Product Highlights
  • For Small Housings Only
  • With Right-Hand AutoFlash sensor
  • Flex-Arm and Dual Tray
  • Rated up to 300'

The Ikelite AutoFlash AF35 Secondary Strobe Kit is used to add a second strobe for broader and more even coverage. This is very important when using wide-angle lenses.

The dual tray attaches directly to most small Ikelite housings for point-and-shoot digital cameras. The kit features a contoured handle with a rubber grip for added comfort, and the pop-bead Flex Arm offers flexibility in flash positioning. No tools are needed to remove the handle, arm and strobe assembly from the tray for packing. The system is lightweight above water for travel and approximately neutrally buoyant underwater when attached to an Ikelite housing with camera.

The exposure selector dial on the side of the sensor provides fine-tuning to optimize results with a variety of digital still cameras. Once you find an exposure level that you like, leave the dial on that number for automatic operation. For advanced users, the selector dial can be used as exposure compensation while remaining in automatic mode. The flash also features six manual power settings for full control over exposure.

An external flash is your most important accessory. The ocean is one big, blue filter. As you descend, the reds and oranges quickly become muted shades of blue and gray. Shining a color corrected light source on your subject will bring back your subject's natural color.

Note! For small Ikelite housings only; not compatible with larger housings such as the one for the Canon G11.

This kit is for adding a second strobe for broader and more even coverage. The kit includes the strobe head, dual tray and right-hand flash assembly with AutoFlash sensor.
35 Watt/seconds power with a guide #16 (underwater at ISO 100).

      Comments about Ikelite AF-35 Secondary Strobe Kit:

      I found the strobe to be very good for increasing the lighting of my subjects, particularly for macrophotography. I had no problems with it as long as the camera was set right and I aimed it right. The use of an aiming light would help to insure that the light hits your subject. I would definitely buy it again.

        Comments about Ikelite AF-35 Secondary Strobe Kit:

        After starting to use this strobe with my Ikelite UltraCompact housing and Nikon Coolpix, my underwater pics went from murky to beautiful. It makes all the difference in the world on pictures in low-vis situations and depths greater than 20-25 feet where the reds start to otherwise disappear. You just have to make sure you position it properly when using it by aiming it over your subject a bit and not directly at it because it will either wash it out or put a spot somewhere else on the photo. Having both the left and right strobes makes it easier, and it is not as heavy as I thought ti would be to lug around.

            Comments about Ikelite AF-35 Secondary Strobe Kit:

            I already owned the primary AF35 strobe which I used with my Olympus Stylus Tough camera. I found that one strobe really isn't enough light, and I had problems with shadows. Adding this second strobe cured the problem.

            Like the other, this strobe is durable and easy to use. I use rechargeable batteries and change them before every dive. The flash recharge time was faster than my camera's flash would recharge, so I wasn't waiting on the strobes.

            They feel a bit clunky above water, but underwater they are only slightly negative and very comfortable to handle.

            I wish the included diffusers had attachment cords, but it is easy to make some with some nylon line.

            Comments about Ikelite AF-35 Secondary Strobe Kit:

            The flash works great and is easy to install. The Flash itself looks good and seems like good quality. But I find that the dual-tray looks and feel a little "cheap". When Both the flashes are installed, the tray bends (overwater) and it looks like it could break easily. Underwater, it is not such a big problem but the tray bends a little. Still, for the price, this a very acceptable item.
