          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          DOUGLAS A  Great price!
          Scott F  Will this fit on a sealife dc 1400?
          RONALD R  Yes it will. I had a DC1200 that flooded and swapped everything over when I bought the DC1400.
          brad c  In 100 ft. water clarity, how far can you be from your subjects and still get full, even color with dual SL980 lights?
          SANDRA K  Hi, regardless of depth or water clarity, being underwater, you probably should still stay from 6 inches to 6 feet from your subject. How you point your lights, and the battery strength will obviously affect your results. Detaching one of the lights or strobe to backlight your images will work wonders too. Keep in mind that the SeaLife cameras have a variety of manual settings you can opt for that will affect your results when working with this systems. Plus, whether or not you are videoing or photographing changes everything. Bottomline for me, was that after buying the dc1200 first, then the dc1400, and the video light, and the strobe, it still didn't yield me the results I wanted for diving in springs, caverns and caves, so a larger investment was required. I now shoot with a Canon in an Ikelite housing with a major video light and strobe. Great results with video and photography.
