    Do any of the Sealife line of cameras have Image stabilization capabilities? I can't hold still above the water let alone under. I'm looking at a DC800 or 1000.

    Thanks,

    Reading the DC1000 Camera Manual I found the following note: "The underwater modes already have a built-in anti-shake mode which is programmed into the cameras software"

    It seem that it is a software based image stablization feature instead of an optical IS.... maybe Sealife Joe can clarify this.

    best regards,
    Brino!

    This is true. There are a couple of different methods for Image stabilization / Anti Shake. The most common and least expensive is in the programming of the camera to increase the shutter speed to stop blur.

    In our U/W modes we address the blur by increasing the shutter speeds to leesen the chance of movement. However if one decides to do the "twist" underwater while trying to take a picture....then it might be tough!
