DPReview Reviews SeaLife DC2000
By Joseph Tepper, June 12, 2018 @ 11:45 AM (EST)

Popular photography website DPReview has published a review of the SeaLife DC2000–calling it “the best tough camera you’ve never heard of.” If you’re a diver or regular reader of DPG, then you probably have heard of the DC2000, SeaLife’s high-end compact underwater camera. 

What is interesting about the DPReview review of the camera is framing the DC2000 as a “tough camera.” It certainly meets the criteria with a depth rating of 60 feet (without the housing) and a solid build. But as underwater photographers, we tend to only think of SeaLife and similar tough compacts for diving purposes when combined with a housing. The DPReview gives a wider context to using the SeaLife DC2000 as a topside camera in “tough” conditions—think beaches and on boats.

“I'm going to keep hoping and praying for one of the established manufacturers to make something that can approach the philosophy of the DC2000,” DPReview reviewer Carey Rose writes.

The review of the DC2000 and accompanying sample gallery are worth a glance to see how the camera performs shooting topside.
