More information

Strobes with a straight flashtube may be capable of high powers, but require the addition of a diffuser to spread out their sharp, rectangular beam pattern and reduce the harsh hot spot. The DS162 beam is designed for proper spread and color temperature without adding a light-reducing diffuser. The optional Dome Diffuser #IK4069.2 is available to extend the spread of the light with only a half-stop reduction of apparent brightness. Electrical sync connection and a high-capacity battery pack provide the speed you need to capture fast moving subjects like sharks and sailfish at just the right millisecond. When combined with a compatible TTL system, the DS162 automatically adjusts brightness to provide perfect exposure whether you're shooting macro, portrait or wide angle. Focus on your camera settings and composition and enjoy the increased number of flashes and even faster recycle time you'll get when working with a TTL system.

To get accurate TTL exposure add a TTL converter.

Built-In Video Light.
The DS162 incorporates a powerful, 2500 lumen wide beam COB LED light array allowing you to effortlessly switch between still and video. The video light doubles as an aiming light and automatically turns off and back on each time you take a photo. In video mode light output is controlled in low, medium, and high power settings plus an SOS mode to signal others in emergency situations.

Recycle Time + Battery Life
NiMH batteries are work horses, and a great choice for high powered rechargeable devices due to their performance and reliability at a more affordable price point than lithium ion. This high capacity battery pack provides professional quality power and speed flash after flash. Expect a lightning fast 0,1-1,0 second recycle time and from 300 flashes to thousands on a single charge depending on power setting. Shooting TTL or in a fractional power setting? You'll get very close to instantaneous recycle time and up to 3X as many flashes... plenty for a day of diving! This battery recharges in half the time of its Li-Ion counterpart for quick topping off before your night dive. 
Our famous quick-release toggle system attaches the battery pack with ease and confidence, making a flooded battery virtually impossible.

Smart Charging
The included Smart Charger for NiMH accepts variable voltage in the 100-240V range and includes AC adapter Europe. Smart charging provides safety and helps to increase the lifetime of the pack by switching over to a trickle charge when the battery pack is fully recharged. Feedback on charging cycle is indicated by an LED on the front of the charger.
