Ikelite DS230 Overview

The Ikelite DS230 213W Underwater TTL Strobe with Modeling Light and US power supply packs more flash capacitance to cut through the water and deliver sharper, more colorful, professional-looking wide-angle images. The DS230 has the power you need, whether you're shooting in a pool studio or out in the open water.

The DS230 incorporates a powerful, 205-lumen wide beam COB LED light array, allowing you to effortlessly switch between stills and video.
The DS230 supports a wide variety of triggering methods to fit virtually any application in, out of, and around the water.
A 5000K color temperature balances with available light underwater to provide richer coloring and deeper blue water backgrounds when shooting at wide angles. Models' skin tones will look more natural and reds and oranges will pop with more vibrant color.
A custom formulated ABS-PC blend makes the strobe fundamentally corrosion-proof and over 0.5 lb lighter than aluminum body strobes.
The robust dial controls are now even larger and taller for comfortable use with even the thickest gloves. A slide lock prevents the strobe from accidentally being turned on when not in use.
Trigger the DS230 directly from your camera using either an electrical sync cord with an ICS-5 plug or by adding an optional fiber-optic converter. The DS230 supports exposure communication with most popular camera models using high-accuracy TTL converters.
Remote triggering is supported by both optional extension cords and/or optical slave converters. Position your strobes at a distance from your camera for a variety of creative lighting setups, including cave lighting, off-camera wreck lighting, and pool studio photography.
The battery pack attaches quickly and easily with a unique toggle lock that prevents accidental floods. You don't even need to lubricate the O-ring. The strobe front is compatible with older NiMH battery packs or the DS230 strobe battery pack.
The custom rechargeable cells power a high frame rate firing from the first shot to the last. These premium quality industrial-grade NiMH cells have been proven to outperform alkaline and lithium cells in real-world underwater conditions, including the temperature fluctuations and storage conditions of the photographer diver.
