SeaLife Unveils ReefMaster Compact Camera with 4K Video
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, November 1, 2017 @ 10:00 AM (EST)

As the first day of this year’s DEMA Show in Orlando gets underway, SeaLife has unveiled a new compact underwater camera that’s capable of shooting 4K video at 30fps. The ReefMaster RM-4K is built around a new 14-megapixel CMOS sensor made by Panasonic (as opposed to the Sony sensor found in their recently released DC2000) and a fixed wide-angle fisheye lens.

Like the DC2000, the ReefMaster is a camera-plus-housing-in-one, and the small inner camera with its 2-inch LCD screen can be removed from the external housing, which also stores a desiccant to aborb moisture. Four buttons provide control over the camera’s functions, and Wi-Fi connectivity allows users to download and share images and video easily. The camera is depth-rated to 130 feet and accepts micro SDHC memory cards up to 128GB.

Shipping in February, the ReefMaster will retail for $260.


SeaLife® Introduces New ReefMaster® RM-4K Ultra Compact Underwater Camera

Orlando, FL - SeaLife is introducing the new ReefMaster RM-4K Ultra Compact Underwater Camera at the upcoming DEMA (Dive Equipment & Marketing Association) tradeshow. Featuring a pocket-sized design with 14 megapixel Panasonic® CMOS image sensor and ultra-high definition 4K 30fps video, its ultra compact, portable design ensures that divers and snorkelers can take the ReefMaster anywhere, from a wet environment to 130’ or 40 meters underwater. The camera captures brilliant 4K video with underwater color correction. The Fisheye Lens allows a close approach to the subjects while still keeping everything in the picture.

The unique ergonomic housing was especially designed for use underwater, while the housing is easy to hold and use even with one hand, the tough enclosure also features a unique closing system – a “Pressure Lock” thumb screw that exerts the optimal amount of pressure on the housing’s o-ring seal. The waterproof housing encases the small inner camera, and also stores a powerful drying agent called “Moisture Muncher” next to the camera that prevents internal fogging caused by heat and humidity trapped inside the housing.

Featuring a compact removable inner camera and a robust external housing that mounts easily to a light tray or can just as easily be hand-held due to its contoured ergonomic body. The easy, 4-button control system makes catching the action an effortless process. The ReefMaster offers WiFi sharing ability, so you can wirelessly preview, download and share pictures & videos to a smart phone or tablet with a free app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

The ReefMaster RM-4K has expandable memory with Micro SDHC memory cards up to 128GB, ensuring you have room to shoot & save all of your video content. It also has a time lapse function - shooting at set time intervals and saves as video file or series of still images.

The ReefMaster RM-4K is easily expandable with popular SeaLife accessories, including and not limited to one or two Sea Dragon Photo/Video/Dive lights, and the super macro lens. Its 2.0” TFT color LCD screen creates a large, vibrant and easily visible display on the small camera.

The ReefMaster RM-4K includes the ReefMaster 4K inner camera, ReefMaster underwater camera housing, wrist strap, USB cable 30”/75cm, camera pouch.

The new ReefMaster RM-4K is expected to be available for shipment in February of 2018.
