Illuminate the majestic underwater world in all its rich natural colors with Ikelite's DS161 Underwater Substrobe + Video Light, which features a depth rating of 328'. The DS161 is offered here with an NiMH battery pack, a smart charger with a US/North American plug, and a 1" Ball Mount Mark II. The strobe has a power rating of 160 watt-sec and a guide number of 38-76' at ISO 100, depending on whether you're underwater or above water. It provides a wide 90° angle of coverage, which is increased to 100° when you add the supplied diffuser for softening the light output. The 4800K color temperature is even warmer than daylight and restores hues that get absorbed underwater, bringing vibrancy and color accuracy back to your images.
