The AF35 AutoFlash Kit is the choice in underwater strobe lighting for compact digital systems. No other system rivals it for affordability, durability and ease of use. Add a second strobe or video light to get the best results possiblefrom any compact camera system. This small and compact strobe has a coverage angle of 70 degrees and 80 degrees with the diffuser. Strobe runs on 4 AA Alkaline, NiCad or Ni-MH batteries (not included) and will give up to 300 flashes at full power on a set of batteries. The recycle time is 2.5 seconds andthe strobe has a color temperature of 5700 degrees Kelvin.
"AutoFlash" Wireless TTL Exposure: The proprietary AutoFlash built-in sensor transmits data from the camera's flash to the AF35 strobe, varying the strobe's power automatically to replicate "TTL" exposure. The AutoFlash system is designed to the camera's pre-flash sequence to fire the strobe at the correct time and maximize output.
No fiber optic cable needed: The AutoFlash sensor is positioned to provide the most reliable strobe triggering possible without exposed cables which require maintenance and can tangle or break.
Ergonomic styling: Two large, easy to read dials provide all of the settings necessary for control of the flash system. The AF35 strobe rear dial features: OFF, Auto (TTL) plus six Manual Power settings. The AutoFlash sensor rear dial provides simple plus/minus EV exposure compensation in the Auto (TTL) mode. The system's comfortable rubberized grip and neutral buoyancy make it a pleasurable addition to any housing. A flexible arm system allows quick repositioning of thestrobe angle and adds no weight to the system.
Clear compatibility: The AF35 AutoFlash kit comes standard with everything needed to attach to Ikelite ULTRAcompact housings, some Ikelite Compact Digital housings as well as most OEM housings from Olympus, Canon and Sony. The AutoFlash wireless TTL system is compatible with any camera which emits a pre-flash sequence (i.e. most digital cameras produced in the past few years. Canon compact cameras emit a pre-flash sequence in all camera modes except "M" manual mode).
The AF35 kit tray features two 12-24 mounting points spaced 3" apart for attachment to Ikelite housings. A central 1/4-20 tripod mounting point allows attachment to most non-Ikelite compact housings. Anti-rotation adapter plates are included for use with Olympus, Sony or Canon housings. Other brand housings are un-tested and may exhibit rotation on the tray. Strobe and components are depth rated to 300' (90 meters).
