This Ikelite Diffuser will fit their DS50 and DS51 Substrobes, as well as their AF35 strobe. It increases angle of coverage by approximately 10° and softens flash output to reduce backscatter, glare, and hard shadows. The snap-on diffuser reduces brightness by approximately one stop. Two holes allow you to attach an optional lanyard when the diffuser is not in use.

                This diffuser is a must with the Ikelite substrobe and works wonderfully while attached. Unfortunately, the manufacturer needs to change the design so that it fits better or has a cord or strap to connect it to the strobe so that it is not lost if it comes loose.

                      This is the second diffuser I have had by Ikelite. Both lasted 2 dives. It doesn't sit tightly into the flash attachment, and when you try to secure it, the tabs will break. Considered trying to affix it with duck tape.

                      I realy like my two AF35 strobes but the diffusers are very easy to loose underwater. You realy need to tie the diffusers to the strobe but when you take them off underwater you need to be carefull so that they don't float in front of the camera.

                          I is a good diffuser. I use it in most of my dives with a ikelite substrobe 51s. But with time the attachment will became dry and it will be easy to loose it during deco or commig back to the boat. For this reason I always secure it with a silicone cord.

                          These work really well to give a nice even light with the substrobes. You get some nasty hotspots without them. Awesome product, only problem is they don't come with a part that attaches to the strobes...have to do it with duct tape or whatnot.

                          Definitely needed for strobe use to avoid serious hot spots.
