Ikelite DS160 overview

  • 1Description

Add this Ikelite DS160 Substrobe to any of their compact or DSLR camera housings featuring their proprietary TTL electrical bulkhead. The package bundles the DS160 strobe, NiMH battery, charger, and a diffuser. Grab an optional Ikelite 5-pin TTL sync cord and a ball-jointed arm, and you'll be ready to connect the strobe to your underwater camera housing.

The TTL/manual DS160 strobe has a 300' depth rating. It features a round flash tube and a custom powder-coated reflector designed to deliver soft, even coverage. The strobe has a power rating of 160 watt-sec and a guide number of 76' at ISO 100. The 90° coverage angle is increased to 100° with the supplied diffuser, which also softens the beam to prevent backscatter, glare, and hard shadows. Additionally, the DS160 is warmer than daylight at a color temperature of 4800K, and will help you correct the blue color cast that occurs beneath the surface by restoring hues that get absorbed. A bright, concentrated LED aiming light works well for focusing or as a night diving aid, and turns off when the strobe is fired to prevent hot spots. The high-capacity battery pack and the TTL flash exposure enabled by sync cord connection allow for the high-speed shooting necessary to capture fast-moving subjects, such as sharks and eels. To shoot with two strobes, you can use the optional TTL Dual Sync Cord. If you opt for manual mode, you can select from 10 power settings in half-stop increments.

The 7.2V, 3300mAh NiMH battery has a fast recycle time of 1.6 sec and provides over 225 full-power flashes on a single charge. A quick-release toggle system makes quick, easy work of attaching the battery and also virtually ensures that flooding will not occur. The Smart Charger runs on 100-240VAC power for worldwide use and includes adapter plugs for North America, Europe, the UK, and Australia. Charge termination feedback is indicated by an LED on the front of the charger
