    I used to have one of these for an older digital camera (land). They work great. Never tried them underwater though.

    Denise,

    The problem isn't the sun. What I am referring to is viewing the photos in the house. I tried it again this morning just to be sure. I actually have to tilt the camera forward to view the picture I have taken. It is almost impossible to see looking straight on. Others I have shown this to have the same problem...they have to tilt the camera to see the photo clearly. I am leaving for a trip on Wednesday and won't be back until 7/18. Should I return the camera to SeaLife to have it checked out? Or should I take it to a camera shop here and have it looked at when I return.

    I have to do mine the same way. I attribute it to the fact that it is build for underwater and not primarily a land camera. So I tilt it a few degrees and I can see it fine. It still takes excellent pictures.

    How strange no one else has reported this besides you too? I would have the Sealife people check them out.

    The tilt to me is no more than my computer screen at work. SO little I don't worry about it. It just seems normal.

    They did check out a different screen problem for me, and promptly replaced the camera with no problem.

    jenlaur,

    We'd like to take a look at this for you. I will message you instructions on how to send your camera in to our service technician.
