The AF35's built-in sensor transmits data from the camera's flash to the AF35 strobe, varying the strobe's power automatically to replicate TTL exposure. The AF35 sensor is positioned to provide the most reliable strobe triggering possible without exposed cables which require maintenance and can tangle or break.
Two large, easy to read dials provide all of the settings necessary for control of the flash system. The AF35 strobe rear dial features OFF, Auto (TTL) plus six Manual Power settings. The AF35 sensor rear dial provides simple plus/minus EV exposure compensation in the Auto (TTL) mode. The system's comfortable rubberized grip and neutral buoyancy make it a pleasurable addition to any housing. A flexible arm system allows quick repositioning of the strobe angle and adds no weight to the system.
A simple battery door is easy to remove and replace and provides a clear view of the o-ring seal. The strobe's battery compartment is independently sealed from the electronics preventing further damage in the event of a flood.
A new hard anodized, machined aluminum tray provides added strength yet remains lightweight and low-profile. The dual tray features two 1/4-20 tripod mounting points in addition to mounting locations for both Ikelite and non-Ikelite housings. Each end features a t-slot for attachment of an AF35 strobe or ball with T-mount. Each end alternatively accepts our signature Quick Release Handle, giving you full flexibility to mix and match lighting and accessories!
