SL740 Inner Camera 3q Right
SeaLife has announced the World's first underwater digital camera with a 1inch CMOS sensor, which should give better low-light and underwater performance than a normal compact camera. The DC2000 uses a Sony 20 megapixel 1inch BSI CMOS sensor, plus a bright f/1.8 31mm equivalent lens. 

The camera comes with 4 underwater shooting modes, plus 3 built-in underwater digital color correction filters including shallow water (snorkelling), deep water (diving), or "green" water for when there is algae bloom. There's also manual white balance control.
