3-inch LCD monitor - the largest monitor of its class in compact digital cameras
The 3-inch widescreen LCD monitor allows you to check even the smallest details in the pictures you take and enjoy playing back movies with high definition. By using the LCD monitor hood and inner hood especially designed for the DX-1200HD housing you can further improve the underwater visibility and take pictures while tracking the movements of the subject on the LCD monitor.
Light and compact for better portability
The basic design was completely revised and the grips were further improved so even beginners can enjoy taking pictures easily. The new design will certainly satisfy the needs of full underwater diving scenes but it also offers portability and ease of use that allow it to be used for marine sports in general and winter sports as well, offering maximum convenience to the photographer.
