Quality of Light
The circular flashtube design and soft white powder coated reflector produce a quality of light that is widely accepted as the perfect choice for professional underwater photography. The DS160 MKII beam is designed for proper spread and color temperature without adding a light-reducing diffuser. An optional Dome Diffuser #IK4069.2 is available to extend the spread of the light with only a half-stop reduction of set brightness.
Fire and repeat batteries
Our custom rechargeable cells power high frame rate firing from the first shot to the last. These premium quality industrial grade NiMH cells have been proven to out perform alkaline and lithium cells in real world underwater conditions, including the temperature fluctuations and storage conditions of the photographer diver. While 5 years is the average lifespan of a rechargeable pack, we routinely talk to shooters who are happily using 10-15 year old NiMH battery packs. The battery pack attaches quickly and easily with a unique toggle lock that prevents accidental floods. You don't even need to lubricate the o-ring. The strobe front is compatible with older NiMH Battery Packs #IK4066.5
Large and easy to use control dials
Users of manual strobe exposure settings prefer our large, click-stop dial controls which provide intuitive, tactical feedback of exposure setting. The robust dial controls are now even larger and taller for comfortable use with even the thickest gloves. A slide lock prevents the strobe from accidentally being turned on when not in use.
