Ikelite #4069.1 Dichroic (Excitation) Filter DS160/161 For Fluoro Diving
Fluorescence will give you a whole new perspective on the world beneath the waves. With Ikelite’s range of excitation and barrier filters, you can convert your existing lights into a fluorescence set-up. Use the Ikelite Yellow Barrier and Dichroic Excitation filters to convert your existing underwater photography equipment into Fluoro diving setup.
To see the fluorescence underwater you will need a light either a UV light or add a Dichroic Excitation filter to your current Ikelite light. You will also need a Yellow Barrier filter for your camera and your mask.
What you’ll generally see is a glow emitted from a variety of corals and animals, mostly in greens, blues, and reds. You may find two of the same type of corals—one which fluoresces, and one which doesn’t. Dive your favourite spots in a different light and see what you’ve been missing!
Fluorescence photography is best captured at night but it can also be taken throughout the day, however you will need to experiment with very powerful, filtered lights and under exposing ambient light.
This filter will fit Ikelite DS161, DS160 & DS125 strobes and can be removed and replaced while underwater.
