Comments about Ikelite #4061 DS-161 Movie Substrobe:
I upgraded from a 10 year old DS-125 that we still use and find the 161 to be even better with the improved aiming light and increased manual controls. The "video" light is lacking a bit to be used as a true video light even if you have two but they work great for aiming and dive lights.
