SeaLife Micro 2.0 Review – Leaky Housing & Malfunction
Underwater cameras provide an amazing service. They take pictures UNDER THE WATER! Underwater cameras that keep-on taking pictures under water provide an even MORE AMAZING service in my book. I wish that I could say that the SeaLife Micro 2.0 64GB camera is “MORE AMAZING” than other underwater cameras, but I can’t; can’t do that because the SeaLife camera broke and malfunctioned on us while scuba diving in the Cayman Islands. The real kick in the nuts here is that the SeaLife Micro 2.0 64GB underwater camera along with a SeaDragon 2500 light system, were Christmas presents for my son. Made me feel bad to have gifted such a POS camera to my kid. Maybe I should have spent more on his gift to get an underwater camera that actually works for more than about one hundred photos? -Yes, I should have done more research before spending around $1,000 USD on the camera and light combo.
Thank goodness we had our trusted GoPro cameras with us at the time or else, we would have been S.O.L. when it came to getting some cool underwater shots on the many scuba dives during our dive trip, like on the Kittiwake wreck for example. Stingray City for another example. Dive sites that are very special and cost a load of cash to get to when you consider the aggregate vacation price.
Check out these pictures of the leaky housing that caused the diving death of our SeaLife Micro 2.0 64GB underwater camera:
NOTE: The deepest depth the camera went to on our trip until its death the second day into our dive trip was about sixty five feet. -Not very deep!
Be VERY CAREFUL when it comes to buying underwater and dive cameras! I will be staying away from SeaLife cameras from now on or until I’m comfortable that they’re making a better product. SeaLife Micro 2.0 64GB FAIL.
Here’s how much the SeaLife Micro 2.0 64GB costs.
Are those water droplets INSIDE the camera housing?! YES, those are water droplets INSIDE the camera housing! Dammit!!!
