Manufacturer's Description

Compact, mega powered camera for superb photography underwater and on land.

Main Features of the 8000G Camera

Razor-sharp images thanks to 8.24 million effective pixels
The 8000G captures images using 8.24 million effective pixels that clearly record the details in every frame. This high-end compact digital camera processes mass image data at high speed and simultaneously reduces image noise.

Zooms from 28mm wide angle to 85mm telephoto
The 8000G’s zoom lens contains nine lens elements in seven groups and employs an optical 3x zoom that expands to 28mm at full wide angle and captures ample light around its edges.

Clean and elegant body design
The 8000G camera has a stylish aluminum alloy body that fits comfortably in your hand. The platinum-silver-coated grip makes the camera easy to hold and shoot.

Shoots movies
The 8000G camera goes beyond still images: it shoots movies! It can capture high-quality moving images (AVI format, 30 fps) underwater, and can shoot until the camera’s memory is filled.

ADJ button takes you straight to preferred parameter settings
You can customize the 8000G camera’s ADJ button to display parameter settings that you use most often: exposure compensation, white balance, ISO, and other functions.

Histogram display gives you real-time exposure data
You can display a real-time histogram on the LCD monitor while you’ re shooting so you can see the light levels in your image, or display the histogram for images you’ ve already captured.

Adjustable white balance
White balance works a little like a color filter. The 8000G offers six white-balance modes: Auto, Daylight, Overcast, Tungsten Light, Fluorescent Light, and One-Push (Manual Setting) that manually sets the white balance.

Exposure compensation
You can set exposure compensation in fine increments of 1/3 EV, perfect for capturing images with tricky lighting. Exposure compensation ranges from +2.0 EV to -2.0 EV in 1/3 EV increments for fine adjustment.

Aperture Prioritized Mode and Manual Exposure Mode
The aperture prioritized exposure mode lets you set the size of the iris opening in the camera’s lens. You can use it to control the depth of field. The 8000G supports three types of power supply: a high-capacity rechargeable battery, AA batteries, and an AC adapter. The rechargeable battery lets you work for extended periods without battery change, and captures about 400 images when it’s fully charged. AA batteries are a convenient backup if you find yourself unexpectedly without a charged rechargeable battery; they will capture about 80 images when fresh. And if you’re shooting indoors, the optional AC adapter captures an unlimited number of images.Manual Focus/AF Target MoveManual focus allows you to manually set the focus in conditions where automatic focus can’t get a lock on your subject.

Three types of power supply
The 8000G supports three types of power supply: a high-capacity rechargeable battery, AA batteries, and an AC adapter. The rechargeable battery lets you work for extended periods without battery change, and captures about 400 images when it’s fully charged.

Main Features of the DX-8000G Housing

  • Built with a solid grip protector for a secure hold underwater.
  • Ruggedly constructed with a depth rating of 55m / 180ft.
  • Comes with a special inner and outer LCD monitor hood to improve LCD visibility in strong light.
