The size and weight of the DS51 make it the perfect choice for the traveling underwater photographer.

More information

Compact and easy to use: The DS51's intensity and angle of coverage are comparable to any strobe in its class. The strobe can easily switch between TTL/Auto and any of the six manual power settings through a large, easy-to-turn dial on the rear of the strobe. A simple battery door is easy to remove and replace and provides a clear view of the o-ring seal. The strobe's battery compartment is independently sealed from the electronics preventing further damage in the event of a flood.

TTL Flash Exposure: When combined with a compatible Ikelite TTL system or film TTL system, the DS51 automatically adjusts brightness to provide perfect exposure whether you're shooting macro, portrait or wide angle.

Recommended accessories: For example the convenient arm and sync cord combination kits for attachment of the DS51 to Ikelite TTL systems.

Functionality: The DS51's intensity and angle of coverage make it equally suited for macro and general photography. The strobe's wide-angle diffuser increases the angle-of-coverage up to 80 degrees, softens the light and helps to reduce backscatter. The strobe can easily switch between TTL/Auto and any of the six (6) manual power settings for complete control over lighting the subject. The DS51 Substrobe's power rivals strobes twice its size, recycles in a quick 3.5 seconds, and provides 200+ flashes on a set of batteries. Much shorter recycle times and more flashes per set of batteries can be realized during TTL operation or when using manual fractional powers.
