Primary video lighting for any underwater video - New Ikelight Pro-2800 Video Lite LED now available from Cameras Underwater.
Cameras Underwater, the UK’s leading specialist in underwater photography, is pleased to announce the addition of Ikelight’s Pro-2800 Video Lite LED to its extensive range of underwater photography products. The Pro-2800 Video Lite LED is designed to be used as primary video lighting for any underwater video, digital still or digital SLR system and delivers an exceptional lighting system for divers and underwater videographers at an affordable cost.
The light head has an output of 2800 lumens – much brighter than most comparable LED, halogen and HID systems currently on the market – and a perfectly diffused 100 degree beam provides even coverage from macro to wide angle. The Pro-2800 LED is daylight balanced with a 5500K colour temperature that ensures the most true, natural tones, which is especially helpful when combining artificial light with ambient light in seascapes.
The Pro-2800 LED Video Lite features a compact and ergonomic design with a large rotating power switch on the back of the light head. The heavy-duty and reliable mechanical switch is within easy reach and features click-stops to indicate power setting by feel. The power supply cord is properly positioned to stay out of the diver's way and reduce stress on the product.
High, medium (75%) and low (50%) power settings are available to fine tune exposure and customise the lighting to meet a videographer’s needs. A low power Flashlight mode is conveniently placed between the most frequently used ‘Off’ and ‘High’ positions for quick changes to conserve energy. The 700 lumen Flashlight mode is perfect for use as a primary night diving light, focus light, spotting light or for shooting macro video. In addition, an emergency SOS mode flashes the light in the universal distress signal pattern to gain the attention of a dive buddy or rescue party, if required.
The Pro-2800 LED has highly efficient driver circuitry which yields consistent brightness over long burn times: 90 minutes at full power, 165 minutes at 50% power and 270 minutes at Flashlight (25%) power.
Available from Cameras Underwater as a complete underwater lighting solution with battery pack, charger and choice of either Flex or SA-100 ball socket arm, the Pro-2800 LED has an RRP from £729.99 inc VAT
The NiMH battery pack mounts on the bottom of the housing for better weight distribution and improved handling underwater. Additional battery packs can be purchased to quickly exchange for a fully charged pack enabling shooting to continue uninterrupted.
