SPEED Underwater 8.0 Mega Pixels IPX Digital Camera
with flash and diving mode
SPEED DC-6DS 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 8.0 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 1 hour to 2 hours. For cost saving purpose, you may choose to use hi-power rechargeable battery (not included). I tested Energizer Recharge (1000mAH) AAA battery and found that the performance is excellent.
The camera is designed to withstand water pressure for a maximum 60 minutes under total submerged condition within a depth of 10 feet (3 metres). It is IPX tested and was graded IPX8, the highest waterproof level in the waterproof scale. After using this camera for 30 to 60 minutes underwater, the camera shall leave the water and undergo a 10 minutes cleaning period for removing sand and drying the sea water. Please follow the instructions on the user manual on the procedure of maintenance. After this maintenance process, the camera may 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. Please note the specific requirements in using the macro mode. The recommended distance for best effect is 20 to 21cm (about 8 inches).
This digital camera is designed to be waterproof without any external housing. It weighs about 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 user manual is included with the camera, while the on-screen operation menu supports English and multiple European languages.
Finally, upon "road test" for filming and video shooting, the picture quality at the default 8.0 MP is stable, sharp and vivid. When the interpolated 20.0 MP mode is chosen, picture quality is sacrificed for the higher resolution. For video filming, the VGA mode (640 x 480 at 30fps) give good quality motion pictures with sound. The burst mode, which gives 3 consecutive snapshots at one click, is an added advantage for this camera to take sequence of high speed images.
Lomography with Underwater Digital Camera
Lomographers take a lighthearted approach to photography. They use techniques such as over-saturated colors, off-kilter exposure and blurring. This applies even in underwater environment. The on-screen manual of this camera provides several modes (scene, exposure, white balance, effect, burst mode) to create special photo effects, making some "happy accidents" in your snapshots.
