Brightest, Smoothest Coverage
In a real world, side-by-side comparison, the DS160 remains one of the brightest strobes on the market. More importantly, the quality of light is exceptional due to a round flashtube and reflector designed specifically to delivery the softest, most even coverage possible.
The DS160 remains the favorite of pros worldwide for delivering a warm light without needing to add a light-dimming diffuser.
LED Focus Light
A bright, concentrated LED aiming light provides more than enough light for focusing or as a night diving light. The LED turns off and on when the strobe is fired, ensuring that no bright spots will ruin your photo.

More Flashes, Faster
State of the art Li-Ion battery technology produces over 450 full power flashes at an unprecedented 1.4 second recycle time. Our proprietary quick-release toggle system attaches the battery pack with ease and confidence, making a flooded battery virtually impossible.
TTL Flash Exposure
When combined with a compatible Ikelite TTL system or film TTL system, the DS160 automatically adjusts brightness to provide perfect exposure whether you're shooting macro, portrait or wide angle.
Neutral Buoyancy in Salt Water
The DS160 is approximately neutral in salt water for the most ergonomic and comfortable handling of your camera system. Other strobes require expensive buoyancy arms to provide this key feature!
