Just today I saw the new snoot from SEACAM for their Seaflash 150 and Seaflash 100. As expected, it is very clever and quite elegant in execution.

Wish I had some in-water shots to show you, but this one belongs to someone else and will be in Lembeh next week.

The snoot integrates a replacement ring at the front of the strobe, attached via a pressure fit just as the diffuser likewise attaches. The snoot element inverts to make for a smaller package for travel, and contains special light concentrating lenses to consolidate the light down the "pipe".

Here are some shots I grabbed today as it passed through the studio:

My bad for rushing, trying to get this out the door in time for Fedex pickup. There is a third part of the snoot, which Adam showed us from his coverage at the BOOT show:

So, take all pictures above with a grain of salt, as I did not have configured properly. Although, it does suggest to me you can have two different diameters of cone of light, depending on which snoot extension is deployed. To me that offers additional imaging opportunities.
