Light is one of the most important elements in underwater photography, and an external flash (External Flashes are also commonly referred to as a “strobes”, both terms are appropriate) is the preferred method for photographers to get the maximum and most effective amount of light onto the underwater subject. Proper use of an underwater external flash or strobe will add color and brilliance to your still images. SeaLife has several universal flash options with the Sea Dragon Universal Flash, available as a kit with grip and tray, or as the flash head only; or as a dual system consisting of two strobes, or a strobe paired with a Sea Dagon “Auto” LED light that disengages for a second when the flash is used.
It’s important to note that a proper external flash or strobe should have plenty of adjustment range, to light the subject from varying directions or angles, so that you can control the exposure to your liking. For that we offer the Flex-Connect range of mounts, arms, trays and grips.
The Sea Dragon Flash mounts to any compact camera with a built in flash and takes 4 AA batteries (not included). For best results, we recommend rechargeable Panasonic Eneloop Pro 2550mAh batteries. On a full charge, the strobe should fire more than 500 times.
