About Big Blue FF1X5 AFO 250 Lumens LED Light

Capture the underwater world with perfect pictures every time with this ultra compact and powerful focus light. A light with AFO feature, gives the user the opportunity to use it as a focus light in photography. Today's modern digital cameras have very accurate auto focus features but they require a certain amount of light and contrast in order to function. Sometimes this is a problem underwater, so having a continuous light mounted above the port will help the camera to focus. The FF-1x5 AFO is perfect for this purpose since the Auto Flash-Off function will automatically turn off the light for 1 seconds when your strobes fire. This way the focus light will not affect your photo even if you are shooting at a slow shutter speed. The 1x 5W LED provides 250 lumens of light that should be bright enough to assist your camera's auto focus even on night dives.

The FF-1x5 AFO is powered with 4 AA batteries; either Alkaline or NiMH will work. It has a burn time of up to 2 hours at full Lumens. The light is constructed from aluminum alloy, and is anodized, to be anti-corrosive. The FF-1x5 AFO can also be used as a back-up light for cave diving or as a primary for some diving situations. The light has a color temperature of 6500 K, and a beam angle from 60 degrees. The light has a unique "Flying-Fish" shape, and features a rotary magnetic switch with transportation lock.

The light is equipped with a Thermal Protection System that helps prevent the light from overheating by cutting off the power, in case of prolonged use on land, or when the torch has been exposed to temperatures above158 F (70 C). Light is Depth Rated to 330' (100 meters), the front glass is made from Tempered Optical Glass and the light has a double O-Ring Seal. The long lasting LED Lamp is guaranteed a life span of 50,000 hours, reducing the need for periodic replacement of the lamp.

The Torch measures 2.2" x 8.1" (56 x 206 mm) and weighs 16.23 oz (460 g) with batteries (on land) and is negatively buoyant underwater weighing 4.23 oz (120 g). Included with the torch is a 1" (26 mm) standard Ball Joint for photography mounting, a Lantern Grip for uses as a dive light and a wrist lanyard.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  what exactly is a rotary magnetic switch? In short, how do I turn it on and off?
MARK A  Twist the black collar just behind the lens. The "magnetic" part just refers to the mechanism - there is a magnet in the collar that triggers the switch. Thus no hole in the casing to leak.
vincent l  "Brett H: Yes this light includes both the handle pictured and the 1" ball mount." If it comes with a 1" ball mount, does that mean i'll need additional: - a double clip - a hot shoe adapter DA001 to completely mount the light to my camera housing?
Brett H  Yes, you will need a double clip such as this: and from there on down however you attach it to your housing or base, a hotshoe adapter is a good way to connect it up if you have a mount on your camera: .
Ming W  Does this light come with the one inch standard ball joint?
