Mini II Dive and Sport
What is it: A 9-megapixel, go-anywhere digital camera from SeaLife.
Who it is for: If you’re an outdoors nut looking for the great water or all-weather camera to capture underwater shots and outdoor-adventure photos.
Why you’ll like it: It’s waterproof and shockproof. The Mini II has been tested and guaranteed to operate underwater at depths to 130 feet without an external housing. In addition to ensuring a sure grip, rubber armoring also protects the camera from a 6-foot drop.
The highlights: The Mini II’s new underwater modes are easy to use and eliminate the common blue hues of images taken underwater. The Land Auto mode automatically controls exposure and internal flash. It is powered by two AAA batteries and accepts SD and SDHC storage cards up to 8 GB.
Cost: The suggested retail price is $259.95.
