About this item

The Sea & Sea DX-1200HD Compact Digital 12 MP Camera has 3-inch widescreen LCD monitor which allows you to check even the smallest details in the pictures you take and enjoy playing back movies with high definition. By using the LCD monitor hood and inner hood especially designed for the DX-1200HD housing you can further improve the underwater visibility and take pictures while tracking the movements of the subject on the LCD monitor.

The basic design was completely revised and the grips were further improved so even beginners can enjoy taking pictures easily. The new design will certainly satisfy the needs of full underwater diving scenes but it also offers portability and ease of use that allow it to be used for marine sports in general and winter sports as well, offering maximum convenience to the photographer. The optional Close-UP Lens 125 or Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for DX-860G can be attached/ detached even underwater (Close-UP Lens 125 requires the optional Close-UP Lens Ring for DX-1200HD). Using the wide-angle conversion lens, you can get a wider area in the picture even if you get close to the subject. Using the Close-UP Lens 125, you can take pictures with a larger magnification.
