At the Ikelite booth, Mike Rabideau took me though some of Ikelite’s recent products. Next week, Ikelite will be shipping its underwater housing for the Nikon D700 ($1,600 retail). Also shipping next week are underwater housings for the Nikon D90 and Canon 50D.
The DS-160 Substrobes were on display—the first time I had seen one in person. They look nearly identical to the venerable DS-125 strobe, but have 10 manual power settings and a LED modeling light. The modeling light automatically turns off when the strobe fires. The DS-160 uses the same battery pack as does the DS-125.
Ikelite has a new wide-angle video lens, the WP80, which is 90° above water and 80° below.
Finally, Ikelite was showing the PRO-V 8LED video light (which uses 8 LEDs, obviously) and the C-LITE 8LED dive light. They burn for 10 hours on a full set of batteries, and take 8 x C cells.
