SeaLife® introduces new Sea Dragon™ Underwater Digital Flash
Moorestown, NJ – SeaLife® Underwater Cameras introduces the new powerful and more compact Sea Dragon digital underwater flash for use with all SeaLife camera models as well as any camera that has a built-in flash. The Sea Dragon Flash is part of SeaLife’s new Sea Dragon lighting system with Flex-Connect™ grips, arms, and trays that allow assembly and disassembly in seconds. The flash, as part of a complete lighting system including camera, batteries and charger, fits in the smallest and lightest camera gear case ever seen in underwater photography, making travel incredibly easy.
The Sea Dragon Flash is powered by 4 AA batteries that allow 150 flashes.
The flash can be hand held with its Flex-Connect grip or mounted to one or more extendable flexible arms and trays that attach to the standard ¼-20 tripod mount of any SeaLife or other camera. A Dual Tray holds two flashes or a flash and light combination, and a third light can be mounted to the cold-shoe of the SeaLife DC1400 camera and most other cameras in underwater housings.
Not only the flash, but also its battery compartment, is permanently waterproof rated to 200 feet/60 meter – so in the event of improper closure of the compartment, the light unit and electronics are not compromised.
The increased power allows a wide 80 degree beam angle or an even wider 100 degree beam angle with the included diffuser.
The rugged flexible arms, trays, and grips do not use nuts or bolts, but easily click together and can also be quickly taken apart with the push of a button. This means that a complete system of a camera, flash, two lights, tray with dual arms and grips, batteries and charger fit in a compact lightweight case which can easily be packed in carry-on luggage – a great advantage with today’s airline baggage policies.
In close-up macro photography, the flexible arms allow bending of the lights or flash 100 degrees and within inches of the subject for creative light effects. Alternatively, the Flex Arms allow spreading the lights far away from the camera to avoid backscatter in low visibility waters.
The new Sea Dragon Flash also supplies ample power in a more compact body and fits into the cold shoe of any camera housing or clicks to arms and grips of the Flex-Connect system. Adjusting the flash to just the right brightness can easily be done with the large controls or the flash can simply be set to Auto Mode. The auto-sync feature reads and memorizes the pre-flash of any camera. The 2014 version of the SeaLife DC1400 features an easy-setup mode for the Sea Dragon flash or lights in any combination. The lights can even turn off automatically while the flash fires if desired.
The new ultra-compact system will not only appeal to the advanced pro, but also to the beginner, who in the past has been often intimidated by bulky, complex systems. Whether the flash is mounted on top of the camera or on its side, handling and control is made easier than ever before.
The Sea Dragon Flash is available at dive and photo dealers at a list price of $399.95 (Item # SL963).
