Product Details

Extra-large flash capacitors and a dedicated rechargeable battery pack provide twice the speed and energy of the next smaller strobe.

The DS160 series strobes are specifically designed for underwater use to provide the most colourful and natural wide-angle lighting on the market. A professional-grade round xenon flash tube and powder coated reflector produce perfectly a soft, stunningly warm 4800K light.

Optional accessories for corded, fibre optic, or remote triggering.

The built-in combination of video and modelling light is suitable for close-up, macro, portrait, and wide-angle fill-in work, and as a focus assist light. Output is adjustable in 10 brightness settings plus an SOS mode for emergency situations. The light automatically turns off and back on when taking a still photo to avoid overexposure.

Ikelite’s famous quick-release toggle system connects the battery pack to the strobe front with ease and confidence. A high capacity rechargeable NiMH battery pack provides longevity and rapid firing that no current set of AA batteries can provide.
