I have often maintained that one of the most favorite aspects of scuba diving (at least for me) is being able to take photographs of the things that I see while scuba diving. At Aquatic Adventures Scuba Academy, a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Dive Center in Alexandria, Virginia we sell a fair amount of underwater photography dive equipment and also teach the PADI Underwater Photography, PADI Underwater Videography and the PADI Digital Underwater Photography as well.
One of the first things that you learn when taking photographs underwater is that you lose a lot of the natural color in your underwater photographs unless you use a strobe or flash with your camera. This is because the water filters light and naturally removes much of the color that would otherwise be present.
Over the years not only have underwater cameras improved and become smaller and easier to use but so have the underwater strobes and flashes. The new Sealife Sea Dragon Flash is a fine case in point.
Bring Out Brilliant Color in Your Photographs:
The powerful and compact Sea Dragon Flash makes it simple to add light to your images down to 200 feet/60 meters. Reducing backscatter and producing rich, deep colors in underwater photos, the Sea Dragon Flash is compatible with SeaLife camera models, and other brands of underwater cameras, that use an internal flash.
Fine Tune Your Brightness For The Perfect Shot:
The Sea Dragon Flash has a variable power adjustment and large controls make it easy to fine tune brightness, while leaving the flash in Auto Mode automatically adjusts brightness for optimal exposure. A quick-release button detaches flash head for aiming in hard to reach areas.
