Each Underwater Camera Mask will be tested and certified to a depth rating of 100 meters / 330 ft during production. This model has adjustable light attachments available to help bring out the color and detail that is generally lost while diving below 5 meters. Large lever style buttons allow for greater dexterity while wearing diving gloves. A darker silicon skirt helps to shield the peripheral vision from distraction, while still permitting the LED light indicator to signal the user when recording photos and videos. The outer housing is a dark grey color to help camouflage the diver when needed.
