Not sure if that pygmy seahorse is in focus? With a click you can activate Focus Peaking mode. The high resolution screen switches to black and white for maximum contrast. Sharp areas are highlighted in bold red outlines making it easier to follow focus when subjects are on the move.
450’ DEPTH RATING.
The rugged aluminum WahooHD housing is engineered for technical diving to 450 feet and features oversized control knobs for easy use with gloves. You might not dive that deep, but your monitor can.
