Battery life lasts for 2 hours. For cost saving purpose, you may choose to use hi-power rechargeable battery. I tested Energizer Recharge (1000mAH) AAA battery and found that the performance is excellent.
The camera is designed to withstand water pressure for a specific amount of time under total submerged condition. It is IPX tested and was graded IPX8, the highest waterproof level in the waterproof scale. It can be operated at a depth of 10 feet underwater for a continuous one hour. Thereafter, the camera shall undergo 15 minutes cleaning period for removing sand and drying the sea water. Then it can go for another round of one-hour underwater use!
For the convenience of user, the camera has preset diving mode with automated setting of white balance in the underwater condition. The macro mode is also easy to reach and the digital zooming mode is in the right place for easy operation.
This digital camera is designed to be waterproof without any external housing. It weighs 5 oz (140g) with battery and strap on, and is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, boating, surfing, skiing, as well as beach and camping activities. A detailed English user manual is included with the camera, while the on-screen operation menu supports English, Arabic and multiple European languages.
Finally, the moment of truth comes. The picture quality at the default 5.0 MP (2560 x 1920) is stable, sharp and vivid. When the interpolated 16.0 MP mode is chosen, picture quality is sacrificed for the higher resolution. Pictures taken under 2X digital zoom maintain more or less the same good quality as the pictures without zooming. For video filming, both the HD720P mode (1280 x 720 at 30fps) and the VGA mode (640 x 480 at 30fps) give good quality motion pictures.
Lomography with Underwater Digital Camera
Lomographic photography adopts a lighthearted approach in taking snapshots. Lomographers use techniques such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure and blurring in their work to create special effects of imperfection. This camera has several white blance modes (sunny, cloudy, tungsten, fluorescent, special WB for diving) as well as two other colour effects selection (B&W, Sepia) for lomographic effects in underwater environment. You may also make adjustments on the EV compensation to create the best unconventional picture for a particular precious moment.

Best Performance Guidelines
For best performance of this camera, please consider the following useful information:
(A) Opening the latch of the battery compartment
Suppose you are a right hand user, this is what you will typically do when opening the battery door.
Hold the camera with your right hand, with the middle finger near the shutter. Now use the nail of your right hand thumb to push the self-retractable door lock to the up position. Keep the door lock in the up position.
Then slide the battery door to the right with your left hand thumb. While you are sliding the door to the right, you still have to keep the self-retractable lock in the up position.
(B) SD / SDHC memory card
Please use Class 4 or above SDHC card for better performance. Sandisk and Toshiba SDHC cards demonstrate better performance from our experience.
Make sure the AAA battery you use is "alkaline" battery. "Energizer" is a commonly used alkaline battery type which provide a stable performance. There are two types of Energizer alkaline battery: The Energizer Advanced is a more longlasting alkaline battery, while the Energizer Max is an everyday use alkaline battery.
Rechargeable battery can be used for cost saving in the long run. The Energizer Recharge is a typical high capacity rechargeable battery which is suitable for digital cameras. Please choose the highest capacity type (1000mAh) when you choose rechargeable AAA battery.

To enhance the life time of this camera, please follow these advices as much as possible:
Before using in seawater, user must: 1. ensure the area surrounding the battery door has no sand, dust or foreign objects on it; 2. ensure the battery door is closed and locked properly;
During the time of use in seawater, user must: 1. avoid opening and closing the battery door with wet hands; 2. avoid going to a depth greater than 3 meters; 3. keep the camera away from highly pressurized water such as water jets; 4. avoid bumping or knocking the camera underwater, otherwise the battery door might accidentally open.
After using in seawater, user must: 1. put the camera in fresh water with battery door properly closed. Soak the camera in fresh water for 5 minutes; 2. After that, wipe the camera and the lens dry with a small absorbent cleaning towel; 3. Place the camera in a well ventilated cool place to dry naturally; 4. Wait until the camera is completely dry, then open the battery door. Use a soft cleaning cloth to clean away seawater, sand and impurities around the door cover and the edge of battery compartment; 5. do not use any soapy water, mild detergents or alcohol to clean the camera.
