This is the world’s first action camera developed for divers, by divers. The Paralenz Dive Camera is tough, smart, and reliable so you can focus on what matters the most - your dive.

The Paralenz camera requires a Micro-SD card (Min U3 Speed Class, Max 128GB) for video recording storage that is NOT included.

  • DCCTM – Depth controlled Color Correction
  • Waterproof to {200 m | 650 ft} depth - No housing required
  • Compact and extremely durable for any underwater environment
  • Over 2 hours of 4K recording time
  • Includes Camera, 2 mounts, wrist strap, USB cable, spare O-rings and lubricant

The differences between what we are currently shipping and their recently announced "plus" version are some minor cosmetic changes, mostly packaging and price. As Paralenz made minor iterative "inline" changes to their camera during small manufacturing runs, the part number and packaging did not change. The most significant inline change between the very early and later runs was to change the end cap from plastic to metal. Eventually when the product received a significant price increase it was repackaged with a new name, the "plus" designation. Our current inventory at Dive Gear Express was ordered and received just prior to the "plus" announcement. Paralenz tells us there is no significant difference between our current inventory and the "plus" version; our inventory includes the metal end cap. That makes our current inventory a terrific value until we have to reorder at the higher price.

The Paralenz Dive Camera is made from military grade aluminum and the compact shockproof cylindrical design is also insulated with a special thermal foam that minimizes battery discharge even in extreme cold water. The buttons of the Paralenz are magnetic with vibration feedback – so you can operate even with thick gloves. The updated design now includes end-caps that are CNC milled from aluminium with a scratch-resistant glass window.

Most other underwater action cameras footage is either tinted green or blue unless you use additional filters. No need to think about filters or technical stuff during your dive with the Paralenz. The camera has a built in pressure sensor and auto corrects the color according to your current depth. If you plan to dive below {65 ft | 20 m} a wide beam flashlight is suggested for the best video image quality.

It works as both a still camera as well as a video camera. Simply press the button once to take a picture and simply hold to turn on video mode.

DEPTH AND TEMPERATURE IN YOUR VIDEOS

Because the Paralenz is equipped with both a temperature sensor and pressure sensor, this allows the camera to log your dive depth and water temperature throughout your dive and then optionally display that data in your videos and pictures when you playback. At what exact depth did you encounter the manta ray or find the cave entrance? With the Paralenz Dive Camera you will always know – and always be able to re-experience and share that special moment.

SHARE THE EXPERIENCE
The Paralenz Dive Camera starts logging your dive as soon as it is below the surface. Our easy-to-use mobile app generates a graph where it links photos and footage with the time and depth. Your dive logs can easily be shared with your friends. Collect your dives and access all the recordings along with number of dives, max depth, average temperature, total time spent underwater and much, much more.

NOTE: We strongly suggest adding the optional DGX Padded storage bag for this camera as the included hard case is NOT dive boat or water friendly. The included hard case is designed for shipping protection and not intended and does not function as an expedition bag.

  1. Awesome Dive Camera - Paralenz!

    Hats off to DGX for getting me the camera REALLY fast in time for vacation in Grand Cayman. I posted videos and pics from the dives we did and folks couldn't believe the clarity and color that came out w/the camera. I don't like to have to do much in terms of editing photos/videos... this camera does it all for you. You won't regret the purchase. The DCC is fantastic!!

    Amazing delivery as usual. I sold my flagship sony 4k action cam for this and couldn't be happier with the swap. It's extremely easy to use at depth with gloves on and the video image is fantastic in color and clarity. Like mentioned above, do not use the app yet. Load the firmware direct from the card. Happy diving!

  3. Paralenz

    This camera suits my diving to a tee. It is primarily for video and with the depth color correction feature it takes tremendous 2.7k and 4 k quality dive videos without an external filter. The close focus range is about 6 inches so it's not for macro. The Paralenz is easy to use and very convenient. I tuck it into my rash guard or wetsuit sleeve when not in use. I have had many compliments about the video quality since I purchased the camera. I've dealt with their after sales service and they are very responsive and fixed my issue within a couple of days. I am recommending Paralenz to everyone I dive with these days.

  4. camera is so good...the floater was not

    Unbelievable shipping! The stuff we ordered were delivered right at our doorstep in the Philippines in just 5 days! After that, I dived the paralenz camera a week after we received it and it lived up to it's reputation and write-ups! everything was perfect for what we intend to use it including the video light.
    the floaters on the 3rd person viewer was a disappointment though. It started to take in water at 40 feet and by the time I finished with the trial dive, the floaters were flooded.

  5. Awesome camera, DON"T USE THE APP

    By

    on

    We have a few underwater cameras in the $500 price range, and this one is hands down the best. I don't even touch the others anymore, and even carry the paralenz with me occasionally to take pictures on land. WITH ONE CAVEAT: Don't use the APP. Pretend it isn't there. It actually corrupts the camera. I was on a dive trip and the camera took awesome pictures and videos, until I made one evening the mistake to start the APP - the rest of the dive trip the camera took the pictures, but couldn't write them anymore to the SD card. I found out at the end of the trip. I had to contact their support, reformat the SD card, reset the camera and reinstall the firmware to be able to use it again. DON'T USE THE APP.

Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING

The Paralenz Dive Camera will only perform as well as its Micro SD memory card allows. The minimum speed rating of the Micro SD-card must be Speed Class 3 (U3) and the maximum storage capacity supported by Paralenz is 128GB. If the SD-card is not at least U3 speed rated we can't guarantee the performance and you may experience freezing problems, especially when recording in higher definitions. The genuine SD-card brands Paralenz recommends and have tested to perform the best are: Sandisk Extreme Series, Sandisk Extreme PRO Series, Sandisk Extreme PLUS Series. (Please note the Samsung brand micro-SD cards are not compatible with the Paralenz camera.) We have also seen problems caused by poorly performing counterfeit SD cards widely sold by unknown 3rd parties through discount marketplaces such as eBay.

We have heard of the Paralenz Dive Camera being knocked out of it's mask mount when the diver jumps in to the water, possibly due to force of entry or because the camera was not fully locked in to the mount. When using the mask mount, we strongly recommend threading the wrist strap on the camera around or through the mask strap as protection against loss should the camera become dislodged.
