i-Divesite offers a range of accessories for underwater photographers, including Titan, a new set of strobe arms and clamps made of 100% titanium. Kelvin Lee told me that the arms resist rusting and are much stronger than standard aluminum arm systems, though pricing and weight may crimp that advantage. Also new for this year was the i-Torch, a 3-LED focus light with a choice between “warm” color temperature or “bright white,” running on 4AA batteries and with a burn time of 1.5 hours. An 80° beam provides up to 600 lumens of output, and the power level can be adjusted between 1/4, 1/2, and full power, with an emergency SOS flash setting.
Keeping with the theme, i-Divesite has introduced the i-Buddy LED tank light in ‘anole’ and ‘firefly’ variants, the former featuring five (red,green,yellow, blue, and purple) alternating colors, and the latter in a single, constant color. At less than $20, the ‘firefly’ version burns for up to 20 hours, and uses user-replaceable CR1220 batteries. Hopefully, the i-Buddy makes sure you don’t i-lose your dive group underwater…
