This DS160 Substrobe with Ball Arm and Sync Cord Package from Ikelite bundles their underwater DS160 Substrobe with a double-ball arm equipped with 2 clamps and a sync cord for connection to a compatible Ikelite underwater camera housing. Also supplied are a lithium-ion battery pack and smart charger. The sync cord features connectors on each end for the ICS-5 bulkheads on the strobe and the housing. It is coiled in the middle to allow it to expand and contract depending on the length you need, and it can even be wrapped around the ball arm to keep it out of the way. The ball-joint clamps connect the straight double-ball jointed arm to the supplied connectors for the strobe and the grip handle of an Ikelite tray, creating one continuous, multi-jointed support system.

The strobe has a depth rating of 300'. It features a power rating of 160 watt-sec and a guide number of 76' at ISO 100, and provides a 90° angle of coverage, which is increased to 100° when using the included diffuser. The DS160 has a color temperature of 4800K. When combined with a compatible TTL system, it automatically adjusts brightness to provide ideal TTL flash exposure. Manual exposure control is also available. A bright, concentrated, 5W LED aiming light provides ample illumination for use as a focusing aid or a nighttime dive light. The LED turns off and on when the strobe is fired, keeping your photos free of bright spots.

      Comments about Ikelite DS160 Substrobe with Ball Arm and Sync Cord Package for Underwater Photography:

      Used on three different occasions so far. I use this for underwater portraits and love it.

      It is a bit heavy and the camera will become more negative as far as buoyancy goes. Also, the Ikelite arms are best adjusted once in the water.
