Watershot has announced new and upgraded STRYKR LED lighting products. These new models feature dive and video lights heads that range from 900 to 3000 Lumens. The STRYKR video light heads now come in three varieties: 900, 1800, and 3000 Lumen. They use a separate battery pack, and Watershot offers a variety of these packs allowing the option of one or two light heads to be powered per battery pack.
The new models’ release dates and prices are still to be confirmed.
The new STRYKR video light heads offer significant upgrades and expansion of the Watershot offering. The Watershot products are a sophisticated and bright modular LED light head designed to work with underwater video and HDSLR cameras. All Watershot lights are configured with advanced closed-loop electronics with thermal feedback, thus permitting safe use in or out of the water.
The V900 light head (900 Lumens) is built around a 900-lumen LED and specially designed reflector and lens, which provides an extremely even and surprisingly intense flood of light. The V900 light head is significantly smaller than Watershot previous video light head and is 25% brighter. There are three levels of power available to the photographer. The color temperature of the light is 5600K and the beam angle is 75°. The flood beam offers a soft outer edge to the light pattern. The light head features an included ball mount to provide mounting flexibility. The V900 light head is compatible with the full line of STRYKR batteries, cords and accessories.
The V1800 light head (1800 Lumens) was added to the Watershot video light options this year. The V1800 combines two 900-Lumen LED’S into a single, compact, and robust light head. The compact size and high lumen output of this light head is a great addition to the Watershot video light offering. This light head has three power modes, 5600K color temperature, 75° flood pattern, and includes a ball mount. The V1800 is also compatible with the full line of STRYKR batteries, cords and accessories.
Watershot also produces a version of the dual LED light head that combines a video and dive light into a single light head, it is called the C1800. The C1800 light head utilizes one of the two LEDs to create a 900-Lumen video light pattern (75° flood) and the second LED to create a 900-Lumen focused 8° spot beam. The light head allows users to use the light in SPOT mode, FLOOD mode, or combo (both lights on).
Additionally, Watershot introduces the V3000 light head (3000 Lumens) to their line-up. This video light head uses 7 LEDs to achieve high output and even flood of light. This high quality light head is constructed from a hard-anodized aluminum housing and glass port. The V3000 has advanced power level controls that allow users to quickly switch between preset modes or adjust to any light output level in between modes. The V3000 light head has a 75° beam pattern, 5600K color temperature, and includes a ball mount. As with the other Watershot video light heads, the V3000 is compatible with the full line of STRYKR batteries, cords and accessories.
In addition to the new light heads listed above, Watershot also added new battery configurations, additional cords, mounting options, and accessories. The Watershot LED lighting products continue to improve and offer users a wide range of light heads, batteries, and accessories to choose from.
